Beebe & Mulligan 1968

 

 


John Mulligan and Tim Beebe in late 1968 when they took delivery of their new Woody car - not having a clue it would be their last together.

 

 


For its debut the car was loaded up and taken to Tulsa, OK for the NHRA World Finals.

 

 


In spite of a tricky track, Mulligan waded his way though the 32 car field and was runner up to Bennie Osborn after losing a clutch in the finals. Another bridesmaid outing in spite of setting low ET and Top Speed of the meet.

 

 


 


After Tulsa they returned to Orange County International Raceway. Note Gary Cochran (far left) and Wes Cerny behind the blower scoop.

 

 


 


John Mulligan at a Saturday race at Lions Drag Strip in Long Beach, CA (late 1968). This is believed to be the last outing before the winter break.
