Default Fastest FullBodied N/A Nailhead?

My buddy Bob Quigg's 1966 Gran Sport ran a 10.86 at Cecil a couple weeks ago. Do any of you guys know of a faster time?

Plus this is a 4 speed car so he was rowing like a MF'er.

He bought that car new. Been racing it over 40 years. It hit the wall at Lebanon 2 months ago and had a nice stripe down the whole passenger side.

They used these motors a lot in the 60's for rails and dragsters because they're narrow. Tommy Ivo's 2 engine and 4 engine cars had them. The Air Force also used them for the starter carts for the SR-71 Blackbirds.
