1969: Fiberglass Trends Javelin


Rusty Dellings had drove a couple of wild match bash funny cars before stepping behind the wheel of this beauty. The Marv Eldridge owned car was the team car to Eldridge's own machine. The car used power from a 1957 Chrysler Hemi. Dellings ran a 7.48, 194 best in the car in 1969 and continued to race the Javelin into 1970. Eldridge ran an 8.22 at 183.24 in the car himself at Detroit in 1970. (Photo by L&M Photos courtesy of Bob Plumer/Drag Race Memories; info from Dennis Doubleday, Bill Duke, and Draglist Files)
