CE QU'EN DIT LE COMMISSAIRE PRISEUR
  • adjugé $82000
  • 1978 FORD MUSTANG CUSTOM DRAG CAR "DYNO DON" V8 351 AUTOMATIC
  • Summary : Raced by "Dyno Don" Nicholson during the 1977-78 season. Fresh 13:1 351C producing in excess of 650hp. Restored to 1978 season configuration.
  • Description : There have been few drag racers equipped with more versatile skills as a driver and engine builder/tuner than "Dyno Don" Nicholson. He holds the record for final-round appearances in the most NHRA Eliminator categories, scoring either wins or runner-up honors in Funny Car, Pro Stock and Stock Eliminator. The Pro-Stock Mustang here today was raced by Nicholson during the 1977-78 seasons. In addition to dominating the Pro-Stock ranks in the '70's, he also enjoyed numerous match race victories. This car was built for Nicholson by Don Hardy Racecars in Texas. Jon Kaase, famous for huge horsepower race motors, was the crew chief for Don in 1978. At the end of the '78 season the car was sold to Alfred Williams, who campaigned it, sponsored by country music star Billy "Crash" Craddock. This Pro-Stock Mustang has remained on the racetrack its entire life. Throughout it has had NHRA required upgrades to compete in the various classes. These upgrades will allow it to certify for 7 second ET. This will enable the next owner to make very quick exhibition passes. The engine is a fresh 13:1 351C producing in excess of 650hp. The block has been bored .030 and has Ross Racing pistons installed. Naturally it has 4-bolt main caps. The heads are the correct and very rare version with raised exhaust ports. It is fueled by two Holley 1050 CFM Dominator carbs atop a tunnel ram intake. All this power is transferred through a Lenco 4-speed transmission to a Ford 9" rear geared 5.62. The body has been restored to its 1978 season configuration. New front, rear and side windows were installed and a new Hairy Glass front end was special ordered for the car. Hairy Glass made the original nose for Nicholson and still retains the molds. Documented racecars such as this one are the fastest growing investment cars on the market today. Add to that pedigree of this belonging to "Dyno Don" Nicholson and you have a fast, fun, and appreciating piece of automotive history. Many drag strips across the country pay generously for vintage dragsters to show up and make a few passes for the crowd.
