Dave Lyall question - Did you sell the 67 Fairlane to Harold Schnarr from Lewistown, Illinois? I saw it run many times. It was an awesome Ford. I remember the first time I saw it run was a match race with the 57 Chevy "Shake, Rattle, and Run" from Chicago. The Fairlane won.

TRONEEW:

Yes, Harold Schnarr bought my '67 Fairlane shown in the clip, in early 1968. He was at a Gas Funny Car Show in the Peoria Area which I won against altered wheelbase injected Funny Cars using a standard wheelbase, carbureted car and he was so overwhelmed he had to buy the car and would pay any price. I already had received my '68 Cobra Jet Mustang which was originally intended for only NHRA SS/G, and intended the Fairlane for NASCAR and AHRA heads-up Super Stock Cars. Harold made me an offer I could not refuse, and I let him have the car. Until I built my '69 Mustang I used my spare Fairlane Tunnel Port engines in the otherwise legal S/S '68 Cobra Jet for NASCAR and AHRA heads-up races, even winning a few of them against Hemi Cuda's, Darts, and 427 Cameros. Harold raced my old Fairlane for a couple years until he finally blew the engine. He ended up selling the car, and I understand it is in the Northwest Area. That Fairlane was arguably my most successful race car, as I cannot remember ever being defeated in class, and held the class ET and MPH records in both NASCAR and AHRA all the time I owned it. In addition, I actually made money while campaining the car, something hard to do without a major Dow-Jones top 100 sponsorship. Attached is a picture of my Cobra-Jet, which was also very successfull in both NHRA S/S and NASCAR. Dave Lyall

Here is an entire four page article taken in 1965 of the 1965 Falcon "Georgia Shaker" of Hubert Platt. What an awesome machine!

1) Note the absence of a Roll Bar.
2) Note the Back Seat is left installed!
3) Note the 1964 model year "Sprint" tail panel shield.
4) This was the early stages of the "Georgia Shaker" of Huber Platt. Later he was to drive a straight axle AWB variant of a 1965 Falcon.

Thank You!

This is the SAME car as the AFX Georgia Shaker III. Built by Hubert himself - when Ford refused to give him a Cammer motor - he decided to beat up on them with a 427 FE. This car was modified later that year to Altered Wheelbase with a narrowed Econoline Van staight axle- a custom set of Hilborn injectors on a Holman Moody GT-40 Weber intake - The custom Doug's Headers and Cragars were also added along with a roll bar. Stripped down to fighting weight and with a healthy dose of Nitro - Hubert took on all comers with the the Falcon at Lyons and he put most of them back on the Trailer - including the Cammer guys.

I think Hubert built three Falcons, two for himself and one for Tommy Neely.
