Notes: Arnie Beswick might not have been the biggest winner of the sixties, but he did put on a hell of a show. Beswick was a loyal Pontiac racer, though there was a short stint with a factory-supported Comet A/FX in early 1965. The "Tameless Tiger" 1963 funny car was home-built from 1963 lightweight factory Tempest parts and steel to replace the previous blown GTO's weight and wheelbase restrictions. working doors, wheelbase mods, and leaf springs meant it was a little scary to say the least. Beswick had already stepped up to blown nitro after beginning with gas in the previous GTO at the urging of future funny car star Frank Oglesby. this gave the greater Chicago area three blown nitro funny cars in 1964, including Gary Dyer in the Mr. Norm's Dodge, Ron Pellegrini's Super Mustang, and Beswick's goat. In adition to the wheelbase changes, the "Tameless Tiger" was rebuilt to be much lighter than when it first raced in AFX. how much of the rare original FX vehicle was used is unknown. As a supercharged fuel car, it was a serious contender nationwide the two seasons it was raced, noted for extreme wheelstands and top-end antics. The TT was crashed once by Arnie at Cecil County in early 1966, and again much more severely by driver Arnie Behling during a North Carolina match race in 1967. Beswick never fixed it and it was relegated to the Morrison junkpile. - Geoff Stunkard | The remains were purchased by Mr. Donnie Reeves of Marietta, GAA/in 1994, who restored the original Body utilizing new fiberglass front end & doors. Don consulted with Arnie Beswick to ensure the TT was as correct as possible. The car even made a couple passes at a nostalgia show in the mid 90s. The TT was purchased by Mr. Don Snyder Jr. of New Springfield, OH, in 2001 and currently resides in his extensive lightweight & drag car collection (see racer link). | Need to confirm best times.

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: Hard to say whether his tiger-striped AWB LeMans coupe or the beautiful "Star Of The Circuit" GTO is the Farmer's most famous racecar. The "Star" was built on a budget. Beswick didn't have the dough for a full tube chassis, so he took the stock frame from under the '64 Mystery Tornado GTO and had the Logghe Bros. ad a tube front axle to it. This car has been restored and is running serious laps at nostalgia drag events. -- RT

Notes: This is Arnie's 1968 car. He did run it some in 1969. A September 1969 American Rodder magazine credits the car with a 7.71 at Quaker City and 194.36 mph at Orlando. However,it's unclear whether the times were run in 1968 or early 1969. Fiberglass LTD body.
