If it's not copyrighted or you have permission, feel free, the artists like to have fresh mediums to use.

Does make you wonder what would have happened if they went with a production line on these rare rides. Puts me in the mind of the 66/67 Dodge charger.

I noticed the lighter colored one has the altered wheel base. I think there maybe one or two of these rare cars in existence!

Yes i seen that also. They built 3 of these for the race scene they sent them to corvette and the fastback section is all fiberglass. I would like to see one up close and personal

I like the use of the pastels forty, the creamy yellows makes it look real different, nice work on the smoke, I find that the hardest.

BTW, looking closer it is the darker one is more of a stock wheelbase and it's really hitting the tires hard, must have been cool watching it.

Both the light green car and the dark green car are the same car, raced by Alan Green Chevrolet in Seattle,both pics are just one year apart on the racing scene. Car was constantly being updated by the dealership guys racing it as the A/FX and early funny car match race scene took shape. Three of these fastback cars were built, only one still exists, the former CKC Racing team car from Texas. It is currently undergoing a restoration by the current owners in Pennsylvania.

Doors, roof/fastback, front fenders, hood, and front and rear roll pans were all fiberglass. Roof was done on a convertable bare body by the Corvette plant and has a lot of similarity to the 63-67 Corvette when viewed from the rear as the roof tapered to the bumper kind of like the 71-73 Buick Riviera. Cars originally came with 377 stroker Rochester Fuelie engines and 63 style Corvette IRS and were intended for road racing. When they weren't allowed on the road courses due to lack of enough cars produced to meet rules, the cars ended up as drag cars and the suspensions were soon dumped for a regular axle in the rear(IRS sucked for drag racing), and shortly thereafter all three also recieved a straight front axle as was common for the mid '60's.

Soon after I first saw pics of these years ago I felt Chevy really missed the boat not offering it to the public in all-steel form, like the Charger, Marlin, and Torino/Cyclone. Word is by the time these fastback showed up in 1964(they were built by Anahiem Calif dealer Bill Thomas, who tried to get Chevy Corporate to pick them up), Chevy Engineering and the Design Studio already had the Camaro introduction and the '68 Nova restyle underway.

Would love to try to do a resto mod revisit of this car and roof myself someday, but my skills are not quite to that level of fabrication yet.
