I recently received some photos from Gerry Bonanni who is a Senior Engineer , Ford Paint and Body Repair for Ford Paint and Body Technology Center. These are similar to some of the cars seen in an old video that some of you might have seen on Facebook. There are some really cool cars here including some of the Bunkie Knudsen Yellow Talladega and the King Cobra.
Even though they aren’t all aero cars I think it is very interesting that all these rare Ford factory toys were out on the street just sitting in Kar Kraft’s front yard back in 1969. It makes you realize there were some real car guys at Ford back in the day and they must have been having a blast.
Check these photos out and look at them closely for things that might suprise you.
King Cobra undercover!
Boss 302 Trans Am car for Smokey Yunick!
See hand written note at bottom of photo? How about the sign on the building?
Can Am was a great series, wish it still existed.
Anyone know who is walking down the sidewalk?
Bunkie Knudsen car, check out the side exhaust. I wonder who was driving the Corvette?
