All items on this motor are correct as stated by NHRA,all casting numbers and part numbers are as they should be for a stock class drag car. which is rare to find some 40 yrs later. Jim Lamatrice was the owner,driver and mechanic of this car pretty much from day one. car was raced from 1957-1970,in that time it acquired many wins,trophy's,awards and stories in the Drag news magazine,included with the car are,photos,Drag news clippings,original time slips,pit passes,old racing jacket,National record holder certificate issued in 1965 and signed by Doris Herbert,winning trophy from Pomona Winternationals 1970,Hot Rod magazine year end pictorial from 1969 with car in it,1970 Hooker Header advertisement with car listed in it as class winner,award from Lions drag way and much more.

Restoration was completed about 2 yrs and 1500 miles ago.This car has won some shows,and has been documented by James Lamatrice himself and a few early racers from the era of which it has raced. its extremely rare to find a 55-56-57 Chevrolet that has survived as a stock class race car,with its original drive train intact most were just cut up and made into Gasser's to compete in the ever changing class's back in the 60's.
