Judy Lilly's Original Factory Super Stock 1967 426 Hemi 4 Speed Belvedere

Back in 1966 'Win on Sunday - Sell on Monday' was the way things were. If you wanted to sell more cars you had to get involved in motorsports and win! Chrysler was right in the thick of it with their new 426 Hemi engine which packed the biggest punch of any engine on the market. Dale Reeker, the head of racing development for Chrysler Corporation, was on the hunt for a hot new driver for the upcoming 1967 NHRA season who could make their Hemi-powered Plymouths shine at the drag strip. He went to a Colorado drag strip looking to meet a woman named Judy Lilly whom he'd heard was mopping up the competition with her Fulie 1961 4-speed Corvette. When he approached her she was lying under her car working on the transmission! Dale was there to offer her a Chrysler sponsorship and a brand new Hemi-powered Plymouth to go racing with. Judy accepted and the rest is history!

When Dale returned to the factory he personally supervised the build of Judy's new car, many items being deleted such as the radio, heater, sound deadener, carpet jute backing, and even the liquid rubber sealant in the windshield weather stripping! This car was built in December of 1966 which pre-dated the factory race car program cars, the R0/W0 Plymouth & Dodge SS cars built in the spring of 1967. Nearly everything Dale wanted to be done to the Lilly car was unique and preceded the R0/W0 program cars, accordingly many consider this car to be the R0/W0 'Mule' car since most of the custom details of Judy's cars carried forward and were also done to the program cars later in 1967.
