Mock up of phoenix arrows
The rear for the down tube car is still being cleaned up
These cars where raced in vegas , Arizona and have racing nuances which are always interesting, the last quickdraw that i redid was the same raced out west

Dont know much about that one, it is different from my two arrows, big maestro knows a lot about these cars ,not many made! ask him. The two recent ones i have came from vegas and where raced out there, with input from the phoenix guys.

There were some copies of the arrow cars made after they quit racing. The arrows were all tig welded. There are a few things on the car that look out of place. But it could have been someone just changed things out. I will get Jerry to look at the pic and see if anything stands out to him about the car.
