I am trying to find pictures of the race car transporters used by the well funded Ford factory teams in the mid to late sixties. They were Ford cabover trucks, and hauled everything from road racing Cobras to Cobra Jet Mustang drag cars. Anyone know of web sites containing pictures of these trucks?

Not much help as far as web sites but on page 12 of Pat Ganahl's book FORD PERFORMACE it shows one of those trucks.

Thanks, I appreciate that. Pictures of the early haulers are hard to find.

Thanks Roger. That's the rig I was looking for. Cyclones Famous Fords is a neat site. Lots of old pictures. I've been making an all out search of the web and this is the only picture I've seen of the Ford Drag Team hauler.
