This is the Mr. Norm's Grand-Spaulding Dodge Super Challenger Funny Car, the same that raced in 1971 following the notorious string of Dodge Chargers and one of the final machines under Dyer’s able control. Of course, Norm Kraus was more than a car owner, also being the proprietor of the most famous Mopar new car dealership from the supercar era: Grand-Spaulding Dodge in Chicago. Since Norm did not want to race his own customers, his series of professional-grade funny cars began in 1965. Piloted by Dyer nationwide, this showpiece car began with a Romeo Palamides chassis, and it’s still equipped with some of the best speed equipment of the era. The supercharged 426 CI Hemi V-8 engine hosts four-port Hilborn fuel injection and a Bowers magnesium blower, a magneto for spark, chrome valve covers, and Zoomie headers. Since Dyer was busy driving, only an oil pressure gauge was there to tell him what was going on inside the engine; a Moon gas pedal made it go, and a parachute slowed it down from 200 MPH. The body shell is done in blue metal flake, lettered with Norm's Toy, Grand-Spaulding Dodge and sponsorship livery. The tinwork is fitted into the body, and this car has a roll cage, seat upholstery and Crow Enterprizes safety belts. The other detailing is also extensive, with a chrome cover on the Dana differential housing, Halibrand magnesium wheels defined by body-color paint and vintage-style racing tires. Perhaps most importantly, after its retirement, this car was on display at the legendary Grand-Spaulding Dodge showroom for a number of years, a reminder of this incredible racing era. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to become an owner of one of drag racing’s “fabulous floppers” with an important muscle car association.
