NOTE: I am not trying to take credit for these photos of Chevado.

THESE PHOTOS ARE HERE BECAUSE THIS CAR IS AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF DRAG RACING HISTORY IN THE WHEEL STANDER WORLD. The car is currently being restored and is operational and after all safety issues and features have been addressed might even see some track time.

I do ask for any help with giving credit where due on who and when these photos of Chevado in her Glory days were taken.

(NEW UPDATE : Gary Kleckner, former owner of Chevado told me at the Grand National Roadster Show on 1/27/2018 that photographer Don Green took this photo)

The above photo from a scan of an old picture hanging in my garage.

Below is a B&W photo of the last time I saw the car at the track it was about 1981 or ’82 I think , at the INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD RACEWAY on TERMINAL ISLAND near the L.A. harbor. It had no lettering on the side. I took photo with my old ROLLIE ROLLIFLEX 35 MM SLR with a 50 mm lens.…

Partial WHEEL STANDER LIST, don’t know if there are any new cars out there please let me know.
