Pack it up. Weekend’s here.
Featuring the 1971 Stroppe Ford Baja Bronco (a personal favorite of ours) towing a Caravans International “Sprite” travel trailer. Caravans Int’l was looking for a unique way to market their new and rugged travel trailer so they reached out to their local dealer who in turn reached out to Bill Stroppe. Stroppe accepted the challenge and a short time later (26 hours and 5 trailer flats later) Carl Jackson raced the Bronco AND trailer to a respectable finish at the 1971 Baja 500. p.s. Steve McQueen and Bud Ekins both saw the setup and said it would never finish the race.
