Another gasser at the 1968 Detroit Autorama was this sanitary 1965 Chevelle.
Although I preferred the traditional Willys and Anglia gassers, there is no denying the Dennett Brothers B/G Chevelle was a head turner. Built from a 1965 Chevelle, the Psycho was powered by a fuel injected, 440 CI rat motor.
According to Draglist, the Westland, Michigan based Chevelle achieved a best of 10.19 at 135mph, which was hauling for a B/Gas coupe in the late ’60s. I wonder if the Dennett Brothers ever faced off with the Buckpasser Willys that I talked about a few weeks ago. The Buckpasser also ran B/G, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the Dennett gang tangled with the Ohio based Buckpasser at some point.
It appears that the brothers took turns driving the Psycho, as Dennett Brothers is painted on the doors where the driver’s name usually appears.
The team eventually moved on to fuel funny cars, fielding a slippery blown Corvette, also known as Psycho. Ken Dennett was the principle driver for the funny car.
