It's an amazing story - and truck. I like  how Holman  Moody got to keep it!

 

In the mega money world of  Historics,  when a hugely expensive period transporter seems essential to some drivers, turning up to a race with this would certainly  make statement - maybe use it to haul the Howmet sports car?

And at least one of the trailers did become a race-car transporter...

 

Very interesting story, especially around the time Ford pulled the pin and how Holman dealt with them.

What a great looking 'rig' in the Red & Silver livery, with the tandem trailer hooked up.

Very interesting story to boot!
