Calling all racing enthusiasts!
This original as-ran funny car holds the significant distinction as the last funny car to be campaigned by legendary drag racer and team owner Don The Snake Prudhomme. Driven by Snake Racing driver Tommy Johnson Jr. in National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) competition during the 2007 season, the Impala was the last race car in professional motorsports to feature Skoal-branded tobacco sponsorship. Snake Racing"s relationship with U.S. Tobacco Company was one of the most successful and lengthy marketing partnerships in motorsports history, spanning 23 years. Chevrolet, as a manufacturer, strategically selected Snake Racing as the team of choice to help debut the first-ever Chevy Impala SS body, which first took to the drag strip at the 2007 NHRA Winternationals at Pomona, California. Later that season, the Impala would record two No. 1 qualifier efforts (Englishtown, New Jersey, and Richmond, Virginia) and race to the winner"s circle at the historic NHRA SuperNationals in Englishtown. The Impala, paired with Prudhomme"s Top Fuel dragster, were both category winners of the SuperNationals and marked the fourth time that Snake Racing recorded an elusive double-up victory.
Originally purchased for $101,200.00. The car is signed by the owner and driver and comes with the memorabilia and racing shirt pictured above. In fantastic condition!
