1962 Chrysler Hemi Roadster
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While attending one of the most prestigious Classic Car Shows on Long Island, New York at Morgan Park, New York located in Glen Cove, New York on the north shore of Long Island right on the water, I came across this mint conditioned 1962 Chrysler Hemi Roadster which set NHRA Racing Records in 1963, 1964 and 1966. This top fuel dragster was owned and driven by George Snizek who happened to be at the show and who I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him about his fantastic roadster. This car was built very compact with the large mag wheels on the rear and the spoke smaller front tires in the front, with the exhaust pipes (4) on each side of the car's frames. Nicknamed the Tasmanian Devil for it's speed and ability to intimidate other drivers. This car before being retired set over 150 records. Pacers Auto was a popular, record-setting drag racing team in the early 1950s and 1960s.
Based in Oceanside, New York on Long Island, The Pacers' "Snizek & Dodge Racing Team" made up of co-owners,George Snizek, as driver, and Charlie Dodge (1931�2002) as tuner, were favored by fans and feared by competitors. They always delighted fans with their quarter mile tire-smoking performances from their stout Tasmanian Devil, a Chrysler Hemi-powered 23T Altered Roadster, which set numerous track, class and speed records across the AA/A, CC/FD, AA/FA & A/FD classes.
Pacers Auto, Inc. was a founding member of the CARS Magazine Racing Team campaigning the Tasmanian Devil both on gas and fuel, as well as, The Pacers Auto "CARS Magazine Special" Top Fuel dragster. They also served as Official Road Test Consultants for Hi-Performance CARS magazine and Speed & Custom magazine and could be seen in many articles in both. They were the east coast distributors of Nitromethane and Methanol (aka Nitro-Alky) racing fuel.
