Jeff,
Thanks for posting this picture! I have never seem/heard of this car before! Do you know if it was ever campaigned, and if so, how did it do?

John -

There were two of these built in 1957. This is the only one surviving - the other was "lost" or destroyed.

The car was for sale just a couple years ago after the owner, Bo Cheadle, passed away. Don't know who owns it now, I believe the asking price was around $200k.

The cars were run at Daytona, where they ran 160+ mph, solidly trouncing the "Brand X" sports car by 30 mph.

See the My Classic Car "Legendary Fords" video for a short test. Or check out:

regards,

Jeff
