Charles R. Morris has been a Ford fan for over four decades and drag raced Fords in Stock & Super Stock classes during the mid '60s to mid '70s. In the mid-late '70s he crewed on an Alcohol funny car, and the '80s he lent a hand on the Budweiser-Motorcraft Super Team Pro-Stock Ford Thunderbird of Frank Iaconio. Morris is currently a member of the 422 Motorsports Nostalgia Super Stock Drag racing team & the owner of the Norristown Ford 1963-1/2 lightweight Galaxie Super Stock drag car. He has been a contributing writer to various automotive magazines for 16 year and is currently associated with Legendary Ford Magazine. He is a full-time resident of the resort community of Normandy Beach, NJ, where he lives with his 15-year-old basset hound and four cats. His hobbies include automotive history, scuba diving, and auto restoration. The 1960s was arguably the most important decade for drag racing. It had exciting cars, thrilling races, and most importantly, factory participation. Among the best high-performance cars and engines were those coming from Dearborn, Michigan. Ford Motor Company's "Total Performance Years" saw a breakthrough as drag racing helped the younger, performance- and style-conscious consumer to begin receiving some recognition. Factory participation in drag racing pushed the envelope for high performance developments. Ford's FE-series engine, Police Interceptor, GT 390, Single Overhead Cam, Cobra Jet, and Boss 429 are all covered in detail. See the cars and the drivers that made them famous - Dick Brannan's Goldfinger, Bill Lawton's Mystery Mustang, "Dyno Don" Nicholson's Eliminator Comet, Gas Ronda's stretched Mustang, Al Joenic's Batcar, and more. Accomplished journalist and life-long Ford aficionado Charles Morris takes you back to the Total Performance Years through first-hand accounts as well as over 400 rare photographs. A drag racer since 1966, Morris has run cars in both Stock and Super Stock classes. He is currently the owner of the original Norristown Ford 1963 lightweight Galaxie and races the car in Nostalgia Super Stock as part of the 422 Motorsports Drag Racing Team. This book is a must read for all drag racing fans, not just Ford enthusiasts. Email or call Action Performance (631) 737-7100. PayPal and shipping available.
