Based on the serial number, it is the same car now raced by Dan Lipetz in Historic Trans-Am.

That's what I thought, but what is the author of the story referring to in his last paragraph?

I suspect that the known history of what car Parnelli was driving as his primary car back then has evolved since that article was written back in 1987. Any Mustang guys out there that can fill us in? There are a number of us that enjoy this kind of research (i.e. what serial number of what car won what race). I am no expert on the Mustangs but do appreciate learning more about all the cars that participated in the Trans-Am series.

An article on the Boss 302 engine as prepared for Trans-Am racing with the two Holley Dominator carbs, courtesy of Mike K. (Swede70).
The new Hot Rod magazine (May 2013) has a nicely done 8-page article on the ill-fated Ford Tunnel Port 302 used in Trans-Am in 1968.

Man, if you ever want to feel like you're in a wind tunnel, freeze your buns off and generally be a miserable spectator,
