Talladega guru, Rich Ochs sent me an interesting article from back in the day on the “New Model T Ford”. It is about the Talladega! The article is dated April of 1969 and the cars were only weeks old at that point. It even contains a photo of one of the prototype cars.
As with most things you read, it is not 100% factually correct but that is half the fun of getting this kind of stuff. You have to sift through the bad info to get to the good stuff. This is also how rummors get started that take on a life of their own.
