Greg Sullivan, Albequrue, NM
'65/'66 Pandemonium Barracuda
Vehicle: Original restored.
Original owner: Bob Sullivan, Kansas City, Kansas
While the altered-wheelbase machinery was certainly in the limelight during early 1965, making waves out of Kansas City was Bob Sullivan, who swapped the 392-inch blown nitro engine out of his dragster into a Barracuda and then wowed the fans at Indy that year. This car, which was updated in 1966, has survived and is presently being restored by Greg Sullivan (no relation to Bob Sullivan) of Albequrque, New Mexico. Plans are to return the car to full race status, including a blown late-model Hemi on fuel. Greg has owned it for a little over a year, and has it at Gary Hansen Racing Cars in Pomona, California, being restored. Ralph Suman, who was involved with the original project, is also involved in making this project complete.
