CanAm Sports-Racing Spider
Chassis #: 50-12
In 1968, Ford Motor Company decided to enter the Canadian-American Sport Car racing series called the Can-Am. They specifically built a few all aluminum 427 cubic-inch motors to be installed in a McLaren M6-8 which Shelby purchased from Trojan Motor Cars, who built all the Can-Am McLarens. This car, chassis number 50-12 was one of two cars Shelby campaigned and was driven by the late Peter Revson. At the end of the 1968 Can-Am season, many teams were invited to race in the Mt. Fuji 200 World Challenge held on November 23, 1968 at Mt. Fuji, Japan. This car won the race with Revson driving.

In 2000, the car was purchased by Joseph DiLoreto who, along with the expert craftsmanship of Bob Habermehl finally restored the McLaren with the proper all-aluminum Ford 427 engine. As far as we know, this is the only big block Ford Can-Am car actually campaigned in vintage racing. The car took over two years to restore to its original condition.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
