1978 Original Don Gerardot Corvette Funny Car
Don Gerardot ran this car in 1978 thru 1979, he ran a blown alky hemi in the BB/FC class and NHRA pro comp class.
The car then sat for over 20 years. A new owner purchased the car and ran it with the Great Lakes Nostalgia Funny Car Association for nearly 5 years.
The chassis, body, and paint are original and in great condition. The only cosmetic modifications are lower body skirts and 20% restoration on the paint. The new owner installed a 468 BBC injected alcohol with an Enderly Hat and a turbo 400 3 speed trans. The reason for injection and not blown were mods would have to be added such as dual chutes, front brakes and dual fire bottles to name a few which were not required in 1978.
As mentioned before, the previous owner is willing to sell and install the engine and trans to make it turn key, including a self starting system. The roller includes: custom headers for a BBC, the original hemi eng plate, everything included,hoses and connections minus engine and trans to run.
The car is exceptionally good looking, a "one of a kind" Corvette. All wheel wells were originally altered by Don Gerardot and his wife, thus giving the car a radical custom appearance.
Don Gerardot, is a NHRA World Champion, US Nationals Winner and three time Popular Hot Rodding Championship Winner plus more. "Original" 1970's Funny Cars with history are hard to come by, especially in this condition.
