The History of the Body in white #3-1971
This was an original Bud Moore Team Car or to be exact a Body/chassis left over of the T/A program. In fact a 1971 Back-up car, but acc. to Ed Ludtkes Mustang Road Racing Registry never raced in the 1971 T/A season.

"Sold in 1972 by Bud Moore to Morris Davis of Punta Gorda, Fl. Dan Doughthrey was the driver at that time. It was equipped then with a 351C engine. They raced it one time - at the Paul Revere250 at Daytona, July 1973 and quickly decided the prize $ in sportscar racing was too lean. Davis bought a stockcar from Bud Moore in late 1973, and sold the T/A Mustang to Len Cammack. (New Jersey?)
Cammack struggled with the car until he teamed up with Wendell Scott, a former Nascar independent, out of Danville, Va. They raced the car in 1974 and 1975 with limited success, in the newly formed IMSA. Money ran out and the car sat outside in Scott's private junkyard from 1975 to 1984.
I bought the car from the Cammack's in 1984, in Danville, began restoring it in 1986 and sold it to Mark Hereford in 1988, the result of a chance meeting while attending the SAAC meet in California that year." Mike Durhan
"I helped Mark Hereford in 1990 with his car because the engine was messed up when he bought it. The car was done in 91 and was judged in a SCCA concours 100 points on 3 shows. Mark raced the car at the 92 Wine Classic at Sears Point.
Richard Rodeck did the body and paint on Herefords car. As always it was a beautiful job. Mark put a lot of time in the car and it showed very well on the field." Don Hodges
Sold to Ken Epsman in 1996.
1999 sold to Jamey Mazotta. Still actively vintage raced today.
