ta22, thanks for the current pictures and info.  Any ideas what it did between late 1970 and 1976?  Was it sitting at the Moore shops uncompleted?

I also found a few pictures of the car at the Grand-Prix Molson de Trois-Rivières that took place on August 23, 1980 at Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada.  These came from here: http://autocourse.ca/index.php?file=photos.html

Thanks for the info.  Any ideas what it did between late 1970 and 1976?  Was it sitting at the Moore shops uncompleted?  I also remember seeing the pictures but didn't realize that it was a stillborn factory built car.  I found a few more pictures of the car at the Molson Trans-Am that took place on September 11, 1977 at Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant, Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada.  See them here: http://autocourse.ca/index.php?file=photos.html

I found this ad in the back of the November/December 2014 edition of Vintage Motorsport: The Journal of Motor Racing History.  Does anyone have any more information on this particular car.  I know about the 1970 "bodies in white" used by Bud Moore during the 1971 series and the one just recently put together and sold at auction but I don't recall ever seeing a picture or reading any information about a factory 1971 bodied Trans Am Mustang. 

The seller states in the ad that this "Mustang is 1 of 1.  Construction began at R&D department for 1971 team.  The car was orphaned when Ford dropped all racing in the Fall of 1970.  Later acquired by engineer and raced for 11 years."

Thanks

I posted this picture on the 3rd page of this thread but I mistakenly identified it as the 1971 Watkins Glen Trans Am 2.5.  In reality this picture depicts the start of the 1970 Trans Am U2 event held at Watkins Glen on August 16, 1970.  You can see the 1970 Corvette convertible pace car heading into pit lane just before the cars get the green flag to start the event.  If this Corvette was used to pace the U2 event than it is a safe bet that it was also used to pace the O2 event as well.  The picture came from here: http://transamracing.blogspot.com/2011/02/watkins-glen-trans-am-2.html

I found scans of an article previewing the 1970 Trans Am season that appeared in the March 1970 edition of Motor Trend.  Included in the article is a cool rendition previewing the Owens-Corning Fiberglass Camaro that I have never seen before.  Enjoy!

I guess it is fitting that we just found this picture of one of his Camaros at the 1971 SCCA Runoffs held at Road Atlanta.

One more from Riverside 1971

Is this one of the ex-Sam Posey Challengers?  I recall someone looking for a good picture of the car during its post 1970 season.

The next 4 are from the Mission Bell 200 held at Riverside International Raceway in Riverside, California on October 3, 1971.
