There was a Johnny White that drove the Houston Hustler funny cars in the 1970s. Maybe that was the same guy?

That car was delivered to the Dodge dealer in Jesup, Ga. in 1965. It was red with tan interior. Raced for several years as "The Chinese Bandit". Once a record holder. If anyone has any further information please contact me @ allikat2805@hotmail.com. Thank you.

Thanks! I'll look into that.

The other picture with "The Super Commando" on the door, may be at Vargo Dragway? Dragstrip near Allentown PA?? Thanks for that tip Steve Stasko.

Picture from Facebook: Reported to be a garage built A990 clone "back in the day" but still a cool car with a lot of history.

The Cheshier car has been discussed here before. That is the car Greg Charney won Indy with in 1971. It was a real W051 car, not a clone. Ron Cheshier also owned Bill Gibbs' red/yellow/white Coronet as well.

Old thread, new question.
In the current 1964-65 NHRA class. guides, they list the 426/425hp-8v race hemi. I deduce that this was factored to about 500-505hp so it put the cars into S/S, below the 7.00 weight break.


But they also list a 426/400hp-4v race hemi. I wondered why (besides NASCAR), but if factored the same way, say up to 480hp or so, that would put the 4bbl hemi cars right around W/P=7.08 so they could run in A/S for 1965.


I don't even know if the 426/400-4v race hemi existed in NHRA in 1965, but if it did, was it really factored that way, could those car run in A/S=7.00, and why is there no evidence of that happening?


Leads me to believe NHRA did not recognize the 426/400-4v, whether factored or not?
