If you follow this site regularly you have heard of Frank Durso before. He must have a four leaf clover embedded in his hip. He has a real knack for finding and acquiring some very desirable and rare stuff. It all started when he located a rough Talladega and went wild from there. He came across a pair of Boss 429 engines, and a vintage NASCAR front clip just to mention a few items. His goal is to assemble a vintage style Talladega race car. Here is what Frank is working on now and what new find he has made.
Here are a two shots of his NASCAR chassis from the 67 Fairlane John Rosaiti Drove. He is going to use it to make the Talladega Boss 429 project.
Yes it’s still moving forward!!
To date, he has the front hubs and brakes as well as a NOS brass Radiator, 4 H&M rims, a strong 4-speed, but still need a floater rear ! ( anybody got one lying around? If you know of one get in touch with Frank!
The seat belt detractor is out of a helicopter. He is not sure which one but he is sure someone does!
In his message Frank also added a compliment on the web site which we always appreciate. In addition, he stated that he hopes to see everyone this year at the 50th anniversary of the speedway! (He just has to get the car done!)
