Neat.  Can anyone positively ID?  The hood and headlights appear the same as my Skyhawk, but the grille is different.  By 1979, they’d gone to single square headlights.  I haven’t looked just yet.

A friend of mine from a small town in Central Kansas just acquired this as well as a  1963 Riviera to tow it.

 

Now, that's a picture I want to see!  ;)

The Riviera has a back story to it as well.  Rex bought it from Joe who also lives in central Kansas. The 63 Riviera is Bronze Mist with Saddle leather, pretty much fully equipped.  I tried and tried to get Joe to write the back story and submit it to the Riview but he never did.  The back story on the 63 is that it was John Hadl's signing bonus when he signed with the San Diego Chargers back in 1963. 

 

Rex told me that I can be part of his pit crew next summer when he starts running it.  He has his NHRA license but needs a fire suit and wants some experience with Nitro-methane before he put his foot into it. 😁

Popping a Wheelie can be a fun thing - until it isn't.

Then Total loss of traction while airborne would be one of those "Oh-$h++" moments.

 

Kind of reminds me of my misspent youth, and the time friends and I dropped a 401 Buick into a substantially modified Henry-J.

Lack of a Locker Rear really hurt us at Old Bridge (NJ) 1/8 mile dragstrip.
