Muscle Cars For Sale -
Atlas Muscle Cars is proud to offer for sale this piece of race history, its the 1967 Factory Hemi Coronet Race car, raced by Butch Leal the "California Flash" Butch Leal is one of drag racing history’s most prolific door car racers. From the early 1960s to the late 1980s, he was a winner in Pro Stock, Modified, and Super Stock. He was the last guy to win a Pro Stock event with a “real” factory Hemi engine in 1973, and his last NHRA event win came in 1987 at the Gatornationals. Only 55 of the cars were produced and of those 55, only 16 had four speed manual transmissions as this one does. If you are worried about it being a fake, don’t be. Both Galen Govier and Butch have signed and authenticated the car. The good news is that this Coronet has never been cut in any form. No tubs, no cage, no nuthin’! Basically this is a perfect example of a ultra-rare factory racer that was owned and campaigned by one of the best drivers in the history of doorslammer drag racing.
