Jon this is great information and really appreciated. Would be interested in hearing what Anthony Artale has to say. I only have the one pic of the 57. I have several shots of the 64 with both B&H and Western Dodge on the side. I didn't know you were the B&H guy that is cool too. A friend is working on a model of the 64 and will post those pics when he is done. I helped out with the decals for that one.

The 1964 Chevelle diecast in 1/24 is a good one for sure, here is a picture of the 1957 Chevy diecast in 1/64 that Jerry and I were referring to. Did the real car ever look like this? Did it have the numbers on the roof/trunk when it ran with the A1 Motors ion the side?

What were the engine/tire rules for the Cadet class? I see the car has wide-5s but they are not very deep and that suggests maybe a narrow tire. Around the time that this car would have raced Hoosier had a street casing recap with some tread and racing rubber that was available initially in 8 inch width and later in 10 inch width. We ran those on what was a Limited Late Model class with a 327 cubic inch limit.

I wondered about that Jerry and had thought I should be asking you that question. I also was surprised to see a LM car from the wrong decade lumped into the GN set. Not to mention the hardtop on the diecast or the wide-5s on the real car. My digital signpainter has the A1 MOTORS ready for the fender of mine :)

Hey Statsman, don't go by that diecast. I was there at the start the RCCA series and was doing a lot of the research for them back then, until one of the partners decided that since they had aquirred so many pics that they could do it themselves. That group of "experts" lead to a few "not so accurate interpretations" that included Niel's 's '57 being included with the Grand National '57 Chevy group. It's a sore spot that rankles still today. I guess they relaxed the "over 21" rule for Neal to run the '57-'59 (years of the '57's Grand National eligiblity) seasons. LOL

I agree Jon and that is why I need to build models of those white and black #1 cars :)

Like this 57 Chevy Sedan.


Looks like the above photo has a replaced left front fender or possibly hood and fender. It kind of looks like there might be an engine size painted on the hood though but it could just be reflection. There is a 1/64 diecast of this car that shows a number on the roof and the quarter panel sponsor is B&H Motors like the early days of the 64 Chevelle.
