The "Vankee and Abraham" 1963 Plymouth

Here is a picture of my brother Mark's 63 Plymouth. This car is the original "Vankee and Abraham" 1966 NHRA A/SA national record holder!
Talk about a survivor!
My dad and brothers found this car a few years back in a barn in Akron, Ohio. After a few months of bartering they purchased the car for $600. They took the car and hid it from my mother in my Grandmother's garage.

The car is being totally restored: new doors,fenders 1/4s etc. Mark bought a 446 of mine 12:5:1, forged rods, pistons, crank. Closed chamber heads, 533" lift cam 308 duration. 8" torque converter and manual shift torqueflight, 8 3/4, 4:56's AND a 1963 cross-ram to top it off.
We'll look forward to again seeing the '63 on the track!
