Notes: Blown fuel, rear-engine Exhibition racer. former Dick Branstner, Jay Howell-built and campaigned "Dart Charger," also raced by Howell through 1965-early 1966 as "Polka Dart." Given by Dodge to Garlits in 1966 at Branstner's request. Cook was hired to drive and the car was converted to direct-drive at Garlits shop, then in Troy, Michigan. Repainted black as 'Don Garlits' Dart.' Per a four-page feature in "Drag Strip" 7-66 Garlits yanked the Dart's original TorqueFlite trans, replaced it with a direct drive unit and moved the entire mill rearward another 13 inches. This car was destroyed in a crash at Detroit Dragway on June 11, 1966, without injury to Cook. Garlits replaced this car with the "Don Garlits Dart 2," a slingshot rail with a Dart roadster shell that Cook also drove.

Notes: 1964 Hemi Dodge factory S/S - A/FX converted in late 1964 to a fully adjustable wheelbase using all Chrysler parts. This was a project Landy worked with the factory on, and it was converted after the 1964 Nationals to a moveable Dodge van front axle that was legal in AHRA. The rear axle could also be adjusted. Landy drove this car through the end of that season. it still exists and owner Pete Haldiman has made a case that it could be considered the first 'altered wheelbase' funny car. Similar changes were made to a Plymouth by Bill Flynn of New England, though Landy's was the most substantial and was documented in Hot Rod magazine.

Notes: Factory-built AWB. Acid-dipped by AeroChem and built at Amblewagon. Al Klier was also involved in this car in 1965. Smith got this deal as Learner was probably the leading Chrysler Imperial dealer in the Midwest. car was campaigned primarily regionally in 1965 and 1966. This shot is very early in the year, possibly before AHRA Beeline. Eventually converted to fuel injection that summer. Survived intact. located by Toli Polowick, stabilized by Mike Guffey, restored, now in the Greg & Kathy Mosley collection. -- GS

Notes: Jon Thorne Motors. The Jayhawker was built as a southern style match racer in the truest tradition. A 1963 Dodge Polara chassis, a 1964 Plymouth nose, and wheelbase alterations. Raced during 1965-66, car survives, was restored, and was actually being wheelstood and run on injected gas until the 1990s as an Exhibition car. Believed to be in a private collection.

Notes: The "Ramchargers" were a famed drag racing team that help developed the funny car class in the Sixties and well into the Seventies. The Ramchargers were a group of Chrysler engineers that raced on the side using the best of Chrysler engineering. The team ran a series of race cars including an altered '49 Plymouth ("High & Mighty") to a plethora of stocks and super stockers. The Ramchargers group included Dick Maxwell, Tom Hoover, Phil Goulet, Don Westerdale, Jim Thornton and many others. This bunch began the early development of the funny car. The Ramchargers were one of the first teams to have the 2% tweaked-wheelbase super stockers, having developed a 1964 car with these alterations. That 2% Experiment led to the next stage of the radical altered wheelbase funny cars. After building a test mule Plymouth with 10" front-15" rear wheelbase relocation, the Ramchargers acquired this A990 from Dodge. It was acid-dipped at AeroChem in California, and assembled with a minor, NHRA-legal 2% wheelbase relocation for the Winter national events. Mike Buckel drove it to a win at the AHRA event in Beeline Dragway, Arizona. Thornton drove the following NHRA weekend at Pomona without success against the Ford FX entries. It was converted to full AWB by the team itself that spring, reappearing for the first time on May 1, 1965, at York against Sox & Martin, where it clocked a 9.83 at 139 in its first appearance (and defeated Sox, who had clocked the first 9-second time just a week earlier). The car was campaigned extensively that year, culminating in an unreal 8.910 at 148.66 at Cecil County on August 7, 1965, running 50% fuel and the team's match-race 472" stroker engine. This was the reason the car did not compete at the Super Stock Nationals at York U.S. 30 that same day. The 8.91 time is backed up by 9.19-9.20 performances two weeks prior at Cecil County with the same combination on 30% nitro. As a result, this Coronet in the photo (shown at Acquaso, Md., in early 1966 when nitro usage had resulted in shorter Hilborn stacks) is said to be one of the first funny cars into the eights, if not the first ever. Jim Thornton drove the car to a great 8.925-150.75 at Cecil County in 1965. The Coronet was feared by many and rightly so. They ran the car into the 1966 season, selling it to Bobby Harrop that year when their new Dart was running. After running most of 1966 and repainting it, Harrop reportedly crashed and destroyed it under the Mike Hammer Enterprises banner. Authority Mike Guffey states this is true. Date and location of accident is not verified. An 8, 19-66 Drag Times suggests this car ran 157.00 mph in 1965 at Detroit. However, when they were selling the car early in 1966, their for sale ad lists the best speed as 150.5 mph. It is possible the times in the resale ad were noted based on the team's 426" package and not the record-setting (and unknown at the time) 472" match race engine hand-built by engineer Tom Hoover.

