Custom One-of-a-kind 1969 Ford Torino GT
Famously Gifted to Nascar’s David Pearson
Updated August 13, 2017
David Pearson, a talented Nascar driver from the late 1960’s, took the Holman Moody’s No. 17 Ford Torino to two victories. As a tribute to honor his role in the successful back-to-back NASCAR Grand National championships, Ford and Holman Moody worked together to design Pearson a custom Cobra Torino of his own.
Since 1970, David Pearson and his sons have loved and driven the car, and plan on continuing to do so. Custom designs, hard work from Ford and Holman Moody and even a spoiler from the original No.17 championship winning car are now being passed down to younger generations.
The 1969 Torino GT has been owned by David Pearson its entire life. More recently, Eddie Pearson was given the iconic vehicle by his father as he continues to care and preserve the stunning vehicle. No part of this Torino has ever been restored, and it is 100% original inside and out. The C6 3-speed transmission, 14-inch chrome slotted rims, black-vinyl bucket seats, and 428 cubic-inch engine are some of the best tributes ever preserved from that era of racing.
The iconic gold-on-blue paint job on this iconic Ford will forever remind us of the best days of Nascar racing. The car will stay within the Pearson family and continues to hit the road from time to time. With proper upkeep, light use and love, this will undoubtedly be a highly-prized possession for decades to come. Nascar and Holman Moody gave a gift that’s truly keen to keep on giving.
