History

  • This car was built to run BB/FC back in the late 70's but never ran. The Horvaths bought it right out of the barn it was put away in back in 1980. This was a virgin car when the Horvaths got it.
  • They have ran the car for several years with a iron 392 Hemi. They recently stepped up to the newer 426 Hemi.
  • The paint and lettering was applied by Brad Horvath. This is truly a family affair. Several of the grand kids run junior dragsters and hope to step up some day.
