Small world hey was the brother of Daron Dickherber that has passed away.  He owned my boss 351 back in the 80s.  I guess the two brothers had a speed shop in the St. Louis area and they had a thing for mustangs.  I think Randy was living in Staunton Illinois might try the white pages.

Thanks. Called Country Classics in Staunton where he used to work. They were not very helpful.

I've been racking my brain trying to remember where I know the Dickherbers from. I am in Southern Illinois and remember having some dealings with them back in the 70's.  I remember talking to Randy on the phone a few times but can't remember why.  Maybe they ran the machine shop in St.Louis called Kirn Auto Parts.  About 1975 I bought a complete BOSS 302 engine I found in the St.Louis newspaper classifieds and had it rebuilt at Kirn about 1977.  If you locate them clue me in to the mystery.
1970 BOSS 302 - W code
1970 Sportsroof  - SCJ - W code - 4 speed - project
1970 Ranchero GT - 429 - C6

Looks like Daron Dickherbers old B351 is for sale on ebay?  The two brothers had matching cars, cool.

Just stumbled across this. I used to work for both DAron and Randy off and on while in high school, and just after....mid-late 80s.

Daron had a business named Kustom Kar Kare, and Randy had a business named Randy's Ford Specialties. Semi competitors most of the time, although Daron was more restoration, and Randy concentrated on mechanicals, and later, racing.
I ran into Randy about a year and a half ago at Daron's funeral. He is living in Illinois now.

I can remember at least 5 if not 6-7 B1s between the two of them, including 1 that was rear ended, and Randy clipped across the floor and through the A pillars, using a Mach donor with a rear window defogger, we referred to as  the TWO-PIECE Boss... Randy also had a cool  Yellow 70 Hertz Eliminator sunroof car.

Of the B1s he had, I'd guess you have either the white/black that was sold to Dave Green, with a CJ block, later bought back, which I believe may have passed through Fast Lane in its early years, or the rough Yellow/black that went to Mustang Corral in Edwardsville. The yellow/ black was raced a lot more.

It was always my understanding that this was the B1 he bought new in Nebraska.

It's been 30+ years, so I can't swear to it.

BTW, this pic is on his FB page, posted shortly before he passed.

There is another pic there of a 70 Mach, and you can see the left taillight of a Black B1 in the background.

That was around 1986-87. I could have bought the Mach for $10,500 which was huge money at the time, or the B1 for $4,500.

Any details on the '70 Hertz Eliminator?  Pretty rare cars, as I'm sure you know!

Watched Randy run his yellow B351 at St Louis International many times in the 80's!
Randy lives in (I believe) Alhambra IL, small town near St Louis.
Call Mustang Corral @ 618-656-5428, they will know how to get ahold of Randy.

Randy Dickherber was my best man back in 1975. He had a 1971 Boss351. In 1975, I sold him the body of my 1971 yellow and black Mach1 the engine was over built for the streets and I sold it to a guy who used it at The St Charles Dirt Track. I never thought he would have sold his Boss. It was nice to come across his name here. Thank you for bringing back some good memories.
