Coupe
In the winter of 1967 a young Chevrolet racing enthusiast from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania contacted the Logghe Brothers about building a state of the art Camaro Flip Top Funny Car. Bruce Larson was sponsored by Sutliff Chevrolet, and as he had successfully campaigned Chevrolet powered race cars, he was committed to being competitive in the world of Flip Top Funny Car racing.

The USA-1 was the result of the efforts of the Logghe Brothers, Bruce Larson, and Al Bergler who handled the body mounting and tin work. It soon became one of the most notable funny cars in the world, with its easily recognizable red, white and blue paint scheme with gold stars.

In the initial year of campaigning the USA-1, Bruce managed to win numerous prestigious events. This Camaro was one of the first flip top funny cars to reach 200 miles per hour with elapsed times in the 7.4 second range. It is powered by a nitro methane burning supercharged and fuel injected 427 cubic inch Chevrolet engine.

Restoration began in 1996 and this historic race vehicle was match raced thru out the United States for an additional six years.

The USA-1 is the original race car from 1968 and it includes its original Logghe Stage One chassis and Camaro body.
