On “My Car Story” we're in Barrington IL at The Barrington Car Show on 8-24-17.
We're looking at a 1969 Ford Torino Talladega in Wimbledon White Paint and features a factory 428 Cobra Jet Engine.
The car's Owner is Kevin Rogers. Kevin’s had the car since January 2017. He shares details on this one year only factory produced car. Ford had to build at least 500 for the public so the car could be driven in NASCAR. This car was lengthened about 6 inches in the front for aerodynamics and was an “Aero Car” built for NASCAR. This body style produced many wins. One Famous Driver who drove this car was Richard Petty who finished second in NASCAR's Grand National points race in 1969, driving a Talladega.
