1962 Golden Lancer
I have been gathering info on the Golden Lancer for about 2 years.
|I've pretty much covered all the bases with the original car.
In 1962, The Drag Masters of Carlsbt California built the Golden Lancer with the help of Mother Mopar. It was raced out west A/FX for a period of about 2 years.
I have all the documents from Hot Rod Magazine, and Motor Sports Magazine. I have also written to the owners of the car but have had no response yet.
||Currently I am running the Golden Lancer, a clone none the less.
The Mopar currently runs N/SS C.
I've worked on this car for the past 3 years. It was billed at the Mopar Nats last year as a "one of one" car.
Update November 2003
The Lancer went 10.17 at 130.2 at Norwalk for the Chrysler Classic. A few improvements this year should bring the car to 10.0's (new converter, less weight). The car weighs in at 3310 with me in it.
I have had this car since 1991.
It just takes time and (money), one step at a time, to reach your goal.
Update October 2004:
The Golden Lancer at the 2004 Chrysler Classic in Pittsburgh, PA.
This Mopar is a great piece of Mopar racing history.
An even greater accomplishment is your bringing the Mopar "back to life" for people to enjoy today!
