Notes: 15"Altered Wheelbase, CAE Tube front Axle-15" engine setback-2250 lbs. Full Aluminum Interior. 426 Stage III Wedge, Crane Roller, Hilborn Injection on Fuel, Vertex Magneto. Ran during 1966-67-68 seasons. Ran mainly 1/8 Mile Match Races around Central & Southern Illinois. All chassis & Engine work was performed by the then 25-year-old Mike Gaines in the garage at the rear of his Speed Shop (Mike Gaines Speed Sport, Mattoon Illinois) Crew was David Moberly, Mike Kasey, Gary Coker, Ray Gebhart, Darrell Smiley and Jeff Gaines. Always ran hard but could really never outrun the more powerful Hemis. Gaines' engine was a 426 max Wedge (Hilborns on Fuel). but probably the strongest running "wedge" in the country as no one else even took the time or trouble to run this outdated engine. but as a kid, it was the only motor he owned so I guess he made the best of it. Most notable Match Races were against 1) Ed Ranchanski's ChicagoLand Mercury Dealer Comet Roadster (lost), 2) The Kentucky Colonel 65 Hemi Dodge (lost) and 3) Arnie Beswick's Grocery Getter II Tempest Station Wagon, Injected 421 Pontiac (Gaines won that Match Race). The car was sold to someone in Burlington, Vermont, thru a National Dragster Advertisement in 1968. Whereabouts of the car today is unknown. If anyone has any details on this car that was delivered to Burlington, Vermont, in 1968 please contact Mike Gaines at 559/593, 1977. Gaines lives in California now.
