What if the Ford vs. ferrari story had another chapter outside of Lemans? I present to you my concept for a early seventies Ford Shelby Formula 1 Team!
You get two versions of this fantasy-team:
The classic Ford racing blue with the iconic white stripes, and a color flipped...
Here is the last Ford for now. This is Dean Gregson's Boss 'Stang ran at St. Jovite in 1969 and select Trans-Am events in 1970. His best finish in this car was 9th at 1969 St. Jovite. His best in 1970 was a 12th at Bridgehampton.
Enjoy, and stay tuned for the final manufacturer to be posted...
Dean Gregson was the performance manager at Tasca Ford, as as such was able to secure Ford technical support. This car was involved in the development of the T/A Boss 302 engine, running a prototype of the powerplant in some A-Sedan races in 1968.
This car only entered one Trans-Am race...
Known as the Troy Promotions team in 1971, the cars donned new numbers and a slightly adjusted livery for the 1972 Trans-Am season.
Tony DeLorenzo started the season at Lime Rock in a Firebird (the same one Milt Minter drove), but later drove the #36 for Troy Promotions. They planned to run...
Here is John Hall's Mustang as it appeared in 1972 Trans-Am events at Donnybrooke and Road America. 24th was his best finish.
He did finish 9th at Edmonton in the 1971 T/A race there, but I'm unsure whether the car looked like this or was still the Grabber Blue livery. Figured I'd mention it...
Back to Fords today, I have some I missed the first time around.
Here's the Boss Mustang that John Hall entered in the Kent and Riverside Trans-Am races in 1970. He won with this car at local SCCA events, but in Trans-Am his best finish for 1970 was 13th at Riverside.

As a follow-up to the 1970 Bud Moore cars, here are the 1971 versions. Slightly different sponsors, same in almost every other aspect. Follmer was elevated to the primary #15, whereas Peter Gregg took control of the #16.
Follmer took 2 wins on the season, but ultimately no one could best...
Here's another Dan Furey car, this time #61. Unsure of what year this paint scheme was ran, I put 1970 as that seems to be the most likely but I can't for the life of me find anything that 100% confirms this. If anyone knows for sure what year please let me know and I'll update this if...
Here's a more well-known paint scheme from the Trans-Am series. Ed Hinchcliff raced this beautiful Mustang throughout the 1970, 1971, and 1972 seasons. He ran a couple of numbers, mainly 41 and 81. The #41 is represented here.
Hinchcliff was moderately successful with the car, scoring 4 top...
Tope Racing Enterprises seemed to have been busy in 1971. In addition to Tope's own #31, which would see much success in the coming years, they also fielded this #32 periodically for Gene Harrington.
This is the car roughly as it appeared at Bryar Motorsports Park in 1971. The engine didn't...
Here is the #40 Mustang piloted by Steve Ross in the 1970 and 1971 Trans-Am seasons. He never quite cracked the top 10 in this car, but he did finish almost every race he entered, a notable accomplishment for the time.
More paint schemes to come, I'm in a good painting groove. Enjoy!
