Here is a Hand Painted sign that once hung in the Norwood Fisher Body Plant (obtained the sign from a contractor who was involved in the demolition of the plant in 1987)

The 2nd is a Original Norwood Chevrolet Plant employee badge.

3rd. Body by Fisher Norwood Plant employee badge.

Default Dash Cluster

I wanted to share a photo of the dash cluster decal...I am guessing the speedometer sequence number is exclusive to the 140 speedo

The original owner of this Yenko, Rick Barratt, was a regular in National Dragster Magazine back in the 1970s. This car was even talked about in several issues. Max Gasser (Killer name) was the 2nd owner said he found the car listed forsale in National Dragster when he bought the car. We are currently on the hunt for Rick Barratt's forsale ads in National Dragster. We dont know the exact dates of publication yet but assume Late 1971 early 1972 National Dragster. Anyone have a collection of early 70s National Dragster Magazines please keep a lookout for a forsale ad for the "Motivation" Yenko.
