    Is that a personal photo of yours?

    I'd love to see more if you have them.

    Thats the ticket right there. Id consider towing with our 6x Broncos if that was possible. Today you get killed if you tow at 50 max. Geez saw 80 last Sunday with a 44' trailer in tow.

    Great pix in this thread, hope there are more.

    Not a lot of attention was put into trailers back then. Dad didn't even take the time to detail the Moon's.

    I like the way he tied the car to the trailer.

    Dad and my God Father purchased #P1060 from Ford Via Carroll Shelby back in '68, the pic was from that day. Notice the MKII brake ducts on the back? Those were added by Shelby and weren't functional. The purpose was to make it look like a MKII to the general public. The car was trailer around the country by Max Kelly and Ron Butler and shown at Ford dealerships after the '66 win. Max was the crew chief and Ron was a head mechanic on the #2 winner.

    Great story Steve. Shelby was the consummate salesman.