Notes: This virtually stock, all steel 1965 Barracuda "Funny Car" blazed a winning trail from coast to coast. Weighing in at 3,700 lbs. with direct drive, no transmission, and a Blown Chrysler 392 C.I. 100% Nitro Hemi, "Pandemonium V" achieved 160 mph and 9.78 ET in 1965. This car was built by Sullivan using the engine combination out of his fuel dragster. Photo from 1965 Nationals. It was updated in 1966 with new body panels. It survives, has been cage upgraded for NHRA legal racing, and is owned by Greg Sullivan. Flopper shoe Cory Lee is the pilot when it makes occasional appearances.

Notes: AWB. Charlie Allen ran this car in 1965 through early 1966. This car became Jon Giardina's "Dumbo" 1969-72. 1966 for sale ad says car ran 9.9 at 147. 1971 National Dragster Pro-File says car went 9.67 at 142. Not sure if times were run in 1965 or early 1966. This car apparently survives. if it is legitimate, the Atlantic Dodge Flyer resides in a private collection, and has been restored.

Notes: Bud Faubel's factory success got him one of the factory cars converted by Amblewagon in late 1964-early 1965. He DROVE it in white paint from Detroit to Chambersburg PA upon receipt to break in the driveline for the 1965 race season. Soon after, this car won the AHRA Winter Nationals, becoming the first 'funny car' title holder. Faubel ran the The Honker first on gas, then injected fuel, posting a runner up to Bobby Harrop at the 1965 Super Stock Nationals 'Top Stock Heads Up' eliminator as well. This AWB car was also run in 1966, and was one of 3 factory cars Faubel drove in 1965 - the others were the Ex Owens, Pearson Cotton Picker and a twin-turbo Dodge Experimental. This car survived in remarkably good shape, was found with most of its original paint intact, and is now owned by Mopar parts authority Jim Kramer. The photo shown is likely from Maple Grove Raceway in 1966, and appears classed for NASCAR's Unlimited Stock division.

Notes: This particular car was first built as a 2% relocation for the 1965 Winternationals, where Eckstrand drove it in A/FX class. he also raced it in this form at the 1965 AHRA Winternationals at Beeline Dragway. Converted to full AWB specs soon after by the factory-employed Golden Commandos team members, it toured sparingly compared to some of the other Chrysler factory-authorized AWB entries. However, on August 7, 1965, at York U.S. 30 Dragway, Eckstrand won the legendary Super Stock Nationals 'Unlimited Fuel' class title over Dick Landy's Dodge. The Top Stock Heads-Up crown for the event went Bobby Harrop's Dodge sometime after 3:00 AM in the morning. Eckstrand retired from driving after this event. The car ran low 9's-high 140's in 1965, uncertain if Eckstrand or Dallafior ran those numbers. The car itself was driven by Dallafior and the Commandos team through the end of 1966. It ended up being located by Steve Atwell through a chance acquaintance in the late 1980s, though in dilapidated form. In 2009, collector Mike Guffey completed a restoration begun by the late Dick Towers. Race car restorer Erik Lindberg drove the car to several 60-foot launches in Kearney, Nebraska that year. -- GS | Elton 'Al' Eckstrand passed away after a short illness in 2008.

Notes: Injected fuel. This was the car Bob Harrop received and used for S/S class eliminations at the 1965 Nationals, and began converting to match race trim sometime in late 1965. He may have raced it while doing the engine setback conversion work on his 1965 Amblewagon-built AWB Dodge. That car crashed in its rebuilt debut at Cecil County in the spring of 1966, and Harrop bought the former Ramchargers AWB Dodge to finish the season. According to the magazine caption, fellow Mopar driver Ken Montgomery is driving the car here at Atco late in the '65 season. Disposition of this 1965 A990-code Dodge is unknown. Aditional wheelbase mods are also unknown.

Notes: Car ran injected fuel, gas other times. Bob Harrop was one of the factory-sponsored full-time drivers in the 1965 AWB program. This car was raced extensively on the east coast that year. its main claim to fame was winning the Top Stock Heads Up crown at the Super Stock Nationals on August 7, 1965. Note the sagging rear quarters, a result of acid-dipping the whole body by AeroChem in California before the cars were constructed. Harrop made radical modifications to it during the 1965-66 offseason, including an engine setback, and it was destroyed on its inaugural run in a match race with Eddie Schartman at the 1966 Cecil County season opener. Harrop bought the former Ramchargers AWB to finish off the season.

