Coupe
As the end of the 1966 Funny Car racing season closed out, a new type of Flip Top Funny Car chassis began to emerge. Due to racing mishaps experienced during the 1966 season, the Logghe Brothers saw a need to design a new style of chassis (Stage 2) that addressed driver safety as paramount to the sport. The roll cage was made tighter and closer to the driver, and the seat and safety belt mounting points were addressed.

Originally Doug Thorley would campaign two Chevrolet Corvairs on the Funny Car circuit. Both were very successful and won many historic races, including the 1967 NHRA U.S. Nationals. The original 67' Corvair was the first to surpass 200 miles per hour in the quarter mile with its nitro methane burning 427 cubic inch Chevrolet engine, which in 1967 was unheard of.

An original Logghe Stage 2 chassis along with an untouched Fiberglass Trends Corvair body was used to faithfully replicate the Doug's Headers historic Corvair Funny Car.

The Doug's Headers Corvair represents a time period in Flip Top Funny Car racing when body styles of all types raced in this wild and wooly category. The body shapes had not yet experienced the aero designs that were yet to come, and as such, the Corvair is easily recognizable.
