Illinois, thanks
We have kk2417 and was sold in illinois at Jim Whalen Ford. Everytime i see a car like ours I wonder.
It seems our car was raced from new as at 1000mi old it was purchased by the second owner with trailer tie downs welded on the front rails white interior stacked in the back but painted black, excellent condition obviously, never registered and a vertical gate shifter, cool can , and the ususal stuff.

Same wheels as well. However Im not saying this is our car because I think this car is known.....it is the record holder after all. Does anyone know the current owner or the kk number at least

Nice pic by the way, i love this history

I bought his world record holder 1968 mustang/  He bought the car new! raced for many years/ sold it in around 1985 to a guy that keep after him at the track (Cordova Illinois) He then sold it to a gentleman in Chicago who still has the car in his basement. Bill Smith  Kewanee, Illinois. 61443. He has several pics of the car and is a very knowledgeable about that car. He also bought a 1970 boss 302 a few years later.

TO DISTURBED67
would love to hearmore about these cars. We know ours was raced from new but not the original owner etc. Can send some pics to see if it rings some bells. No livery at that time. The evil wicked mean & nasty came about 76 with the third owner in OK

Its a g/blue with a rear wing and the five spoke chrome keystone raider mags. Sorry not much to go on.
Thanks for any info.

my friend owns kk1734 it was bought at rossetter ford in peoria. its royal maroon and a drag car early in its life. its a very low mile stock appearing car with a hollman moody engine. there was also bob guppy a farmer from hanna city area that raced a boss9 in the early 70s.
