Notes: Blown fuel, late hemi, direct drive dragster-style funny. 200" chassis with 18' long Dart roadster body draped over it. Driver Emery Cook sat in the trunk, slingshot-style. Constructed by Garlits after the rear-engine Dart Charger he purchased from Dick Branstner (later renamed, repainted the Polka Dart, later yet renamed and repainted one final time as Garlits Dart) was destroyed in crash at Detroit. This "funnier-than-most" car became the first ultra-stock to crack the 200-mph barrier with a 8.03-200.44 blast at St. Petersburg, Fla. in mid-October '66. -- RT

Notes: Rear-engine blown fuel. This replaced the Cuda he crashed earlier in the year. Car was sold to Fred Goeske in 1966. Photo is actually early 1966, but reflects the late 1965 2nd car. Don Montgomery's "Dragster and Funny Car Memories" book quotes unattributed times of 8.88-178.92. Per Chris Martin, Tom ran 8.82,-171 at Lions on the night that Dyer ran the great 8.63.

Notes: Blown fuel, titanium frame, in-out box (direct drive). Gary Southern was the driver, although this report says car co-owner Roger Hardcastle was the driver. Don't know for certain. This is a second car, as the first Stinger flipped.

Notes: The Akins and Hardcastle Stinger II, driven by Gary Southern, was a Chrysler powered, direct drive, tube framed Kellison Astra kit car. Neither fish nor fowl, it ran in the funny car classes, the sports car classes, and the fuel altered classes. This car was one of the reasons that NHRA, when they instituted the Funny Car classes, specified "Production Bodies only." Hardcastle held the CC/FD record.

Notes: Blown fuel, as seen here. Tube AWB chassis. Landy, who spent some time behind the wheel of Shirley Shahan's "Drag On Lady" Plymouth in 1966, started 1966 in his 1965 Dodge, sold it and built this Dart. Started with normal wheelbase, then AWB'd it. Late in 1966, he aded this blower. Sold car in 1967 to Gene Kidder, who crashed the car in 1968.

Notes: Comet roadster with cammer, C-6 combo. Jack Chrisman got one of four original Logghe built Comets in 1966. Jack took his proven blown 427 SOHC out of the Chrisman Comet to run in the new flip top car, unlike Nicholson and Schartman, who ran injected cammers. In 1966, it seemed that the four lightweight Comets dominated the funny car competition like no other cars. Car burned to the ground at New York National mid-1966. Bought old Comet back from Dee Keaton to finish season. Chrisman ran a quickest-ever 8.71 and 184 mph at Riverside during the year. Need to confirm which combo ran that number.

Notes: Richard 'Dick' Branstner did not drive but was contracted by Dodge to do several projects in the 1964-66 era. This was one, created as a mid-engine Experimental to move weight rearward in the Dodge Dart compact body. the motor and tranmission was located just forward of the rear axle. This followed Branstner's Little Red Wagon, presented to Super Stock standout Bill "Maverick' Golden. Associate Jay Howell drove this car, first called the 'Dart Charger' and later repainted as the 'Polka-Dart.' The car was destroyed on July 11, 1966 after being turned over to sponsored Dodge racer Don Garlits earlier that year for further development. driver Emery Cook was uninjured in that accident, a testimony to Branstner's careful construction. Chris Martin cited a best speed of 171 mph.

Notes: Custom piece. Rear engine futuristic funny car. Car was based on AMT's anticipated entry into the world of small mass produced cars for the public. Basically a kit car was planned, but it never got off the ground, beyond the Piranha prototype. In essence, the car was a Catch 22 -- too radical to be deemed a funnycar, and too slow as a top fuel dragster. The car was ill handling. Astute match racers would rely on their water cooled entries to burn the car down, resulting in its loss. However, when all went well, no flopper, even the Nicholson Comet could touch it. Per Chris Martin, Walt Stevens went a confirmed 8.71, 187 at Irwindale. Also 182.64 per Drag News. Was the 8.295 Walt or Connie Swingle (who did run an 8.29 in October 1966).

Notes: Pat Foster is a famous chassis builder of many funny cars from the 1960s into the 1980s. Foster also drove many funny cars, including the Mickey Thompson Mach I in 1969. The car was the sister car to the one Danny Ongais drove. Foster built both cars, revolutionizing funny car racing in 1969 with his chassis design. The cars were lighter than their competition, which gave them a distinct advantage over the other funny cars during the first half of the season. The competition started to transition to pure funny car chassis to keep up with Foster's machines. While Ongais went on a winning spree, Foster had a series of gremlins that kept him from winning. The car showed potential with a 6.99 clocking along with a reported 215.31 mph blast at Kansas City. But fate stepped in when Pat Foster was involved in a two-car accident with Gerry Schwartz at Dallas International during the NHRA Springnationals. Schwartz did not survive the crash. Foster continued to build funny cars and became a national-event-winning driver. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. info provided by James Ibusuki).

