Mickey Thompson's Challenger I made its FIRST appearance on the salt in the UN-BLOWN state, WITHOUT THE MASSIVE SCOOPS. It had almost entirely different bodywork, and differently configured engines, of course.
I'm still looking for any shots of the details of the timing covers, water pumps and plumbing and the fuel injection of the Challenger I LSR car, in its UNBLOWN, 1959 iteration. I've got enough to fake most of the car, as well as another batch of photos forwarded by another member (with some much appreciated new info), but I'm still lacking clear timing cover shots. The injection appears to be cast-alloy Hilborn manifolds with staggered intake trumpets / velocity stacks, but I can't really make out the injection plumbing or FI pumps. Can't see the valley covers used, either.
I've already done a pretty thorough web search...kinda hoping someone might have some un-published snaps in their private stash.
If anyone just KNOWS what front covers, FI pump drives and water pumps were actually on the UNBLOWN car, that would also be very helpful.
