  • 1967 CN Barc Ford

    The story behind this car's livery in my imaginary world

    Canadian National Railways revamped their logo and Color scheme in the early 60's, To raise their corporate profile they thought they would sponsor racing. It seemed like a good way to get the new image out. Passenger traffic is in decline so the railway decided it would serve as an effort to entice people back onboard as well as promote their fast freight slogan.

    Body is an NSR Ford Mark IV

    Chassis is a scratch built brass pan and Piano wire with a sidewinder power train.

    Cox Mag wells from the 60'S

    Currently it has a 21.K motor in it

          Well CN did convince GE to come aboard and buy some space on the car.

          At one point I do believe Michael Waltrip had BNSF (Burlington Northern Sante Fe) as a sponsor of his NASCAR. Yes, it was a minor sponsor with SUNOCO being the primary sponsor.
