This CarTech CT569 Kar-Kraft: Race Cars, Prototypes and Muscle Cars of Ford's Specialty Vehicle Activity Program Book is an excellent read if you’re interested in learning more about Kar-Kraft, how it began, its connection to Ford and how it helped Ford beat Ferrari at “24 Hours of Le Mans,” the world’s oldest automotive endurance race held every year near Le Mans, France. This book offers insight into Kar-Kraft and the catalyst that caused Ford to reach out to them to build a competitive race car: Ford wanted to beat Ferrari at Le Mans after Enzo Ferrari backed out of a deal to sell his beloved car company to them. Ford wanted to become competitive and wanted to do it quickly; however, they didn’t have the resources or expertise to do it, so that’s where Kar-Kraft came in!
This book also discusses Trans-Am, NASCAR, NHRA and Can-Am competitions, as well as the Boss 429, LID Mustang, Boss 302 Maverick, Mach 2C and more! It’s a great overview not only of how Ford won Le Mans, but of how they also managed to win the Daytona 500 and the Trans-Am championship, and it’s the first book ever published that provides an inside scoop on Kar-Kraft, brought to you by a former employee.
