The Econoline...nice matching paint to trailer


What about the Falcon pickup in the picture? Was that Brocks personal car or was it SA inventory. Is that the exact same one at the Boulder Muesium now?

Oh Bob, your teasing me, aren't you?

You have a valid question; Was it Pete Brock's personal car or in SA inventory?
I was saving the 1963 Falcon Panel wagon for the next group of vehicles from the CSSHPD (Carroll Shelby School of High Performance Driving).
We know it replaced the '55 Chevy panel wagon once the School was up and running. I've always assumed it was SA property for the school needs.
Anyone know for sure?

I think it was you teasing all of us knowing full well the obvious Shelby vehicle in the picture and not mentioning it . Big surprise someone noticed it wasn't mentioned ;) ;D

I wasn't 100% sure about the Falcon mentioned, so--- I texted Gail Brock for the answer.

"It was his personal vehicle. It's called a Ford Sedan Delivery. Peter ordered it special with a V8, which meant it had to be moved from the regular production line to a different line that installed V8's. As far as Peter knows, it was the only one built that way. He doesn't recall when he sold it, but the person he sold it to was the person who sold it to the museum in boulder."

They used Bugeye Sprites as race cars at the High Performance School?

Looking at the CSSHPD next,

I don't have any photos of the "55 Chevy panel wagon. It was replaced with Pete Brock's 1963 Ford Falcon Sedan Delivery.
These photo in front of 1042 Princeton Dr. are a great comparison to show the scale of the Daytona.
