Great color. These cars got a little extreme with the wheelbase didn't they? Very cool.

Very well built model!

AMT led everyone down the wrong road with this kit, though. Chrisman never ran a car like that! His Comet was one of the first flip body funny cars built by Logghe that year including Dyno Don's car. I guess we will have to file it under the "Phantom" category! :D

According to the current owner of Chrisman's two early cars, Jim Barillaro, Mercury is responsible for making the first successful funny cars. They decided to put funding into the sport of funny car instead of SuperStock like Ford did. Ford was very upset that Mercury was having such success in Funny Car, like Nicholson winning 90% of his match races. Also according to Jim, the cam made by Crane was instrumental in making the horsepower for his blown Fords. Jim takes both of the Chrisman cars to events and does burnouts with them. Very cool.
