The History of the 1967/68 Ed Hinchcliff/Steve Ross  T/A Mustang 
Ed Hinchcliff started working for Ford in 1963. He bought this 1967 Mustang (7F01A139506) that was cosmetically converted to a 68 from the prototype lot at Ford through the employees program accoding to the J.Bittle website (link see below).

Driven by Ed Hinchcliff in 1968 in several T/A races - the first was Watkins Glen in August - damaged at Michigan Intl. Speedway, repaired and from 1969 on driven by Steve Ross. It appeared at the 1970 St. Jovite race with door #40 and later in Mid-Ohio amongst others.. 

The car as stored in 1995 at one place in Mexico. Steve Francis was attempted to buy it back then for 14.000 dollar, got all the pics from its location in Mexico and was in touch via Rick Nagel,  but choose
finally another car - the ex Claude Saffter notchback.
