FRED LORENZEN 1965 LAFAYETTE FORD GALAXIE 1/24 UNIVERSITY OF RACING
The original “Golden Boy” of racing, Lorenzen’s famous #28 Holman Moody Ford Galaxie is the latest edition to the UOR Legends lineup.

After racing stock cars in the Midwest, Lorenzen joined forces with Ford powerhouse Holman Moody in 1961 and dominated the superspeedways. Under the guidance of legendary team co-owner Ralph Moody, Lorenzen became one of NASCAR's all-time best drivers. In 1963, he became the first driver in racing to earn over $100,000 in a single season. In 1965 Lorenzen captured some of racings greatest trophy’s, including the Daytona 500, The Virginia 500 at Martinsville and the World 600 at Charlotte.
In 1998 Lorenzen was named one of NASCAR’s 50-Greatest drivers and in 2001 he was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. It won’t be long before we see “Fearless” Fred Lorenzen enshrined in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
