Maverick raced two cars in 1964. The season started with a 64 light weight Dodge 426 Max-Wedge, in June Maverick received the Hemi car and finished the season. He then took procession of the Little Red at the end of 64 and begin exhibition runs with the wheelie truck and the rest, as they say, is history.
All parts in this restoration are correct date coded. Larry Shepard of Ohio built the engine and transmission (which is a correct 1964 hemi transmission), Many parts are from Kramer in Penn, Hemi Eddie in Wis, bright work is from Bill Petro at Special Ts in Chicago, the body and paint is by Premier Auto in Buffalo, Mo (same guys who did Jim McCauley's black Daytona you mentioned) and technical support from Jim Schild. The 64 is owned by Doctor Terry Winkler, Guest appearance by Bill "Maverick " Golden at 2011 MATS-The Moparty at the Strip. Restored Car will be unveiled at this years event.

Bill Maverick Golden's 1964 Hemi Dodge Super Stocker is featured in the October 2011 issue of
MOPAR ACTION magazine.
The article begins on page 72, runs to page 76.

Using correct date coded-parts Larry Shepard built the 720 horsepower Hemi for the restoration.
As the 1964 and 1965 426 Hemis were the factory race engines this definitely puts the actual output
of these engines in perspective.
