The 1960s was a glorious time for drag racing in the USA. Manufacturers began to put high performance muscle cars into the showrooms and even hotter versions through the back doors of selected dealerships.
To cater for these factory-supported cars that were reserved for the top throttle jockeys of the day, the NHRA introduced the FX (Factory Experimental) class in 1962. By 1965, some of these factory and privateer purpose-built FX vehicles featured changed wheelbases, fuel injection and superchargers - configurations not even an infinite amount of rationalization could justify as ‘Stock’ or even ‘Super Stock.’
This 1965 Coronet dubbed 'Gold Rush' is sure to please. While it's not a period used strip car, it has been meticulously crafted as a 60's era tribute.
