Description

Lot #1069 - Factory A12, lift-off hood, 440 Six Pack. One of 388 factory 4-speed cars produced and one of the most correct muscle car era NHRA record holders in existence, Project Six Pack. Campaigned from 1970-1975 by Struse, Smith and Welsh. The story of Project Six Pack was documented in the pages of Super Stock magazine for more than seven years. In total, articles surrounding Project Six Pack appeared in more than 77 magazines through 2002. A 3-time NHRA class record holder, Project Six Pack is one of the most authentic restored SS/A in the world, retaining most of its original sheet metal, original glass, original record setting engine, restored Fenton Gyro wheels, Stahl mechanical tachometer and DANA 60 axle. True #1 quality restoration by Best of Show Automotive, the attention to detail on this restored muscle car era drag racer is nothing short of astonishing, from the original Hooker headers, to the painstakingly reproduced lace paint, to the original windshield wipers lying in the trunk, banded together with duct tape. With the help of the original owner of Project Six Pack, this restored NHRA record holder sets the standard for authenticity for a car of this kind. Project Six Pack was unveiled at the 2009 Carlisle All Chryslers National, at a special event attended by the "who's who" of the 1960s and 1970s drag racing world, including former Super Stock editor Jim McGraw, Ted Struse, Terry Welsh, Bob Karakashian, John Wehrley, Herb McCandless, Al Adams, Tom Hoover and Tom Coddington. All of these gentlemen were kind enough to sign the deck-lid of Project Six Pack. Project Six Pack is a significant piece of muscle car history and is being sold with all original Super Stock magazine articles, original dealer invoice, original finance papers, original shipping papers and much more. The car also retains its original body numbers and Fender Tag. There has also been a die-cast model made if it. With the addition of street tires and exhaust this car can be street driven. An extremely rare opportunity.