Notes: World champion in 1976. Also 6.02 at Winters. Both 6.02 and 5.97 were national records (the 5.98 at Ontario 75 was not backed up). Went 235.60 at Sanair 76. Where was the 247 run? 6.24 Gainesville Dragway Track record. Won 7 of 8 NHRA National events in '76, only loss was to Burgin at Indy. Great article on HotRod.com with Snake describing his performance advantage over the rest of the FC field in '75 and '76.

Notes: Gene Snow was one of top '60s funny car stars in his "Rambunctious" Dodges. Snow went through the ranks of Super Stocks, F, Xs, and flip-top funny cars. Even though Gene won the U.S. Nationals twice in a row in '66 and '67 with his Dodge,rn it was his '69 Mini-Charger that makes this list. The second Charger, the mini-version, replaced the full sized one he debuted at the end of '68. Snow had been working on the direct drive Crowerglide setup and perfected it with the '69 Charger. Snow has never been known to shy away from a new idea. The Mini-Charger ran a best E.T. of 7.13 at 213.27 mph. With the Crowerglide direct drive unit the car would leave the line behind the automatic transmission funny cars of the day and charge by them on the big end. The car was one of first funny cars to top the 200 mph barrier and Snow did it on a regular basis. The chassis for Snow's killer top end direct drive Mini-Charger was built by R&B race Cars of Kenosha, Wisconsin (John Buttera and Dennis Rollain). NOTE: This photo is actually the '68 Logghe car with a new Fiberglass Ltd., molded in red metalflake, '69 Mini-Charger body that Gene ran throughout 1969. This is the car that ran 7.13 at Rockingham, NC. The R&B car was driven by Jake Johnston (see the photo in item 4013). 213.78 Rockingham NC, 9-69

Notes: Fred Goeske came to fame as the second owner of the B&M Plymouth Dealers Barracuda in late 1966. Goeske raced the heavy stock rear engine car until the end of 1967. Tom McEwen ran this car in 1965 and early 1966. February 17, 1967 (National Dragster) says this car ran '8.50s in 1966' but confirmed 8.71 at Las Vegas (per 10-14-66 National Dragster).

Notes: Doug Thorley's Corvair is one of the best remembered funny cars of the Sixties. It was known both for its performance and its looks. The Corvair replaced his "Chevy 2 Much" '65 Chevy II. The new Pat Foster, Ron Scrima-built piece had tinted PlExiglas windows, a lace paint job, and gold painted Halibrand mags. The car was the poster child of late Sixties fads. Thorley had one of the great weekends of his career at Indy '67. The Doug's Headers Corvair ran 7.69 to win the race over a number of Hemi-powered machines. The 7.69 run and Indy win were the high point of Thorley's funny driving career. The notoriety from the win led to Thorley getting a deal with American Motors to build a rear-engine funny car, but the AMC machines never reached the success of the Chevy. On August 6, 1967, Doug Thorley and his supercharged Corvair ran the quickest pass to date by a Funny Car, a 7.86-184 mph. That day at Lions he also backed it up with a superb 7.91. At the Indy Nationals of that year he also ran a nice 7.83, winning the race as well. -- BS | Components: 490 cubes (stroked 427 Chev), GMC 6-71 blower, Enderele "bugcatcher" injection, Art Carr TorqueFlite-9" Ford rear w, 3.90 cogs, Exhibition Engineering (Pat Foster and Ron Scrima) chassis, coil-over shocks. Featured in 9-67 Car Craft. -- RT

Notes: Rear engine blown fuel. This car was run by McEwen in 1965 and into '66. He had crashed an earlier one in 1965. McEwen set top speed at the 1966 Winternationals at 170.45. He then sold the car to Fred Goeske. McEwen drove the car at first for Goeske, before turning driving over to him. Goeske ran this car into 1968 season.

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: 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: Funny car on altered chassis. Just to ad a little insight to the discussion of who had the first funny car. This question has been asked many times before. If anyone has any other info, I'd be interested in hearing about it. To clarify the definition of "funny car," it's a tube chassis, all glass body, supercharged engine. To the best of my knowledge, I built the first car that was known as a "funny car." Attached is a picture of the car. I ran it for the first time the third week of May 1965 at U.S. 30 Drag Strip in Gary, Indiana. The following weekend I ran at Gil Cohen's Detroit Dragway on Saturday night & Toledo Dragway on Sunday. I have the timing slips. Ron Pellegrini. Also credited with 9.21 at 164.83. | If you check it out you may find out that this was DON SCHUMUACHER'S first funny car. - Dave Lindsay
