Fellas,

 

 I'm looking for info on two local (New Jersey area) drag cars from the early/mid 1960's...first one is1958 Impala shown here at OLD BRIDGE Stadium back in the day. The car ran a 409 for power...

 

The second one is a 1940 FORD coupe shown here at Madison Township Raceway Park opening day , August 1965.

The car ran a small block Chevy with Hilborn fuel injection, a 4-speed and an Olds rear. The car was later repainted white and ran under the name of "RIGHTEOUS 1"...any info especially photos would be greatly appreciated !

Folks,

 

 A correction on the blue '40 Ford drag car, it was the white "RIGHTEOUS I" before being painted blue...
