Drag car?

Here is a 68 coupe that I picked up yesterday. It looks like a drag car that was so slow it was rear ended.
I got a few extra parts with it that included a white sparkplug wire separator and original engine vacuum lines.

Ah, the rare white plug wire separator! I put mine back on the car after reading a thread on here about it a while back.

Marty,
I am not so sure it was a drag car! Looks like a "kneebraski" farm Mustang for planting corn!!

... apparently rear ended by a cow

Yes it got plowed, possibly by a cow. LOL

It makes me laugh every time I look at it. It will be absorbed in to my parts inventory soon.

Anyone need some used tires and rims?
