Purvis Ford as well as other Ford dealerships during the Gurney
era. They sponsored Dan Gurney's NASCAR Legend Series race team.
Dan Gurney raced using numbers, 28, 121 and 0. 28 was his lucky
number for the 1963 Riverside Series which he won 5 times. Pat

of the man himself. With only 296 mile on the car it was sold to

diligently serviced regularly. Now up for sale with Autosport
