After an overall win in the 1969 Mexican 1000, this Bronco was sold, raced, resold, and then retired to a Barstow, California junkyard. Half buried in sand and nearly forgotten, it was discovered by a local race fan and restaurant owner, and put on display in front of a Denny’s.

 In 2003 it was donated to ORMHOF and found its way back to Hall.

In 2015, Rod Hall pulled his championship Ford Bronco, which he won the 1969 Mexican 1000 in, from the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame’s museum in Reno, Nevada, and sent it to Samco Fabrication for a full restoration.