Notes: Began as Melrose Missle AFX 2% at Pomona 1965 Winternationals driven by Tommy Grove. this was an AeroChem dipped body assembled at Amblewagon. Grove quit to take over a Ford driving job at that race. It was subsquently converted to AWB factory specs and Melrose's Charlie DiBari hired Cecil County Yother as his driver. Car toured nationally with full Plymouth factory sponsorship in 1965. it ran injected by end of season. Yother may have taken full or partial ownership when most factory sponsorships were canceled for 1966. car's top was removed to create a roadster style body in 1966, toured nationally through that year as well. Disposition is believed destroyed but unverified.

Notes: Both Buckel and Jim Thornton drove this car as members of the Ramchargers team. Acid-dipped at AeroChem, it was raced in 2% A/FX form at the 1965 Winternationals, then converted to full AWB status. Ran gas, later fuel, and was the factory test bed for some of the Hilborn injector development. Car is noted for clocking the first 8-second doorslammer time slip at 8.910-148.66 at Cecil County on August 7, 1965 (Thornton driving - 50% fuel, 472" stroker). This was after an accident Buckel had at Detroit Dragway during the team's first attempt at running nitro a weekend prior. That flip crushed the acid-dipped roof and rear quarters. Alexander Brothers rebuilt it quickly, so the car was still in primer during the record-setting run. Buckel could have run better numbers than this, as 150.50 mph in a for sale ad, a 9.83 at 140+ mph at Milan, a 9.36-146.00 at Ubly and a 157.00 at Detroit are all attributed to the car, but driver is not listed. Those were run either by Buckel or Jim Thornton.

Notes: After splitting with fellow 'Dodge Boy' Bill Jenkins for 1965, Dave Strickler got one of the acid-dipped AeroChem cars built by Amblewagon. However, the car was so weak that Stricker had an off-the-record chat with NHRA's Bill Dismuke and almost canceled his program that year. he ran his AA/MP 1964 Dodge at the winter meets as a result. Helped by noted York-based tuner Bill Stiles, the car was strengthened and began touring that spring. Strick ran the car for the season and eventually injected it, but it may not have ever had a substantial fuel load beyond methanol. Strickler returned to Chevrolet when the factory sponsorships were ended for 1966. Car was sold to Chuck McJury. It became 'McJury's Fury' with a 1966 Charger nose and ran through 1967. Found in New York in poor condition by Steve Atwell and Dick Towers. Restored, now in the collection of Nick Smith.

Notes: Factory authorized and financed, Dart wagon recieved mid-mounted 426 Hemi engine using the same Hilborn outfit that had been developed on the Little Red Wagon, with Torqueflite and a 17" wheelbase Extension. Built by Cotton Owens at his shop in Spartanburg. NASCAR shoe David Pearson took a break from the roundy-round action during a factory NASCAR boycott, raced the car for a couple of months until joining U.S.AC's U.S.-Canadan circuit in July. Bud Faubel was given the car at that time, and he drove it as the 'Cotton Picker' that summer, running nitromethane in it for the first time in a match-race with Dick Belfatti's 'rocket fuel' dragster at York. It joined 'The Honker' team in paint late in the season. crew chief George Weiler eventually bought it and ran it through at least 1969. Car survived and is owned by a Maryland collector. (Need to confirm: Trans and whether raced or Exhibition runs only.)

Notes: The is the former Color Me Gone Dodge purchased by Mr. Norm after Dick Branstner lost his factory program in June 1965. This car was dipped at Aero-Chem in late 1964 and ran as a 2% A/FX at Pomona before being converted to full AWB trim at Branstner's shop. Entitled S/FX-II, O'Conner drove it in injected form that summer as shown, notably at the 1965 Super Stock Nationals. Later that year, Norm and Gary Dyer swapped the supercharged driveline out of homebuilt S/FX-I into this body and Dyer drove it to an 8.70 at Ubly in late September and an unreal 8.63 at Lions in October. O'Connor flipped a car per 10-23-65 Drag News and built a Chevy II as a replacement. This was in all estimates the earlier maroon SFX-1 Coronet that Dyer and Krause had built for the start of the year so that Norm would not be racing his own Super Stock customers. A note in Drag World (9-17-65 p. 17) states the drivelines were swapped between the two vehicles. Dyer went 8.98 at Rockford in the car shown the following weekend (DW 9-24-65 p. 3). Its current disposition has not been verified.

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: Second of two 1965 race cars, this A990 car was received by the team in May 1965, raced in S/S at the NHRA Springnationals at Bristol. Dubbed 'Paper Tiger Too,' it was converted into match race trim soon after as the team's efforts and busy schedule allowed. Run primarily on gas, Sox used it as a back-up car or at events where he wanted to drive in two classes. Never acid dipped, it survived largely intact, ended up on the street in Detroit, and was found and saved by Steve Atwell and Mike Guffey. Restored, now in the collector of Todd Werner. Image is of restored car.
