Larry Beaupre was a Ford Engineer “back in the day” and purchased this Mustang new. He immediately upgraded the suspension with components not yet available to the public. Kar Kraft Engineering worked on the car was the first to prepare it for a race in 1967. One of the upgrades included the first staggered rear shock setup which would eventually make it to the high-performance model production Mustangs. Larry, along with Bill Clawson (another Ford engineer) competed in many SCCA events in the late 1960s.
It took Steve Francis 20 years before he was able to purchase the Mustang from the previous owner. Steve and his wife, Sharon, first approached R&R Motorsports at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) in September 2015 about restoring the Mustang. A month later they dropped off the car and the ground-up restoration began. It was completed in period-correct fashion and Steve has since raced in a few vintage events and entered a few car shows.
