To get into it was there a roof hatch or did the body flip up?

It looks so good its about time somebody built something similar...

If you look at the big photo, it looks like there is some sort of step just behind the wheel, must have been a pain to get strapped in.

I think this was the best looking car out there and if I ever went long, this is what I would want.

Some shots from the internet of the original Pedregon car and the recreation which his sons Cruz and Tony had built.
Would Nick have been the last one to race this style of car in the UK

No. Pat Cuss was more recent. No one else comes to mind.

Thanks for that Jaytee= Very detailed spec-sheet.
Unanswered questions still remain}
1. Did the car arrive in sweden with its blown SB Ford?
2When was the hemi fitted and did it run in Sweden with the hemi?
3Where is the chassis or body now?

Is this british drag racing's Holy Grail??
