Yes good point, must have been drinking and inhaling that dam racing fuel. I'll straighten that out after I get this car started.

I had no idea,

This guy has many for sale, and 50 bucks seems reasonable.

PS: to get the link to work, just cut the end off and google it.

Default Re: 1969 ss 396 old race car bought it 20 years ago

So I need some help. Once again I'm gonna try and track down some history on this car. I posted ads across the country basically on craigslist looking for anyone that might remember the car. I got a response back from a gentlemen that said the guy that use to race the cars name was Jerry Allen . The email contained the phone number and address for Jerry. The gentlemen that emailed me told me the guys name I bought it from also. He also stated that Dave ( the guy I bought it from) , Jerry ( the guy Dave bought it from) and Clayton ( the guy that emailed me off one of my adds) all still hang out. He also stated that Jerry still races and is a great out going guy. However I have called Jerry three times and left messages on his recorder explaining who I am and what I was looking for. I never got a return call. So I was wondering do I try and send him a letter explaining my intentions with a couple pictures of the car. I'm just looking for any history on the car. Any thoughts or ideas?

I crawled under this old beast yesterday to get the dated code off the center section to try and verify if the rear is possibly original to this car! Well I donít believe it has a date cast into the back passenger side of the center section. The axle tube reads Kf. 0529 F
E
So that stamped date I think reads may 29 correct ? Would the date thatís usually cast into the center be some place else? My other Fremont built chevelle has it cast in the center section.

Thats the rear axle tube stamping. Rear was built May 29th.

KF = 3.55:1 ~ 12-bolt Positraction, large ring gear (L35/396, L34/396, & L78/396)*

The pumpkin will have a casting date code on it.
