I viewed these pix on google images and you will see one that is a pic of a model box with a brown 73 on box. Side panel shows image of supposed Grand American #15 in sorta brown color. Anyone seen or heard of such one? RON

Hi Ron

 

It's not a "car" but rather was a racing series http://www.racingsportscars.com/championship/Grand-Am.html GRAND AMERICAN that Warren Toupe ran his wide body 1973 Mustang in. If you click on various links, from the google images and visit the sites you can read about his build (Maier body)

My Dad took my brother and I to Lime rock trans am race's from the late 60's to late 70' s . In 71 Warren Tope was the only guy that could hang with Mark Donohue in the wicked sounding factory javelin. I was a young kid but remember him cutting strait through the grass on the s turns to pass the dastardly #6. javelin .Good stuff! I think I'll call my brother and see if he still has the slides of that race. Good memories

Mark was very nice to "young kids"!!  I too was taken by a team owner when young (and hence my life today with

Old racecars 40 years latter)

Not sure if you are still interested after all this time, but yes, there is such athing as a NASCAR Grand American mustang. Wayne Andrews won the 1972 championship in a Mustang. Never heard of Warren Snopes. I do know Warren Tope, who drove a big body Mustang in TransAm and IMSA.untitled.png
