ARI Atlanta Int. Raceway Mustang 428 convertible

Bruce's car is one of the best documented ARI Mustangs. Bruce spent years of reasearch and was fortunate to have some friends with relations inside Ford, so he obtained quite rare documents, that helped him getting his car into the MCA Thoroughbred class. 
Thanks to Bruce from Miami and John from Norway I am proud to have this information here on this website since 2002.

The Atlanta Int. Raceway convertible made its big debut in October 1992 in a Mustang Times issue.

Details about the ex-Bruce Weiss ARI Pace Car

On the left is the original build sheet of Bruce Weiss ARI 428 convertible

This is the confirmation letter about 0F03R120302 between Ford and ARI
Ford sold the car to ARI for 1 Dollar and the deal was to buy it back after pace car use again for 1 Dollar. The car was not allowed for public sales or use, just for pace car duties.
Apparently the car later was sold instead and went through various hands, until it ended up in Bruce hands.
