The year’s Carlisle All-Ford Nationals brought out 48,983 Ford fanatics on June 3-5, the highest number since the show began in 1995. A record 2,625 cars sparkled on the Carlisle Fairgrounds’ show field, sponsored by National Parts Depot. More than 1,200 vendors sold all sorts of Ford-related parts, accessories and memorabilia.

The largest gathering at the show was the Boss Car Nationals: Boss Cars Reunited, which brought more than 275 Boss cars, more than ever assembled anywhere at any time.

This effort propelled the Boss Mustang 302 into racing history. For the 1967-’68 season, the Moore team raced Mercury Cougars, one of which was on display. Also available for autographs was Donald Farr, editor of Mustang & Fords and Mustang Monthly and author of the book “Mustang Boss 302, Ford’s Trans-Am Pony Car.”
