Everything about this 1969 Ford Torino Talladega is a labor of love. The paint, lettering, decals were done by professional air brush artist and Richard even tracked down one of the Holman & Moody fabricators to do the 3-piece hand made “Gurney Flap” rear spoler. A NASCAR Truck series tech was hired to do the remaining tinwork on the LeeRoy Yarbrough tribute car.
