Coup coupe

Competition Coupe.



When you couldn’t hang in the rail classes, so you find a cheap, lightweight, small body to slap on top of your rail and VOILA! Comp Coupe!



So many different designs, engines, and body’s.



Robert J Palmer, on Jalopy Journal shared these pictures of his 1959 NHRA Rule book.



What an awesome piece of history!



You have to love all of the different body’s these old guys ran.



Metropolitan anyone?



More!



More!!



And a few more.



And this last Gem, the “Silver Bullet” built by Stan Johnson. Stay tuned for a future write up on this beautiful machine!



Tradition Over Trend.
