    First powertrain, 260's, had cooling problems, and all 3 prototypes burned up infront of Lee Iacocca. Carrol thought that was it, but Ford let them correct the problem.

    Even with all of the reliability problems with the 289 prototype, made some suspension adjustments, they were consistenet with the Corvette. The separation increase from there on.

    Lost the first race in 62 to the Vette, due to axle snapping off, and never lost the next 2-3 years.
