    One of that car's first outings resulted in a high speed flip. Car acted like a wing and lifted. They then put relief holes in the back somewhere to equal out pressure.

        They also lowered the 2nd car and added a front spoiler. When the car flipped on it’s roof and slid the headliner caught fire, then the car flipped back over and knocked off all 4 wheels, the door was flung open and when the track helpers got there they were greeted by Tom and were in shock to see him ok and smiling....

              It's a mid year 66-67 model. Very rare.

              66 body and bumpers with mods to the rear for 67 lights, and the side of the rear window is painted to give it more of a look like the 67 glass...wonder what the front looked like, pretty ugly imo lol....but changes like that were common!

                This 1966 Car was short lived, I first met Bob in 1993 about the time he debuted his car he built, it didn’t have Hurst on it yet because of licensing. He told us the story how his 66 met its demise...it flipped over at an airstrip and was sliding upside down and backwards, he slammed into a light pole he said it pushed the blower scoop into his the back of his helmet. Later he was stripping the car down to rebuild it, has a junk pile and a keep pile. He hired a young kid to help out at the time and he told the kid to haul the “junk pile” in for scrap and the kid ended up taking all the parts....all the good stuff Bob wanted and needed was gone....that was the end of the 66. Bob was so nice to us kids, let us sit in his car and get pictures, autographs, etc, we hung out all weekend in his pit at BIR in MN that time!

                See how the 1 pic it doesn’t have Hurst in the letter H? It was a nicely done car and fun to watch it run! The 66 is my fav of the Hurst cars but I’m partial to the 66’s
