"Old Reliable" Chevy

Recommended Posts

Dave Strickler drove Chevys in the '60s for the Ammon Smith Auto Co.

Previously, I built the '69 Camaro campaigned in SS/C. That inspired me to acquire the kit of the '62 409 Bel Air.

Strickler won the SS/S class at the '62 Nationals, beating Hayden Proffitt, who won Top Stock Eliminator the next day.

This is the AMT kit built OOB.

4-speed, dual quad, Posi Traction 409!

This is how they ran in the SS/S final. I built the Proffitt 409 many years ago.

Smith/Strickler "Old Reliable" from '62 and '69. So much development in seven years!

The thought had crossed my mind after reading about it in the Super Stock book. The decal sheet I got from Mike's has white decals for this car.

Thanks for the inspiration.
