Rad Rides by Troy has unleashed upon the SEMA crowds this custom 1969 Ford Torino Talladega GT Special, and it’s a beauty. The car calls to mind the classic Holman Moody stock cars that circled NASCAR tracks in the late 1960′s, driven by the likes of Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney and David Pearson, who won the Grand National title in both 1968 and ’69 in a Ford Torino.

Even though it has plenty of stock-car influence, there’s nothing retro about the car’s design or powertrain, other than the fact that the engine is based on a Ford Boss 429 block.
