    Re: Auto Trader Classics Find: A Killer 1967 Mustang NASCAR GT Series Clone

    The series formed in 1968 under the name "Grand Touring" as a competitor to USAC's stock car division and SCCA's Trans Am Series.[1] It held 19 events in 1968. It was renamed Grand American after hosting 35 events the 1969 season. After running another full season in 1970, it dropped to many less events in 1971 with many event being combined with Grand National cars.[1]

    In 1972, NASCAR completely changed its structure. Winston took title sponsorship for the Grand National Series which was renamed the Winston Cup Series. All races at Grand National tracks under a 1/2 mile in length or 250 miles in event length were moved to a new division called the Grand National East Division. Grand American, Grand National (then Winston Cup), and 1969 model cars were allowed to race in the new division.[1] That series lasted from 1972 until 1973.[1] The Grand American series held four events in 1972, its final season.
