We have just received the handsome Hemi Under Glass special edition by Highway 61, a Plymouth Barracuda like no other. The Hurst Corporation sponsored a number of exhibition racers during the 60s and none of them were more famous than this one, built and driven by Bob Riggle. The 1500 horsepower 426 Hemi® engine was mounted in the rear of the car to create the feather-light front end and rear weight distribution needed to do endless "wheelies" down the strip. The 727 Torqueflight transmission ran into a marine Casale V drive, then back to a reversed rear differential which was flipped over so the ring and pinion gears ran forward. A Plexiglas panel was mounted into the forewall below the dash, allowing Bob to see the track ahead while riding an eight-foot wheelstand.
Also, we have one SINGLE piece of this one, and will not likely get more. Get it while it lasts!
