This is an original BO29 Hemi Cuda . One of Fifty Factory Race Cars produced by Chrysler Racing. 50 Cudas and 50 Darts were sent to George Hurst to be converted into a Competative Drag Racing Car. All necessary hardware (door crank, window mechanism) were discarded. Some metal parts were acid dipped to reduce weight . Fixed rear windows, front window straps, 1/8 cemicore ultralight glass was installed. Racing modificatons were made wherever possible. Racing weight of less than 3,000 lbs. That was the goal of Hurst Chrysler effort.

This Hemi was purchased NEW in 1968 by James A Thomas & Milton Updyke of Tyrone Pa. In 1970 Samual S Pannuty of Baltimore Md., bought it and sold it to two brothers that raced it as an A Modified. Sam then traded another car to the brothers and got the Hemi back, then traded it to a Bill Mc Closkey for a '65 Plymouth. Sam then bought the Hemi back from Bill McCloskey. In 1973 it went to Sox & Martin for the motor and Chick De Nino for the cage and suspension. In 1976 the Hemi was sold to Bob Kaiser. Clayton B. Wright bought the Hemi in 1977 and has owened it ever since.
