This car was built during the winter of 1963-4 by Ed Flemke for owner Ed Ackerman, and driven (as of the time of the photo) by Gene Gamache. Thanks to Robert Clock for the information.
The #1 Nu-Style Pinto owned by Dick Armstong. For a few years in the mid-late ’70s, Nu-Style Racing was probably the most heavily-funded Modified team in existence. During that period, their cars were driven to many victories by Geoff Bodine.
