Overview:

 

In the "Total Performance" days of the early 1960's, Ford decided that it needed to spice up the image of the “somewhat stodgy” Falcon.  The Falcon Sprint V8 was selected to compete in the 1963 Monte Carlo Rally and did so with modest results.  For 1964 Ford pulled out all the stops to build a dominant rally winner.  This car was one of the10 constructed, and was driven by Graham Hill.  Afterward it enjoyed a long and varied career in British Saloon car racing before becoming a vintage racer.  This car is an important combination of history and brutal performance.

History

 

  • Very well documented

  • One of 10 cars built from new shells for Ford by Alan Mann Racing for the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally

  • Cars were homologated with fiberglass everywhere except for roof, so legally lighter than a Mustang.

  • Driven in Monte Carlo rally by Graham Hill (as documented by Alan Mann in a report on file.)

  • Cars all went back to Alan Mann racing and this one was subsequently built by them into a Group 5 BSCC (British Saloon Car Championship) racer and sold to Roy Pierpoint.

  • Pierpoint drove car with much success (extensive race history in file) until selling car to Martin Birrane in 1969.

  • Birrane races car in late 1969 with limited success.

  • Birrane sells car to Martin Thomas in '70's.  Thomas holds car for a while and then in 1990's has it comprehensively rebuilt by Cambridge Motorsports in the UK.

  • Thomas sells to Ken McBride, Seattle WA, who imported the car into the US.

  • Current owner purchased from McBride.

Condition

 

  • The car is in excellent mechanical condition, the engine produces well over 500 hp. with good compression & leakdown numbers.

  • Engine is 351. We have been told by Thomas that the current engine was in the car when it arrived from Birrane.  There IS a race report on file that shows the car running at 5.7-liter capacity in the British Saloon Car Championship.

  • As built by Mann for Pierpoint (BSCC Group 5, 1966-69), the car would have had a 289 with dual quads and Weslake heads.

  • Front suspension is control arm and coil over.  

  • Rear suspension is Ford 9-inch with four link and watts link.  

  • Discs at all corners.
