This 1969 Ford Torino Talladega is a true labor of love. The paint, lettering and decals were done by professional air brush artist. Richard even tracked down one of the Holman & Moody fabricators to do the 3-piece hand made “Gurney Flap” rear spoiler. A NASCAR Truck series tech was hired to do the remaining tinwork on the LeeRoy Yarbrough tribute car.
The whole interior of the ’69 Torino Talladega including the roll cage was reproduced to look as close to original as possible. The engine consist of mostly NASCAR correct components including a NOS block. It is connected to NASCAR Super Top Loader transmission and Detroit Locker differential.
