Gapp & Roush – 69 Super Stock Mustang

I really don’t know much about this car. Story from Dad is that there was a hole in rules that would allow this car to run and win class in Super Stock/HA which they did at Indy in ’72.

Beyond that entry I’m not sure how much they ran this car.


´╗┐The caption of the photo reads:
Although best known for their Ford Pro Stockers, the team of Wayne Gapp and Jack Roush actually drove a Cobra Jet-powered ’69 Ford Mustang in the early 1970’s in the Super Stock/H Automatic category.

Here’s another pic of the car that I found in my Dad’s files:

Cool ride.

3-24-2010: The original headline was “68 Mustang”. Tom Tate pointed out to me that this is a 1969 Mustang Convertible. Doh! My bad…

A little bit of back story on this car. My Dad tells me that the Jack spotted a hole in the Super Stock rules that enabled this car to win class at Indy with WG driving. The idea, of course, to get a bit of attention for this new business called ‘Gapp & Roush Performance’. Perhaps you’ve heard of it?

Be nice to have this car today.
