Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ford Torino 1st Pike’s Peak 1969 Unser This very good looking subject is released in Spark’s Pikes Peak winners series but was a class winner rather than taking overall victory in 1969, Bobby Unser won the stock car class and set a new category course record in 13’40” but it was Mario Andretti who took the overall win in 1969 with an open-wheeled machine almost a minute faster! This machine may look like a NASCAR of the period but it was purpose built for the event by Holman & Moody, with a Smokey Yunik BOSS 429 motor. Period photos show the car on all terrain tyres, which makes sense for the mixed surface event, rather than the smooth race rubber seen on the model but otherwise it checks out very well and also features a driver figure.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
