Description

It is hard to believe that in 1964 the Ford Falcon was the smallest car that Ford USA could sell to you. And obviously nobody would have ever predicted that it would become such a serious contender in Saloon car racing in Europe.

Back in the sixties Ford Motorsport & Holman and Moody must have been among the smartest of all factory teams in homologating their racecars.

FIA/ACUSA homologation # 1250 specifies a weight of just 980KG and was cleverly based on a totally stripped, and fiberglass bodied Dragrace version of their compact family Saloon. Holman and Moody of Nascar fame built a few for Alan Mann Racing and when Bjo Lungfled came second overall in the Monte Carlo Rally, Saloon car teams all over Europe realized that a 289ci V8 and the featherweight Falcon body could be very competitive on the racetrack too. Today Ford Falcons are capable of outright wins in all pre ‘66 Historic touring car championships.

This exceptional Falcon has been prepared by Swedish Specialist Lars Esselius in 2009. In recent years she has been raced by a prominent driver in The Dutch Historic Touring Car Championship. Maintenance and a very recent rebuild have been performed by Tachyon Motorsport of The Netherlands who are among the very best in Europe.

The car is arguably the fastest FIA Falcon in Europe and lapped Zandvoort in a whopping 2’03”. The completely new & legal full race engine produces 398 BHP @ 6800 rpm and 433 NM of torque.

The spec of the car is outstanding and only the best parts are used.
