Careful research uncovered several layers of paint that led us back to the history photo books
of what Broncos were what colors for what races, and so forth. Based on the original Ford paint, and the early races, and physical cues
like the metal formed rear flares which are welded in, we discovered that the Unser Bronco was more than just the Unsers ride for one race, it
was the former 1968 season truck for Larry Minor and Jack Bayer - winning the 68 Mexican 1000, 68 Mint, and 68 Stardust 7-11. And thanks
to Larry's memory of how the 68 season truck started - we know it was also Ray Harvick and Bill Stroppe who drove it to near victory in the
innaugural NORRA Mexican 1000 in 1967. Larry told me he told STroppe he wanted the truck that almost beat them in the mexican 1000 the prior
year to be rebuilt for him as it was a tough little truck.
