that the 'Black Arrow' did not have any mention of Doc Burgess while racing out on the
west coast in January/February 1965.
Bill Jenkins name lettered above 'Black Arrow'
'Grumpy lettered on the door panels.
'Speidels Speed Shop' lettered on the rear quarter-panels
'Stahl Headers' lettered on the front fenders.
Mechanics names listed;
Also, ColdBrook Motors, Chambersburg, Pa lettered on the rear quarter.

No large PLYMOUTH decal on car, which infuriated the Chrysler factory heads.
They never forgot that stunt, and later refused to give Jenkins a factory sponsorship after the Winternationals.
Seems Grumpy was angling for a factory deal before the Winternationals, and purposely did not letter the car and
was intent on winning the 65' Winternationals, to spite the Chrysler factory heads.
