I bought this car a couple of months ago... All I know is it was a late model built in the late 70s early 80s but I can't remember by who... I bought it from the Carlisle area so I imagine it raced at tracks in that region.. the only paint that is helpful on the car is the trunk where you can see a number and sponsor. Any help on identifying this car would be greatly appreciated as I am not from the area and don't know much about the cars that raced back then. I'm looking to hopefully restore it to what it once looked like if I can find pictures if it.. any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for looking!!!

I was a sponsor for this car. This car was actually a Silver Spring Speedway street stock #15. It was driven by Lebanon's Joe Krick. It is a lot newer then you think. This car was raced into the 2000's I believe. Late 90's at the earliest. Owned by a Father & Son from Carlisle or Dillsburg. Last name was Duncan. Sonny Duncan was the father. Big Ford fans. Main sponsor was National Transmissions. They were located in Dillsburg.

I guess information got a little out of hand the more times the car traded hands.. Haha that's pretty neat though that the car raced at silver spring! I figured by the way the cage was built and the mounting points on the suspension are that it could've easily been an old late model.. thanks for the info though! Do you know how the car ran when it raced or where I could find pictures of it? This would be a cool restoration project since the car is too out dated to run in street stocks at the tracks I run at!
