Now for my favorite test. The dudes from Modern Rod took a brand new F-85
442 to the drag strip to see what they could get out of it. This is the exact car I
want. This car was a very rare F85 series 442. One of 736 ever made in that
body style with 4 speed transmission. The car had zero body side chrome, no
window frame chrome, and no chrome rear panel between the tail lights. On
top of being a radio delete car, it was also a heater delete. I have yet to see a
65 heater delete car besides this one. And I have yet to see that plate that
covers the heater/vent control hole in the dash. To top off the racer theme the
car had the offset rally stripe applied. This was a purpose built factory hot rod.
It was also a Fremont built car by the presense of a PVC valve on the
passenger valve cover.
