This is the car Pete purchased from Regester Chevrolet at the end of the 1964 season. The car was driven in 1964 by Ray Tilley.


This picture was taken at Heston speedway in 1965. Pete was track champion.

By the way to give you a heads up don't buy from DTA Collectibles on e-bay. I purchased pictures from them before with no issue, but the last picture I paid $14.00 for had DTA Collectibles stamped all across the picture. I thought it was an internet image to keep you from making a copy but they destroyed what part of the Lloyd King collection they have. :doh: :ahhh: :ahhh: :ahhhh:

I'll add an agreement on the DTA photos. Many have dates on them and they are wrong. I have many of Lloyd Kings' photos and I have done some comparing. I am not sure who is placing the dates on the photos but some are way off. Steve Bubb
