This is a very unique car. It is one of 9 Ford Talladega prototypes. These cars were built as Torinos and do not have data plates on the driver’s door. Most of these cars were not intended for delivery to the public. This one was given to NASCAR Bill France by Ford for use at Daytona Speed Weeks in 1969.
It was placed in the paddocks during Speed Weeks and all of the drivers from the Daytona 500, 24 hours of Daytona and the motorcycle races signed the car!
The car was titled in the name of International Speedway Corporation and driven by Mr. France and his son for many years. From there the car resided in the archives of the Talladega Motor Speedway Museum until 1999 when is was released for restoration.
