One of the most legendary and humble drag racers “Dyno” Don Nicholson passed away on January 24, 2006, but his legacy lives. This 1964 Mercury Comet is a clone built by Fast Freddy Henderson and the 422 Motorsports team who campaigned “Mid-Sixties Ford” factory race cars.
Obviously the 1964 Mercury Comet is a lot faster than the one Dyno Don raced. It is a well dialed in and consistent bracket car, but still brings back memories from those glorous days. I am not sure who owns it now as the action was filmed few years ago, and I heard it was for sale.
