I think the interior is very street rod and conflicts with the exterior gasser theme. Wish it had a 60's style interior. Still cool though.

Is that placement seats dangerous relative to the location of the roll cage hoop? It seems like it would be, that the seats are too far back.

Never understood why people can't take decent (non-blurry) pics, especially when they want that much for something.

Half of the pics of the engine and interior are garbage!

it sure looks like a forehead banger to me. helmet on or not.
and as was said, the interior is nice, but does not fit the theme of the car.

Yes. Pretty unique for its time, surprised to see such a similar 4-door gasser. I kinda like the rear on the '37 more than the "humpback" of the '40-'41.

I was young, but remember seeing that car when my father raced his funnycar there. Best of times!

Any pics of your dad's car? I pretty much lived at Sac Raceway from '65- early seventies.

Here is a picture from its first run at Sacramento before it was lettered. This was 1967.
