Bill Clawson 1968 Body in White A/S Notchback


This 1968 body-in-white Notchback Mustang was built by FoMoCo engineer Bill Clawson for SCCA A/S national level racing. After racing the Notchback, Clawson parked it and purchased a Bud Moore built T/A  '70 Mustang from Warren Tope. 



The '70 Mustang (9F02M212776)  was George Follmer's primary car for the 1970 Trans Am season. The Bud Moore car was purchased minus engine/trans.



After Clawson removed the drivetrain from the Notchback and put it in the Bud Moore car he sold the '68 as a roller to former Kar Kraft Engineering employee Charlie Henry.  

 


The car changed its color then from red to light blue/dark blue.



At the time of the purchase, Henry was a High School auto shop teacher. This was Henry’s first race car and would let the students crew for him at the local Waterford Hills, Michigan race circuit.
