Does anyone have any information on Wayne Bard racing a 1966 Shelby mustang group 2 trans-am car in 1970. He says he was CCR champion in 1970 and has a watch that is engraved with that information. I have purchased this car from him and am trying to gather any racing history of the car. Being a Shelby made car any racing history greatly increases it value. Anyone with any information or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Is this the one? "CAR #16 Reportedly purchased by Shelby American employee (name not known). Driven to Charlotte, NC. Purchased from used car lot by present owner Wayne Bard (Seminole, FL) 7/69. Driven until '77 and garaged and untouched since then. Delivered with aftermarket chrome Crager 15" x 6" chrome spoke wheels. Reportedly never raced." www.1966shelbynotchbackmustang.com/NotchbackHistory.html
"The History of the Shelby T/A no. 16
This car has been a mystery for years with little publication. It has been found after 40 years and is now a topic of the SAAC forum.
Reportedly it was sold to a Shelby employee and driven to Holman Moody in Charlotte/NC. Lee Holman remembers it sitting in their shop. He told me that story as well last year when I visited him during the 50th Anniversary.

yes, that is the car in question. A friend and i bought it a few weeks ago. My partner is running the post on the SAAC forum. Wayne told me that he won a race with this mustang. He said he raced it a few times, but not in a sanctioned race. any information on this car in a race sanctioned or not would be appreciated. He said he had some club news letters about it but could not find them.
