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.

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: 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: 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: First Jungle Jim FC was a steel body that ran off the end of Fremont. 2220 lbs. 110" box tube AWB. Liberman started 1966 in "Hercules" Chevy II, then teamed with Lew Arrington on "Brutus" GTO, then debuted this Chevy II late in 1966. These stats are on fuel, but ran alky in car to begin with. August 1970 Car Craft interview says car ran a best of 8.19-182 in 1966, but that sounds more like 1967. I've found an 8.48-169.54. End of year for sale ad claims 8.19, 177.86 best, so that is the winning combo until further info is found.

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: 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: 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: Photo from Indy 1986. Need to verify these times for 1986 (match race at E-town?) Seem very quick and our 1987 entry cites a 5.54 as Johnny's career best? Ran a world beating 5.588, 263.62 at Pomona Winters 85 that Bernstein eclipsed with a 5.559 at Rockingham Fall.

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

Notes: The 1969 Chi-Town Hustler Dodge Charger was legendary for its long smoking burnouts and its tough performance. The team claimed that the car had a 90 percent win-loss record in 1969. Minick did the driving, Austin Coil tuned the engine, and John Farkonas was the behind the scenes engineer. The car was built with an offset roll cage for the driver, one of the last funny cars to be built in that configuration. The Hustler ran a best of 7.02 at 206.42, but also ran 7.08, 7.10, and two 7.12s at five different tracks. As tough as the car was in 1969, it became outdated by 1971 and a new car had to be built.

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: "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: 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.

Notes: This was one of the original four Mercury Comets built by the Logghe Brothers. Nicholson, Chrisman and Kenz & Leslie got the other three. Injected 427 SOHC, C-6 automatic combo. Set both ends of the S/XS national record at 8.61 and 172.72 mph at Tulsa World Finals and bettered that by better than three-tenths at Indy. -- DW | The 1966 NHRA Nationals at Indy were the first to feature dedicated classes for funny cars: S/XS, A/XS, B, XS. Supercharged Experimental Stock was where the blown cars and class-dominating (but normally aspirated) Logghe Comets went to play. Schartman and his yellow RSE Merc clinched the S/XS trophy with a 8.28-174.41 blast. Since the NHRA had not yet established a formal Funny Car Eliminator, the class runs for S/XS were the closest thing the fans were going to get. -- RT | Listed in FUELFC due to its lightweight, flip top configuration despite being injected.
