Car #: #Twenty Two
Driver (s) : Red Coffin

Comments: Comment from Fred:  Red always campaigned clean and detailed race cars. The hood says engine size 350 but the headers are big block ones for sure! This great shot was taken from a temporary photo scaffold erected by Gerard on the "Moody Mile" back shoot heading into the famous narrow turn three, thus the real concentration on the drivers part, you can almost feel the attention given by Red in this shot! Check out the "Stars" on the roof and the number spattered with clay [TWENTY TWO]. Great looking coupe!

03/12/06 Robert Scott Great shot. Like the sheet metal addition on the trunk lid for the fuel quick fill. Back then DIRT still allowed fuel injection and alcohol. Couldn't go the 100 laps without stopping for fuel. Always liked Red's coupes and his spelling out the number on his cars. Remember him mostly using a small block, but also had the big block that he would also use. Like Will Cagle used to have on his hood "427 Sometimes??" applies to Red.
