Ford Racing Century: A Photographic History of Ford Motorsports
"An incredible array of photographs...hours of satisfaction in turning the pages of this book." Classic Motorsports
This oversized book is a photo-driven look at Ford's voluminous racing history in America. This rich history begins with the 1901 race in which Henry Ford defeated Alexander Winton in a 10-lap race on a one-mile oval at the Detroit Driving Club and covers racing through today.
The book includes great Ford racing stories such as the Miller Ford Indy program, development of the Gurney-Westlake Ford V-8, and the 1962-70 Ford Total Performance program, the Trans-Am racing program, the NASCAR racing program, the rich Ford drag racing history, landspeed record Fords, the Shelby programs, the GT-40, and even a section on sport compact drag racing today.
