Ford Drag Team at MCACN
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:51:06 am »
The complete known Ford Drag Team will be featured at the MCACN show in Chicago November 18 & 19

The Ford Drag Team consisted of 6 cars (2) Super Stock 428 Mustangs (2) Super Stock 428 Fairlane Cobras and (2) 427 SOHC Pro Stock Mustangs. All five known cars will be at the show, Randy Payne's Fairlane Cobra is believed to have been wrecked back in the day. The Drivers were Hubert Platt, Ed Terry, Dick Wood and Randy Payne. This team was not sponsored by the Factory it was the Factory. For those who don't know about the Ford Drag Clubs and the Ford Drag Team here is your chance to learn, lots of factory photos and memorabilia will be at the show displayed with the cars. Check it out the last time these cars were together it was 1970.

Anyone that has photos to share or information regarding the Ford Drag Team please PM me. Thank you, Dave

   I supplied  some carbs and a pair of Goodyear slicks to one or more in the group. Wish I could be there. I was at OCIR the day ( in '69) they took all of the "publicity photos" of the cars and trucks. It was a LONG day.

If anyone goes to MCACN and could get close enough to the cars to get VINs and pictures I'd greatly appreciate being able to add that to our files. I'd love to get there myself, but my day job has me out of the country.
