“Ohio” George Montgomery was one of the first superstars in NHRA Drag Racing history.  Montgomery won the prestigious U.S. Nationals four times (1959, 1960, 1963, and 1969) and set numerous speed and e.t. records in several cars during his illustrious driving career. He was a pioneer, innovator, and mechanical genius who often fabricated his own parts, starting as far back as the 1950s.
In 1966, “Ohio George” Montgomery joined the Ford Racing team and helped develop and test the new 427ci SOHC Hemi engine. In 1967, Ford convinced him to switch to a Mustang body that could be found in their dealerships—as the saying goes, “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday.” Montgomery agreed, and parked the 1933 Willys in favor of the more aerodynamic 1967 Mustang body, which had a 6-71-blown 427ci SOHC Ford engine between the framerails. The ‘Stang set five NHRA national records and won Super Eliminator at the 1969 Spring Nationals in Dallas.

Two years later, Montgomery debuted the Mr. Gasket Gasser at the 1969 U.S. Nationals. This was a one-off 1969 Mustang Mach 1 handcrafted fiberglass body from the Ford Drag Racing program and was powered by a twin-turbocharged Boss 429 engine. The car set numerous speed and e.t. records and won Super Eliminator at the 1969 U.S. Nationals, as well as victories at the 1973 and 1974 Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.
