Also results from B-ville where a '56 GH set a "D" Coupe/ Sedan record at 145.16 MPH. Late 1957 .
That was by Donald Stevens of Seattle , Washington . No pics of that

Well, I did mean that there were no pics In that magazine .
That pic in the other thread is from HRM apparently .
However , there is a day by day narrative of the events at B-ville , and some info on the speeds in the up and back runs,
in the Pop Mech. magazine .

During a qualifying run , the car went 146.810 .
The record runs , though , were 142.180 down , and 148.148 back for the average of 145.164 .
I will post this on the other thread as well.
