I’m talking about the 1969 Ford Torino Talladega that we just completed for George Poteet. For those of you who might not be aware, we built the ‘69 Barracuda “Blowfish” Bonneville Salt Flat race car for George about six years ago. Prior to the Blowfish, George had called on us to construct the 1957 Ford Ranch Wagon and the 1954 Plymouth “Sniper”. The Billet Specialties wheels, meant to resemble those used on the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40, feature details like safety-wired knock-offs and a two-tone spun aluminum and matte brown finish. Power comes from a fuel-injected Ford Boss 429 V-8, said to be good for some 750 horsepower; like the rest of the car, the engine bay itself is a work of art, with most components sprayed in a muted bronze to offset the car’s finish.
