Of the seven factory-supported Mustang race cars built for the 1969 Trans-Am season, this one was to be campaigned by the legendary Smokey Yunick of Daytona, Florida. Shortly after he received the car, he was told by Ford to change its configuration and specifications to run oval races instead. Yunick's team made the changes to the car and it was easily leading its first race at Talladega when a broken push rod put the car out of the race. After that one event, it was retired, then campaigned in regional races for a few years. Today, it is restored to its original Trans-Am, as-shipped-to-Yunick configuration.
