In early 1956, Ford Motor Co. undertook a performance testing program dedicated to dominating stock car racing, because “….a performance program is deemed essential to the maintenance of the Ford car and Thunderbird performance reputation,” stated a Ford Motor Co. executive communication dated Nov. 26, 1956.
