A cracking and very rare colour shot of the stunning Herridge and Beadle Brothers “Motivation” sitting alongside John Harrison’s Jynx.
Built in 1968 to NHRA Junior Fueller specs and fitted with a state of the art 138 inch chassis that had been fitted with a nitro injected 301 Chevy.
The Chevy had power-pack heads, Chet Herbert cam kit, Hilborn injection set for 40% nitro, Jahns forged pistons, Grant rings and Mr Gasket roller rockers.
Allan won the 1968 championship with this car and run the first nine second junior pass outside the USA.
