Dan Gurney Tribute Parade, Goodwood Revival 2012
To celebrate the incredible life and career of the hugely charismatic Dan
Gurney, the 2012 Goodwood Revival featured a re-birth of the "Dan Gurney
for President" campaign and a tribute parade of some of his most famous
race cars. Ranging from a Lotus Cortina to his own AAR Eagle-Weslake, one
of the most beautiful open wheel racers ever built it was truly a fitting
way to thank the great man for the entertainment his passion for
motor-racing has given us.
1969 Boss 302 Trans Am Dan Gurney Race Prototype
Beautifully restored 1969 Shelby Trans Am Mustang Boss 302 that belonged to Dan
Gurney. There were only three cars built for the 1969 season and this car
chassis 9F02R-112073 was the prototype, test car, and Ford media car.
The car was driven by Dan Gurney at Kent and he then practiced with it at
Sears Point. Peter Revson drove it at Laguna Seca finishing 4th overall for
the car's best result of the 1969 season.
The car was then used as a test car at Bud Moore's shop, raced by John
Gimbel of Dark Horse Racing, went back to Bud Moore, and was then sold to
Daher Racing from Guadalajara Mexico. Believe it or not, the car found its
way back to Bud Moore who then sold it to Danny Moore. Danny Moore used
this vehicle to win the SCCA National Championship. It was in 2003 that the
1969 Shelby Trans Am Mustang Boss 302 was restored by Phil
The Shelby Racing Team Boss 302 was restored to "a very high concours
standard with as many of the original parts retained as possible". Tony
Oddo of T.O.E Performance Products rebuilt the 8 cylinder engine to produce
527hp with 420 ft lbs of torque.
Last known asking price was $1,100,000.

1962 Daytona 3-Hour Continental (Please read description because of minimal narration.)
This is a short clip taken from home movies of the 1962 Daytona 3-Hour
Continental. This is the first of what will become the 24 Hours of
Daytona. At the start of the clip is Dan Gurney looking at his winning
Lotus Climax. He won in legendary fashion. He had a huge lead when the
engine began to fail so he parked himself right in front of the start
finish line and when the three hours were up he used his starter motor and
gravity to cross the finish line and win. The following year the FIA
outlawed this practice. Keep an eye open for the silver Ferrari 250 GT as
it comes quickly into the pit area. It is driven by legendary stock car
driver Fireball Roberts. Note in the clip when Jo Bonnier squats down next
to a beautiful blond in a car. That girl was a well known movie star in
the 1960's. Do you know who she is? This film clip courtesy of Mario
Levetto. Check out my photo captures from this video and other vintage
race photos at my Flickr page. Go to the following site:
