It was a jolly good weekend in old England, and the invitational United States Drag Festival was happening at one of the racetracks there in the closing months of 1964. Among the attendees were the Dodge Boys in an A/FX Dodge, and one of them is warming up the new-for-’64 Hemi in a special, lightweight car. Yep, it’s Bill Jenkins, the Grump himself, who was teamed with Dave Strickler in the factory effort; both racers had come over from Chevrolet after GM banned factory-backed racing activity in 1963. As of this writing, collector Mike Guffy owns the yet-to-be-restored car.
