The Birth Of A Revolution

The Birth Of A Revolution

I was browsing YouTube for vintage LeMans footage when I found this two-part clip on the design and development of the shoebox Ford. Of course, the footage sugar coats what was actually a very tumultuous process and time for Ford. The company was just getting out of war programs, its […]
