Terry Prince putting a hole shot on the factory '62 405hp 406 Ford Galaxie 4-door for the B/Stock class win at the 1962 NHRA Winternationals. Prince's 320hp '60 348 went 13.37 at 105 mph, his quickest and fastest ever

I saw a coupe version at Hot August Nights several years ago. It was nicely done. He called his a "Mustero". I think I like that ^ fastback version better.

The 409 was not available in 1959 Chevies, but that was my first thought.
They may not have come out until '61, but it was out in time for the '62 Winternats. However, as Cobrajoe pointed out, that Chevy did have a 348, and made the holeshot in order to win. Such are the breaks for heads-up racing.

I think B/S is on the side window of the Ford, IIRC, those stock classes were limited to the engine that was available for that model year from the factory, and displacement was limited to stock size plus a 0.030 overbore.
Interestingly enough, the NHRA Stock classes were based on factory advertised horsepower and shipping weight, I don't have a '62 NHRA rulebook, but in the '65 rulebook, the B/S ("B" Stock) class was 9.50 to 10.59 pounds per advertised horsepower.

Some things that caught my eye at the local cruise spot last night. Always
some good stuff that shows up there.


I think this is a '51, though not stock by any means

Always like these

Side note, the engine block in my '92 bronco came out of a '69 Torino.

I love that Crown Vicky, my dad's friend and best man had one, they booked it across the Suisun Bay Bridge in early '59 with the speedo buried, according to Dad.

It appears that my Dad made an error in telling me this story, as the name of the bridge is the Carquinez Bridge over Carquinez Strait on I-80, but at that time in the late Fifties, I-80 was under construction, and it may have been called the Suisun bay Bridge when it was still US 40. Dad's been gone a couple years now, so I can't ask him.

Damn that pic brings back memories! …..riding in the back seat. Mom hits the brakes and I'd hit the back of the front seat and it made a perfect ramp to guide me into the full metal jacket - unpadded - dashboard......good times.....good times....no long term effects....good times....good times.
