Sometimes old race cars refuse to go away. Whilst looking for something to restore and race, lifelong drag racing fan Keith Pilling (no relation to Kevin) came across the ex-Dennis Priddle Monza funny car chassis. I spent quite a while with Keith trying to track down the full history of the car and we encountered a few strange coincidences on the way. Dennis built 2 chassis for the Monza and somehow chassis two ended up in the same place as the body that was mounted on chassis one. That was confusing.
The car is now reborn, looking fabulous and is destined for the Wild Bunch drag racing class this season hopefully
Keith has written a very detailed, interesting and well constructed article on the whole process and I’m pleased to be able to share this with you on UKDRN.
If you can add anything to the history then please contact me.
