Note: Although #10 was listed in an elder SAAC registry as one of the 2 cars delivered to Dockery Ford (and Malcolm Starr mentions 2 cars being delivered to them - see 1967 #11) today it seems to have become accepted that this is the John McComb car, today owned by Gary Underwood (SAAC registrar).
The History of the 1967 Shelby notchback #10:
Lime Rock Park Vintage Fall 1992 presented by John McComb himself
Lime Rock 1992 - the engine compartment
John McComb trailered his car with Terry Doty to SAAC-18 in July 1993/Watkins Glen
In the 8oies John McComb had restored the car with Terry Doty and entered it in vintage races until 2002, when he sold it to Gary Underwood.
Acc. to Alex Gabbards book "Fast Mustangs" and an interview with John McComb and Terry Doty, the McComb 67 car was flown in brand new to Kansas Citry and transported to their shop in June 1967. It still had seats, carpet, bumpers and lights.
"Shelby had build the
engine, changed the spring rates, changed to a heavier sway bar, added
traction bars, put Koni shocks on and put a bigger fuel tank in. Equipped with
two 600cfm Holleys, GT40 heads, piston and rod mods the engine turned out
18 national SCCA races
Gary Underwood bought it late 2002 from John
