This T/A Mustang was raced by Peter Revson in 1969 and served in 1970 as a season backup car. In total it was used in 8 1969/70 T/A races. Dan Gurney drove this Shelby Team car at  Seattle in 1969, Kwech at Donnybrooke (DNF)
According to R.Gillis 148628  missed San Jovite 1969 because it wasn't repaired from Briar.

Later assigned - after Shelby's activities ended - to the Bud Moore Team.
Driven by George Follmer at Lime Rock in 1970.

It was wrecked however in testing at St. Jovite 1970 with A. J. Foyt at the wheel, repaired by Bud Moore and sold to Troy Promotions at least for the '71 season.

It was raced by Jerry Thompson in 1971 as number 4 under Troy Promotions sponsorship. It should not be mixed up with the 9F02M212777 car, listed on this site as being driven as No. 3 by Tony DeLorenzo.
