Ford was everywhere in the 1960’s, from Indy to NHRA, from
NASCAR to Off-Road, from LeMans France to the streets of
America, Ford’s ‘Total Performance’ advertising campaign
stressed racing, and winning! This DVD is a great companion
to our previous DVD “Ford Total Performance”, and here we
have more original films (not contemporary flashbacks) showing
the winning ways of the Ford Motor Company in the 1960’s.

a NASCAR winning race car, as well as seeing how Ned conducts seminars, etc. Ned Jarrett was truly one of the greatest

Ford’s 1969 NASCAR Season (color – 6 min)
A highlight reel showing Ford’s successful 1969 NASCAR season, featuring Yarborough, Pearson, and their newest
acquisition, Richard Petty. Ford was thrilled to pry the already legendary Richard Petty away from Chrysler for the
1969 season, and they placed him in a well-funded Ford Torino. While Petty’s stint with Ford was short-lived,
Ford was anxious to let everyone know “The King” was now on Ford’s team. – Condition (VG+)


1969 24 Hours Of Le Mans Race (color – 36 min)
This film was produced by Castrol Oil, but is significant in that this was the last time the fabulous

of the Le Mans track on-board with a GT40. –  Condition (VG+)
