Holman Moody: The Legendary Race Team Books
By Tom Cotter and Al Pearce
During the golden years of auto racing Holman-Moody was a dominant force in the sport, a juggernaut stock car race team and factory of turn-key race cars. Some of the greatest drivers of the era, from David Pearson to Curtis Turner, Kick Hutchinson, Fred Lorenz, Bobby Allison, and Mario Andretti, sat behind the wheels of Holman-Moody race cars, while many more racers bought parts, engines, and even whole cars from the Ford-Focused race shop.
Holman-Moody's greatest successes came in stock car racing, where the team was a face to be reckoned with in the 1950s and 1960s, earning NASCAR championships with David Pearson in 1968 and 1969.
The Teams unforgettable owners, wheeler-dealer John Holman and racing wizard Ralph Moody, created many on-track innovations that are still used today and paved the way for today's large-scale teams such as Hendrick Motorsports and Penske Racing. Beyond stock car racing, Holman-Moody spearheaded Ford's GT40 endurance racing program alongside Carroll Shelby, fielded a Can-Am car (the infamous Honker II) built engines and chassis for drag racing, and even constructed race boats.
In Holman-Moody: The Legendary Race Team, authors Tom Cotter and Al Pearce chronicle the team's rise and fall with sharp prose and memorable quotes from the racers who spent time with the team. Historic photographs — many of them from the collection of top motorsports photographer Don Hunter — take the reader on the track, in the shop, and behind the scenes of the 1960s' greatest race team.
This book is from a large private collection and is long out of print. It displays very well and the jacket is in great shape. We ship the continental U.S. 48 states only. Thanks!
