The car is actually a1968 Pace Car R code
I have owned and raced it for the past 25 years
I race it in STOCK when I first got it, it was a G/SA,then F/SA and now it is
E/SA or D/SA depending how much it weighs.
The class changes were a result of NHRA factoring the engine horse power. The original HP rating by FORD was 335,
the NHRA rated at 355, then 365 then 375.
The 68 pace car was rated at 365 HP, 69 Fairlane was rated at 355, so the 68 Torino was changed to a 69 Fairlane for class preference.
The best ET we have had is 11.73 @114.5 mph
We did run 11.91 at the Grand Nationals in Montreal Canada
