1968: Travelin' Javelin


The Travelin' Javelin was built with a Fiberglass Trends body on a Ronnie Scrima Chassis. Gary Crane chose the late model 426 Chrysler Hemi for power. Crane and Dale Armstrong both drove the machine; Dale had the best times in the little car with a 7.93, 186.33 in 1968 and a 7.69, 187.88 in 1969. Gary Crane went 8.28 at 192.92 in a Lion's debut in 1968. Crane put the car up for sale and it stayed that way for a couple of years until it was sold to a racer in Canada.
