Post Re: looking for don carlton rear chassis pics

Your best bet would be to get hold of the owner of the original cars or others associated with Don that are still with us. But I found this link with lots of photos which may help.

Off hand, what you described doesn't sound right.

Who is Steve Carlton? All of the Missile cars were built by Chrysler contractors (Ron Butler, Dan Knapp, Dick Oldfield, Joe Pappas etc) and all of Don's personal race cars (Dart Sports etc) were built in NC by Don and Clyde Hodges. Don's son Don Carlton Jr even has a chassis business in NC but I never heard of Steve Carlton.
