The Anaconda Top Fuel Dragster will be in Tucson!



One of the most beautifully restored Top Fuel dragsters in the country is coming to the Tucson Dragway Reunion on May 17, 2014.

In the mid 1960’s Marvin Schwartz went to work at the shop of drag racing legend Don Garlits building chassis, tuning motors, and later driving a dragster for Garlits. In 1967, Marvin received the financial backing (rumored to be Chicago Mafia money) needed to build the Anaconda. Schwartz reworked a Garlits chassis and took it to master fabricator Tom Hanna who created the swoopy aluminum body with the serpent nose piece and full tail section. Painter to the stars of drag racing George Cerny applied the dazzling finish and Tom Kelly did the lettering and striping. The car successfully competed around the United States at many events. Bob Frey, the long-time NHRA National event announcer, has described “Starvin’ Marvin’s” dragster as “one of the most beautiful dragsters ever made.”

In 2006 Schwartz’s widow, Christina, gave permission to Bob Hirsch to restore one of the Anaconda chassis and to recreate the body. Hirsch did extensive research to be able to properly bring the car back to its previous glory. Master craftsmen from many disciplines in drag racing participated in the project to recreate the Anaconda including Tom Kelly who reapplied his original lettering and striping (with the addition of the eye on the nose).

Make sure to attend the Tucson Dragway Reunion and check out the amazing restoration of a truly beautiful 1960’s Top Fuel dragster…the Anaconda.
