Ford Takes On Ferrari and Wins the 24 Hours of Le Mans
Henry Ford II wanted to beat Ferrari in the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans, so he made it a priority to show the world what his American company could achieve on a global stage. Ford not only won the 24 Hours of Le Man in 1966, but '67, '68 and '69 as well. This video looks back at that era with Edsel B. Ford II, Dan Gurney and Mose Nowland.





1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II Dan Gurney Special
The Cyclone Spoiler II design featured a stretched, tapered nose and flush-mounted grille. It also had re-rolled rocker panels that allowed the car to be lowered without violating NASCAR's ride-height requirements. Two trim packages were available: the Dan Gurney Special in Wimbledon White and Presidential Blue and the Cale Yarborough Specials (as seen on this car) in Candy Apple Red over Wimbledon White. Both were named after Mercury's best NASCAR drivers of the time.

Dan Gurney: All American Racer - Birth of AAR (episode 1)
Welcome to the first episode of Dan Gurney: All American Racer, Birth of AAR presented by Bell Helmets. Gurney was one of the greatest drivers, innovators, thinkers, that America has produced. He remains the only American team owner to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix in his own car, and RACER's Robin Miller took the opportunity to accompany Gurney down the hallway of the All American Racing workshop in Santa Ana, California, and ask him for the stories behind some of the many hundreds of photos on the walls. The result is a six-episode series giving some insight into the genial gentleman -- and gentle man -- who turned All American Racing into a winner on both sides of the Atlantic. In this first episode, Dan tells Robin about the first Eagle designs. This video is presented by Bell Helmets. The famously simple logo that became simply famous did so almost subconsciously. Just as, when you purchase a car, the number of similar examples you see on the road seemingly multiplies, once you start looking for Bell logos, you spot them everywhere, be they in frayed and sepia-tinted monochrome, in early glorious and classic Technicolor or embedded in the wild colorschemes on helmets of today. But Bell's link up with Gurney is closer than that. The man who famously used to wrap a hotel handtowel around the lower part of his face to protect him from the elements and debris was perhaps the natural choice to embrace the concept of a full-face helmet. Bell produced its first full-face motorcycle helmet in 1966, and Dan leapt at the chance to use one, debuting an all-black example in the 1968 Indy 500. Three years later, everyone who started the "500" was wearing Bell. Enjoy this first episode of Dan Gurney: All American Racer, produced by Adam Friedman's Vertical Assent for RACER. Five more will follow on consecutive Tuesdays through May and early June.

Dan Gurney: All American Racer - A Different Era (episode 3) presented by Bell Helmets
Gurney was one of the greatest drivers, innovators, thinkers, that America has produced. He remains the only American team owner to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix in his own car, and RACER's Robin Miller took the opportunity to accompany Gurney down the hallway of the All American Racing workshop in Santa Ana, California, and ask him for the stories behind some of the many hundreds of photos on the walls. The result is a six-episode series giving some insight into the genial gentleman -- and gentle man -- who turned All American Racing into a winner on both sides of the Atlantic. In this third episode, Dan tells Robin about the danger, but also -- perhaps as a consequence -- the camaraderie that existed between racers in the 1960s. Younger viewers may also be startled by the lack of money floating around the paddocks of that era. Even the greatest drivers were humble, because the label "superstar' was only hung on pop music icons. Like the title of this episode suggests, it truly was a another time. This video is presented by Bell Helmets. The famously simple logo that became simply famous did so almost subconsciously. Just as, when you purchase a car, the number of similar examples you see on the road seemingly multiplies, once you start looking for Bell logos, you spot them everywhere, be they in frayed and sepia-tinted monochrome, in early glorious and classic Technicolor or embedded in the wild colorschemes on helmets of today.

Dan Gurney: All American Racer - The Pepsi Challenger (episode 6) presented by Bell Helmets
Welcome to the sixth and final episode of Dan Gurney: All American Racer presented by Bell Helmets. Gurney was one of the greatest drivers, innovators, thinkers, that America has produced. He remains the only American team owner to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix in his own car, and RACER's Robin Miller took the opportunity to accompany Gurney down the hallway of the All American Racing workshop in Santa Ana, California, and ask him for the stories behind some of the many hundreds of photos on the walls. The result is a six-episode series giving some insight into the genial gentleman -- and gentle man -- who turned All American Racing into a winner on both sides of the Atlantic. In this sixth episode, Dan tells Robin Miller about the striking Pepsi Challenger in which both Geoff Brabham and Mike Mosley starred, and which was so advanced -- so good, basically -- that it got penalized. This video is presented by Bell Helmets. The famously simple logo that became simply famous did so almost subconsciously. Just as, when you purchase a car, the number of similar examples you see on the road seemingly multiplies, once you start looking for Bell logos, you spot them everywhere, be they in frayed and sepia-tinted monochrome, in early glorious and classic Technicolor or embedded in the wild colorschemes on helmets of today.

1969 Boss 302 Trans Am Dan Gurney Race Prototype
https://www.youtube.com/user/MustangConnection1 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 Gallant. 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.
