If it was 1968 and you wanted to make the Ford Fairlane/Torino more competitive on the NASCAR Super Speedways what would you do? This hand written note may be the beginnings of putting down on paper for the first time what would become the Talladega. For this communication to Special Vehicles/Kar Kraft and Ford Design Center the car is referred to simply as “Performance Vehicle”.
From other communications we have published we know that a great deal of time was spent on the study of aero effect on speed, lift and down force. This design concept seems to take those lessons learned into consideration.
Two important comments were the proposed colors and the number of vehicles to be produced. It is also interesting that this calls for 4 prototypes to be available on November 20, 1968 for NASCARs Homologation consideration.
