    ... With Direct Drive as I recall (triple-slipper?).

    Thorley was a cool Dude. Or so it seems ( never met the guy ). This was running when I was 14-ish.

    Engine pictured is the Chrysler 392.

    From NHRA:

    "Reath Automotive’s Gary Slusser was tapped to work on the engine, which AMC first demanded be based on their 390 wedge, but when that engine proved underpowered, they later converted to 392 Chrysler power. A dragster-style B&M Torkmaster automatic transmission was used."

    Thanks
