This 1955 Ford F100 was raced by Tom Haliburda and my father, John Gerdes, in the 1971 Norra 1000. After the race, it was converted back into a shop truck for the rest of the 70’s and into the mid-80’s. It’s been parked about 35 years. Tom’s son gave me the truck earlier this year to restore. I’m going to make it look like how it raced in 1971 as much as possible. I will post updates occasionally but my goal is 1-2 years.
