1320 Notes – May 1976 Super Stock and Drag Illustrated


A rat motored Maverick? Hmmm…. See what the rules drove people to? This is rumored to have been a 427.

Agent 1320 spotted Gapp & Roush in a motel parking lot the day after Pomona and snapped this flick of the Ford boys putting an honest-to-goodness big block Chevy between the rails of their 4-door Maverick.

After track tests were delayed first by a water leak, then bent pushrods, and finally five straight days of rain (ending LA’s longest dry spell in 20 years), G & R decided to call it quits and returned home to ready their new Pinto for Florida. Gapp said they’d renew their rat motor wringout after the IHRA race in Miami.
