We have decided to sell our historic altered.
First built around 1960 by Mike Soskin at J & J Muffler in Irwindale.
First piloted by Robert 'Bones' Balogh from '62 to '64.
It was then sold to Bob Lundsfordin Alaska, renamed thr Alaskan Bear. The car reappeared back in California as the Rizzo Bros, Hard Luck Blues Altered.
It was then owned by D J Oneil as the Grape Ape. Then Sparky Horaczko took over and named it Nitro Ape.
I purchased the car in 2010 form Sparky.
I travelled to the USA from New Zealand to run the car at the 2011 March Meet, before shipping the car back to NZ.
I have since raced the car in Australia also.

105 inch Moly chassis, upgraded in 2006 with a Race Car Specialties chassis.
406, with Old school Hiborn stack injection.
Broxid heads.
Car runs easy 8 seconds in the 1/4 mile.
Perfect for NE II class.
Email for more info.. too much to list.

We are moving on to a Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car, so the altered is to go.
Will possibly take a partial trade.

The altered is in New Zealand, but I am able to help with shipping.
Easiest way to communicate would be email
leave a phone number and I can call you
