Meet a Scotty Fenn-built '56-'57 Chassis Research TE 440 dragster fitted with a Hillborn-injected 389 Pontiac engine. The dragster had a flathead when raced by the original purchaser but got the Pontiac engine when Mickey Thompson bought it. After Mickey's death, the dragster came into the possession of one of his coworkers. Currently, Mark and Beckie West of Scottsdale, Arizona, own the dragster after finding it in a SoCal garage in 2003, where it had been stored for over 10 years. The rare SR84938 (SR for Special Research) 389 engine is scheduled to be rebuilt by the man who assembled it originally, Fritz Voit, as part of a planned restoration.
