Default Re: Ron Garey's 68 olds

Chuck,

Have you seen the article in May 8 th, 2007 issue of Muscle Car Review that is about a 1968 Cutlass? It is just a short piece abourt a guy in Ohio finding a Car in the weeds that was raced as a Hurst Olds and had Chesrown on the doors and Ron Garey on the front fenders. They say that it sarted out as a red F-85 Police Interceptor.

Take Care,

Daren

The article in 1971 or 72 discussed Ron and Jack, rebuilding an engine in a hotel room, and had a photo of Ron with his arm up, car and transporter. Other photos showed rear suspension etc. IIRC, it was in SS&DI. I won't have access to my old magazines for a week or two.

Since it looks like there is a Chesrown Olds theme here,I thought I would post this picture.This was a former car of Paul Mayo.

Like the other 66 racers, Garey's car started as a regular 442 and was converted to W30 just before the NHRA Nationals in 66. The 54 factory W30s were produced to make the package stock legal. The conversion parts were also available through GMPD. Garey's 66 car was also featured in the SS&DI ad for their 67 SS Nationals, and held the SS/E record at 12.36 sec. The 66 W30 is unique in that Olds intended people to convert regular 442s. Virtually all other "special" or limited production cars had to be bought as such and then raced. The wrecked 68 car was rebodied in 2 weeks, and went on to win the Spring nationals at Englishtown.

Thanks all for the phot'os, first off let me say the wrecked 68 happened in Hyde Park dragway I was 11 years old know one would tell me what happened till they knew he was ok. If some of you remember the shut off was up hill and a car dumped a bunch of oil on the track but no one knew. The 68 Hurst car was not real as they never really made a post car, and that's the one the guy found in a field.
