This is the 1965 Dodge Coronet 426 Fuel Injected Hemi A-FX Funny Car of Bud Faubel. The car was called The Honker.
Within this time frame, AHRA made one more important contribution. As some may know, the ‘65 AHRA Winter Nationals at Beeline marked the debut of the altered wheelbase factory experimental cars. It was at this race that these cars with the front ends aluminized and the rear wheels moved forward two inches were referred to as “Funny Cars.” They had their own eliminator and produced one of the most historically important races of all time. Bud Faubel qualified #2 at that race running 10.84 with The Honker.
This is a hand built 1/25 scale model of this famous altered wheelbase Dodge. A great piece for your vintage drag racing collection.
