hemicopAs I understand it, the S&K Dart may have gone to Ronnie Lyles back then who street raced it with some very good success. The "Manhattan Speed Shop"' car was allegedly stolen & may have wound up somewhere out West according to some factory people. Back then there were 2 LO23 darts on L.I.---S&K's car & IIRC one from Speedwin Automotive which I was told was sold through Rockville Centre Dodge. But doorslammer racing was so prevelant back then a Hemi A-body wasn't too uncommon.
Is this the same Lloyd McVey who had the Super Banana pulling tractor?My friend Larry McVey''s Father bought this HEMI Dart new. He called it the Invader after his favorite Show, My Favorite Martian.............

Those were the good old days of pullingYes, Lloyd built the Super Banana and used the 68 HEMI Dart Engine for power. He passed a few years ago here in Naples Fl and he is in the tractor pulling Hall of Fame.View attachment 1715057279
Correct on the Bryan Higgans S&K Dart.
I currently own the Manhattan Speed Parts Hemi Dart and have been trying to trace its history. As far as I know it never left the New York area basically from 1968 till sometime in the late 80s when Tim Hennessey sold it to Roald Anderson.
Original owner was reportedly a Pete Marzec who raced it in the Long Island area for a couple years.After that I lose track of it till Lou Vignognia purchased it in the late 70s.
If you can fill in some blanks or help me out with some of this cars history I sure would appreciate it.
