Notes: Blown direct-drive 427 Ford on fuel. AKA Super Cyclone. Ran 'low nines.' (Need exact ET). Though generally run as an exhibition car, closest class would've been S/FX (Supercharged Factory experimental). Considered by most to be the first true fuel funny car, this car began with an FE wedge motor on nitro, and was created as the huge publicity rollout on the gas-burning Dodge Chargers team started. Former dragster standout Jack Chrisman agreed to drive, with the car built by Mercury subcontractor Bill Stroppe. Once complete, Jack would show up unannounced at the DC's publicized race demo dates, reportedly bankrolled directly by Mercury through Helen Sachs dealership in Downey, Ca. (and, no, Dodge was not happy about these appearances). The direct drive meant it smoked the tires most of its run just like a fuel dragster of this era did. Chrisman ran the car for two seasons, converting to red paint with fresh 1965 body panels, and replacing the wedge with SOHC power on fuel soon after the 1965 Winternationals. The motor was also set back at this time. In this format, the car was in the first-ever NHRA side-by-side blown nitro 'doorslammer' race when Jack raced Don Gay for B, Fuel Dragster honors at the 1965 Nationals. Sold to Dee Keaton, Jack 'the Bear' would bring the car back out briefly after the August 1966 fire in his Logghe roadster at New York National Speedway. Former Ford racer and collector Jim Barillaro found the remains of this car in the early 1980s and restored it. Therefore this, the first fuel funny car, is also indirectly responsible for inaugurating the restored funny car era, which in turn has birthed the modern nostalgia FC movement. And Jim Barillaro will still occasionally cackle this car on nitro.

Notes: Sunday Oct 12, 1975. The "Snake" makes history on a pit lane drag strip no less, at Ontario: 5.987 at 237.46 in the semi's against Raymond Beadle at the Winston World Finals. Also went 241.53 for the sport's first 240 fuel FC. - Ricko. Strange thing about the 241. it was not possible on the 3 decimal clocks of the day, which only displayed 241.28 and 241.93. It is likely that Prudhomme actually ran 241.93, but the clock was misread as 241.53. Inaugural member of the Cragar Five Second Funny Car Club. Won 6 of 8 NHRA National events in '75 - biggest loss was Indy to Beadle and the Blue Max.

Notes: Baddest dog in the land. Ran quickest and fastest times in the class in Round 1 at Ontario 72 (6.29). Then ran 6.30-235.60 in Round 2 and 6.31 in Round 3. Lost in finals to Jim Dunn when Pat redlighted. Earlier in the year, Foster had a blower explosion at Lions in May, hit the guardrail and destroyed the body. They put a new body on it and repaired the chassis at Buttera's.

Notes: Car ran 6.16 under the Care-Free banner. Also 6.23 at NHRA Summers and 231.95. The 6.01, 235 was at a Lebanon Valley match race. Photo taken at the 1974 NHRA Springnationals, National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio. Prudhomme drove this car to FC win at '74 Gators, was upset by Snow at Springs, and defeated Billy Meyer at Indy for back to back Indy FC wins. | Regarding Prudhomme at Lebanon Valley in '74. I wasn't there the August night he ran 6.01. I was there a month earlier when he ran 6.16, which was quicker than the national record by a few hundredths, as I recall. So everyone was talking about the great ETs at Lebanon (Mineo had run in the 6.20s with the Coke Circuit that year -- unheard of numbers for him). But then in '75, Prudhomme's Monza could not go below 6.40. He never ran a 6.0 ET there again, not with his Monzas, not with his Arrows (he did run in the 'twenties' with the Arrow, maybe the 'teens' once or twice). I asked Tommy Ivo about it and he said that back in 1974 the track's starting line beams were positioned too high for FCs and the cars were staging with their fenders and the clocks weren't starting until after the entire car had left the line and cleared the beams. I don't know if or how this is true, but it's what Ivo told me. A lot of the northeast FC racers were not aware of this explanation, so I don't know why Ivo had the dirt and the others didn't. - David Hapgood

Notes: Jack Chrisman got one of four original Logghe-built Comets in 1966. Jack took his proven blown 427 cammer out of the 1965 Comet to run in the new flip top car, unlike Nicholson and Schartman, who ran injected motors. In 1966, it seemed that the four lightweight Comets dominated the funny car competition like no other cars. Chrisman's high point in his funny car career was his 7.60, 190.27 run at Indy in 1967. No other car ran in the sevens during qualifying. That run was light years ahead of the competition. Chrisman's career cooled by the end of the decade. | Won the "light" (2000 lbs.) funny car category at the 4th Hot Rod Magazine Championships at Riverside CA in April 1967.

