rendition of Bruce Wheeler's first Washington, D.C.
based AA/Fueler, this diecast "Wheeler Dealer" dragster model is
presented as it appeared in mid-1967 trim. Driven that year by the
lateAl Friedman*, the Dealer was a crowd pleaser wherever it ran.
During his one full season driving the car, Friedman recorded a best ET
of 6.83 seconds. @ 225 MPH while running at strips across the country,
among them the legendary Lions Drag Strip (Long Beach, California) and
Indianapolis Raceway Park. At the end of 1967 Al received Drag Racing
Magazine's inaugural Rookie of the Year award, a well-deserved honor!
learn more about Al, and the history of Bruce's
"career" as a Fuel Dragster team owner, please

*Maryland's "Bub" Reese became the car's second driver, in April, 1968. Later,
in 1969, Bub continued on as the driver of Bruce's all new Wheeler Dealer 2.
WD diecast was a limited edition of 3500 individually numbered
pieces. Each car came packaged in a colorful box that featured period
graphics and an original drawing by National Dragster's John Jodauga.
Brought to you by the folks at 1320 Inc., this model was
