I wonder if there is any coincidence with that being the last year since John Holman passed away in '75?

I suspect you might be correct~
Holman~Moody was Ford's exclusive licenced aftermarket racing engine contractor & outlet both for cars & boats up to that point in time.
HolmanMoody was very famous in all racing circles.
Perhapps after John Holman's death the exclusive contract with Ford expired ?
