I wonder if that Lambeck car has a narrowed axle and tubs?
Hard to tell. Possibly the 52.5" axel. Slightly shorter than the B-Dana. Not the 44.5" axel since wheels have a lot of backspacing. Definitely leaf springs moved in to the frame rails. Probably also wheel wells moved in to frame, since the tires are so close to the leaf springs.
That was my initial impression also. Thanks for the reply.
LO23 car of Jim Wick and Jim Jezwinski. It had a couple different paint jobs. Not sure if they bought it new ?
After a disappointing first round loss at the Dodge Nationals at Maple Grove, Chuck and Steve Comella get a win at their local track in their LO23 car on the way home. This weekend, as defending champs, the Comellas are in the delayed final at the Dutch Classic shootout with their four speed Barracuda. Photo from the Comella Racing Facebook page. UPDATE: Steve spun the tires, and lost to the seemingly unstoppable Jimmy Daniels, who ran 8.415 @ 155.90.
I worked for Jezwinski and crewed for him and Wick off and on for a few years. Jezwinski owned this car. He bought it from another racer in the area. I think I remember his name but I'm not sure so I won't say. I can, however, tell you it was called the "Hemi a Go-Go" when he purchased it.
The original cars only had the side marker light on the quarter-not the fender.
Steve Comella breaks out in his LO23 Dart, and loses in the S/S final at last weekend's NHRA Virginia Nationals.
Mickey Weise Hemi Dart!
Original owner Chuck Comella with his son Steve, driver, won the Division 1 bracket race, err, Super Stock championship at Cecil County today. They run a non-B029 Barracuda stick car in the Hemi Challenges.
^^Amazing that some of this stuff survives after all these years. After all, these ain't daily drivers LOL
It's been a VERY long time since I've been on this site & thrilled that there's an explicit LO23 thread started since, as some may know, I've built three clones and enjoyed every one. Which is kind of why I'm here. My present car I just can't seem to keep cool enough for street use so I'm looking for suggestions(pm me as it's too long a story if you'd like to help) . But the other reason is relatively simple. It's been some time since I've done any real mods to the car & I'm thinking of some front-end improvements. Anyone familiar with "Gerst" suspensions? I've viewed the website and it all seems good but I'd really like to hear from someone that's actually used his stuff. I suppose I could ask him but my suspicion is I'd only get referenced to people who had no complaints/issues with the stuff & I know nothing is ever as simple as it seems...…...Sooooo anyone know anything about them?
Wow guys I'd think someone would have answered this man already.... Hopefully someone will now. MAPS PS Waiting for info for my interest as well...
My Hemi Dart in 1969...
AWESOME... What's even more phenomenal is that the majority of members most probably were not even born before that year.. You have to love those years, even though I was a kid and my fist car in the mid eighties was a7o Cuda 440 six pack shaker car, which by today's muscle car extreme hp don't even compare the fun we had with this cars will never be repeated. Thanks for the memories.. MAPS Today's toy..
That must have sucked.
To some degree but in all fairness to my pocket I was a fool to let this car go (early 90 s) 30,000 miles on it, 4 speed, Electric windows Tilt 6 way seats, Shaker car, Rear window louvers with Trunk lid spoiler. Light package,map light etc. Front rear speakers,rear debugger, Only option missing was the Hemi and high impact colour (original B5) I could have had good money for it today... "Oh well...That's life" But I still love my lil A body now...
