ACME A1805210 – 1/18 Scale Jerry Titus #26 1968 Pontiac Trans AM Firebird Tribute Diecast Scale Model Replica
Jerry Titus was at the apex of his racing career at the end of the sixties, having helped capture SCCA Trans AM titles Carroll Shelby’s Mustang effort in 1966 and, more notably, in 1967, when he won four rounds of the fiercely fought contests. The following season, however. was not kind to Titus, as reliability issues limited him to a single victory and there was growing tensions between him and Shelby. Late in the 1968 season he announced he would be leaving Shelby at year’s end to partner in a new Pontiac race effort with Canadian Terry Godsall. Shelby responded by firing Titus. Titus then ended up at the 1969 24 Hours of Daytona with a fully prepared Trans Am race car which was once a Camaro but now wearing the panels from Pontiac’s Firebird! By the end of the those 24 hours, Titus and co-driver Jon Ward would earn the top spot in their class and third overall behind a pair of Lola T70s. After Daytona the car would never run again in an American series. Daytona also would be the last time Jerry Titus won a race.
