In 1969 with the success of the Talladega and Spoiler II programs, David Pearson’s Championship season what was on the schedule for 1970? How would Ford step it up for the next season? What did they learn about building limited production Boss 429 cars? Take a look inside Ford and what might have been if they had not pulled out of racing for 1970! To get a real understanding of what is written here you must realize that this Agenda and discussion topics was not prepared by Ford but rather by ADD-Supply. In part, it is obviously a Proposal by ADD for them to do more work for Ford. However, this insider communication does provide a clear look into what was being considered by Ford for 1970. The hand written notes and modifications to the Agenda also provide what, at least one attendee, thought of some of the recommendations!
About the Author: Some of my first memories and strongest memories of my childhood relate to cars. I still remember back when things happened based on what car I was drinving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on a unique and rare muscle car. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and their only purpose was to win NASCAR races using their Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars for sure. This site is devoted to them and their owners past and present.
