Hi all
Had good luck getting help with my last question decided to try again
What is the designation/name for a rail like this? Hope to build it up in model form and wanted to find addition reference on rails like this. Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks
Chuck

That is a competition coupe.Because it's unblown it would have been either A/C or B/C depending on it's weight and engine size.
these classes were rolled into the dragster classes in late '60s-early '70s and are not current NHRA classes.
