#3X JOHN & BARB CLARK, BOUCKVILLE, NY
THIS 1938 PLYMOUTH COUPE WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT BY SONNY SEAMON
AND OWNED BY SMOKEY JOE NORTON OF SIDNEY, NY. IT WAS PILOTED BY
BENNY STEPHENS OF NEWARK VALLEY AT SHANGRI-LA SPEEDWAY IN THE
1970'S AND HAS THE DISTINCTION OF BEING THE LAST ASPHALT MODIFIED
COUPE TO RACE AT THE TRACK COMPETITIVELY. 'OLD NELLE' IS WIDELY
RECOGNIZED WHERE EVER IT APPEARS AND IS THE PRIDE AND JOY OF
JOHN AND BARB CLARK'S GROWING COLLECTION.
Benny Stephens sure knew how to pose with a car, but was no poser on the track.
'Old Nelle" as bought prior to restoration.
