I saw him run that thing at St. Thomas Dragway around 10 or 15 years ago, what a show!!:D

That one won't go cheap, some of drag racing history at it's finest.

Somebody will be a proud owner.

I've had the pleasure to see that thing in action a few times...what a ride.
I can only hope that the person that ends up with it appreciates what he/she has...Long live the Little Red Wagon.:cool::cool:

Was there ever a Ford Econoline Pick Up wheelstander built? A nice 427 SOHC would have been some good competition.
