Assembled at Ford Motor Co., Milpitas, CA plant in 1969 as a six cylinder fastback in Wimbledon White, it was then delivered to Folger Ford in Monrovia, CA. The car then went to Holman-Moody-Stroppe in Long Beach, CA to be prepared for the new Pro-Stock racing class for the 1970 season and was converted from a 1969 to a 1970 model. Numerous modifications were made to lighten the car such as fiberglass hood, fenders, door, and deck lid, ect. The engine bay was modified to accept the 427cid SOHC engine, front and rear suspension was modified for drag racing. The car was assigned Pro-Stock #944 and sent to the Ford Drag Team to be raced by Ed Terry. Raced throughout the country in 1970 and 1971 until Ford discontinued it's racing sponsorship. This race car is unrestored and unmodified except for the engine and transmission.
