Rex White before the 1963 Daytona 500

Rex White before the 1963 Daytona 500

The first mystery 427 Chevy engine during test and development at the Desert Proving Grounds in Mesa, Arizona. Although the car in the picture is a 1963 Chevy Impala SS, this picture was made in November of 1962. This car ran in excess of 180 mph during tests for the up-coming 1963 Daytona 500.

The man in the car is Rex White, the 1960 NASCAR Grand National Champion. Standing beside the car is crew chief and engine Louie Clements.
