Can anyone fill in the details of this Dart? Was it a one time LO car?
I notice the '69 marker lights, plastic windows, shaved door handles, spindle mount wheels....but still has rear leafs. Seems like not originally a LO.
It's at Atco, Nhra sanctioning, but appears no class markings on either car. Looks too early for p/s but also the wrong equipment for an m/p car.
I've seen pictures of Chick's Charger that was more funny car/ match racer from around then but was curious if anyone knows the story on this Dart.

I'm pretty sure this is a home-built car. It was a match race-type car built like an Ultra Stock (AHRA/UDRA?) from what I recall.

P.S. Jack Arnew may know

Charger ran Ultra Stock circuit. At the same time Glen Fraiser (BLACK JACK) and I were running a TBolt it that circuit. After Sam's father (Sam Auxier Sr.) started the Super Stock circuit and I was driving for Sam Pannuty I lost any connection With Chuck's rides. I'll email Chick and ask him about the Dart, and get back to you all. Memory ain't what it was 40 odd years ago.

Here is an awesome pic I found of Ruel Nichol in the Denny's Dart.
Ruel told me over a telephone once that he had this car sent by rail to a local rail yard where he picked it up and drove it home roughly 20 miles. This when it was brand new!!!!

Notice the door mirror and differences through the sequence of pics
