Default 1957 Chevy Gasser called "Sweet Cherry"

Hi....I am looking for anyone who might have information or old pictures on a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air 2 dr called Sweet Cherry. It ran the D/gas class in northern Il, Indiana, and Wisconsin and maybe more. Sponsored thru a now defunct speed shop in Chicago in the mid 60's. It was painted red, had red plexiglass windows, a fiberglass rear bumper, and Cragers. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I remember the car, i ran the same tracks in the mid 60's, plus Oswego and Rockford, i think it was high 12's low 13's car in the day, running a 327" motor and a 4 speed. I was running a Blown 1956 T'bird at the time so we were't competing against one another, but there were lot's of gassers running in those days

Zip.