Notes: Danny Ongais had gained fame as a top ranked dragster driver. Mickey Thompson was well known as a racer, track operator, and car owner. In 1969, the pair debuted a new lightweight transition style chassis Mustang. Pat Foster built the blue 427 SOHC powered Mustang as well as a red twin that he drove himself. The team was awesome that year. They won many national events with the car and Ongais ran a reported 6.96, 204.73. The team only lasted two years. Foster crashed in Dallas and Ongais went on to different rides by the end of 1970. The state of the art Mustang was outdated by 1970 due to the new, lighter, dragster style chassis other teams were debuting. Confirmed 7.37 at OCIR in 9-69. 204 at Indy 9-69 per DragStats. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. Info from Dennis Doubleday). Video link cites 6.96, 207 bests for 1969.

Notes: In 1965, funny cars were gaining popularity across the country. A lot of drag racers and fans alike regarded the funny car, FX cars as "circus" acts and not real race cars. The car that changed a lot of peoples' opinions on funny cars was the Mr. Norm's Grand-Spaulding Dodge. When Norm Krause and Gary Dyer brought the former Roger Lindamood factory altered wheelbase car to Lions in 1965, the team was not known outside of the Midwest. Dyer then ran 8.63 at Lions, and it went down as one of the great runs in history. The other new funny cars had just broken into the eights. This run and the many victories put Gary Dyer into the headlines. Car sold to Chris Fairly in 1966, re-possesed by Norm Krause, and sold to new owner in Texas. (Photo from Gary Dyer.

Notes: Steel GTO with factory frame. Along with Chrisman's Comet, Mr. Norm's AWB '65 Dodge and a handful of others, Beswick's blown Mystery Tornado match racer prompted Super Stock & Drag Illustrated to ask whether "we may see a return of the fuel coupe and sedan type racing, so popular in the early days of drag racing." -- RT | Built during the 1964 season when Jack Chrisman and the Dodge Chargers factory teams were grabbing headlines, this car also had the only set of aluminum 1964 GTO fenders Pontiac ever made according to Arnie. Beswick found the car so popular that he dropped his new A/FX Mercury sponsorship deal midway through the '65 season rather than park the Tornado. After building the 1963 Tameless Tiger Tempest, the chassis was sold to a circle track team in the Quad Cities region and was subsequently destroyed. The lightweight panels from the car were lost in a well-publicized fire at Beswick's farm. -- GS

Notes: "Big John" Mazmanian is known for having great looking cars that also ran great. Mazmanian ran a series of gassers and funny cars, all in his trademark Candy Apple Red. Big John's first funny car was a stunner. The '68 Barracuda featured deep shades of Candy Apple Red with real gold leaf lettering. Rich Siroonian, Big John's nephew, drove the beauty. The team took its biggest win at the 1968 Manufacturer's Funny Car Championships at Orange County, defeating Don Schumacher in the final. Siroonian's best times in the car were 7.30 at 192. -- BS | Multi-page build-up car feature in 1-69 Car Craft reported chassis by Ron Scrima's exhibition Engineering, motor to be 392" early hemi, and trans as B&M TorqueFlite. Photos confirm it was an early hemi, though there were suggestions they might switch to a later 426. -- RT

Notes: When the Ford Motor Company commissioned Logghe Stamping Company to build four Mercury Comets, drag racing would change forever. The four Comets, raced by Don Nicholson, Ed Schartman, Jack Chrisman, and Kenz & Leslie, were far ahead of the competition in technology. They were even ahead of fellow FoMoCo racers who were racing Holman-Moody Mustangs. The three had everybody else catching up to them in 1966. The best known of these four funny cars was Don Nicholson's "Eliminator I." The Comet's debut was less than graceful when the body came unlatched and flew off. Ford engineers burned the damaged body on the spot. The car was fixed and the "Eliminator I" went on a tear. In 1966, Nicholson was able to hold off the heavier stock bodied cars despite using an injected engine. A several hundred pound weight advantage clearly helped, but it having Earl Wade tuning for him did not hurt. This was the first funny car into the 7 second zone with a 7.96 at Martin. (Info Info from Dennis Doubleday. and Bill Duke). Aditional note: This was the first Nicholson racecar with an automatic (C-6 Ford). He preferred a stick, but period accounts report the centrally located drivers seat made it physically impractical to mount a manual shifter on the tunnel. | Classified S/XS due to extreme light weight, despite not being supercharged.
