    That's quite a masterful bit of work. I wonder who did it? They were craftsmen, for sure.

    I used to race all the time at Oswego Drag Raceway SW of Chicago back in the early early seventies....
    I 'think' this car used to run there.... But it is/was a hardtop.

    Once I purged that image from my mind, I really like what I saw!
    That is exactly how it came a cross to me too!
    Cool look though.

    The Cunningham does have a Stude connection.. Briggs Cunningham worked with Bill Frick quite a bit.

    And you should all know who Bill Frick is.

    [QUOTE=Pat Dilling;601498]Interestingly enough I thought the same thing at first glance. Maybe because I've had a couple Vegas and always thought they made cool drag cars. If those are NHRA numbers then it is Division 3 which would be Eastern Iowa if it is Iowa at all. The sponsor lettering seems to say IL. American Screen Printing is is Joliet according to their web page, or is that your sponsor and number?

    We bought the car in chicago. we are located in so ca. we just wanted a 53-54 stude, cause as a child, I had 4 or 5 by the time I was 16. we have a dodge 360 stroked to 408 thats going in the car. still a lot of work to do, as it is a glass front clip.

    Yep! The similar arc of the beltline, and the full-radius wheel openings especially.

    Ah, that's better!:

    (Not better than the Stude!)

    Never said it was a good or bad look, just the first thing that came to mine.
