As the guy has none of the required markings on the car to denote class and displacement I can't tell if that thing has a small block or big block "A" class engine. Don't know what to think other than maybe it has never been run under SCTA rules.

So, all it is is a Studebaker body with non-Studebaker engine or is the engine one of ours?

Terry Hunt has campaigned the car as the "Guam Bomb".
I have pictures of the car in primer the first year it was run, back in '98.
I believe it was recently sold (which would explain why the numbers and decals are gone).

I have seen the Guam Bomb in person it is beautiful, I runs a turboed sbc and every bit as fast as it looks. It was recently listed on Racing Junk for 150,000.00 Dont know the actual sale price though
