I know for sure that Chuck Stubeck's green NHRA Super Stock Road Runner started life as a 383 car, there was a nice magazine feature article a few years telling about the car.  
 
I've tried to find out data on Art Pacheco's Super Bee but didn't get a reply, not sure if it's the real deal or not.

I know who has the "Contender". I scanned that photo out of the 1980 Muncie Dragway (Indiana) program.
 
The brother of a friend of mine took the Dave Kendall photo in the late '70's/early '80's.  If anyone knows the whereabouts of the car, let me know.

Dave, don't forget this one Wink Raced from the beginning this photo is circa 1975. It was campained by Greg Olson in Minnisota and surrounding area as a SS/E and had his name on the doors eventually. This was still Q5 with lace paint at the time. My favorite photo, I copied this from his 8x10 track photographer picture! Note the obvious tinted glass option Cool

Those are really cool photos Ed. I'd love to have a set of those vintage Keystone Classics. They just look right on an A12 Road Runner.

What about Flypaper's (Frank) car? Wasn't that an original A12 car? I I remember, it still had the track paintjob on it when he had it up for sale.

There the el bandito bee that came colorado area.  I only know what was posted here though.

 
I purchased this car new from West Colfax Dodge in Lakewood CO, saw it on the transport and fell in love. This was No.#3 of the first 5 of these cars delivered in the Rocky Mountain region.
 
Someone asked about original colors, "Bandito" was “Yellow” body as seen in pictures, “White” Bee band stripe, “Black” vinyl top. Put 500 road miles on the new car then changed to 4.56 gears, Cyclone headers and Mallory ignition, never pulled apart other than a few Mickey Mouse tests performed by local tech guys. (Nothing like today with the test equipment, gauges, etc). At old CDR in Colorado Springs CO they put a piece of wire in one spark plug hole – felt no bumps on the piston and declared the car “legal” ??? The car had only 1,210 miles on it when sold, like one of you said it had more drag miles than street miles.
 
Thank you for remembering.
