I need to find out who built this. The owner said the roll bar and seat were covered by Tony Nancy ?

Jeff from the first picture it looks to be Tony's mark in the middle.
When you get the car in your possession take a bunch of pictures of it and we'll try to get some history on the car.

Always good to save "History".

Tony I have some other pics I took Sunday. There is so much junk around it. I don't want to cut it up if its a known car.  I bought it to make a competition coupe.

Looks like a neat piece of history. You might want to check the chassis as to current legality. You may find that won't meet any current safety specs. It might be worth more to someone interested in restoring it than what you can salvage from it for your build.

Just my 2 cents. George

Jeff could you send me the pictures you have of the car? Send them and any info you have to jesupercat@yahoo.com
Are there any tags or markings besides the Tony Nancy upholstery. Also what engine if any is with it?

I'll try to help if I can.
John

Is there an SFI tag on it somewhere? If so what number on it.

The deal on the dragster almost didn't happen. But he called Saturday afternoon and we are going thru with it..  Now I might pick it up Monday if he gets out of work early, or defiantly Tuesday.
