Did you do a search on that subject by chance? I think it's been covered pretty well.

The Strip Teaser was a local car when I was a teenager.







Here is the Dave Lyle car:




This will go good with the first photo posted of Bonner's car.



Enough for now, I had better get to doing something.

That is the Dave Lyall car. I don't remember the complete story....correct me if I'm wrong, but that body was a fiberglass prototype or pre-release show car (in 64 I assume) that Ford used. Once they were done with it, DST built a 65 A/FX race car out if it.

I've seen the car many times at the PFCA Expos and it is one of my favorite Falcon drag cars.

Whose were the "White Lightning Jr" and the black car on down? I have seen a photo of the black car before but this is a first for the White Lightning. Does anyone have any more photos of the yellow Don Havers car?

Hey Falconred.....Donny Havers was a Canadian lad out of Toronto who many times would run against Ev Rowse's "Wild Child" Falcon up this way at Cayuga Drayway and St. Thomas Dragway in the 60's. For your FYI....Donny Havers is still going and looking great at 70+ years of age....he also went on to be a pretty good bodybuilder.

I figured it was one of the Canadian cars, sure wish Ford had offered that combo here in the states. Thanks for the info.

Here are a couple of Hubert. My apologies to the photographers but I don't have a record of whose these are.

This is just after the car was brought out of storage:

It was what is called a styling buck (sp) that was used as you said as a prototype of the new '64 body style.

Could be, I don't think I have seen either of those before. The Strip Teaser ran with the bubble cut that way for a while also.

I have to say that phils 65 late version of this falcon was the baddest of them all.The times he was pulling down and to be able to compete with the altered dodges and streched mustangs at the end of the year was amazing

Ken McCellan was one of best racers in Texas with the series of McCellan Bros. Fords. The Friola, Texas based team rose to fame in this unusual Falcon. The team stuffed a 427 Ford Cammer into the altered wheelbased car. The McCellan Brothers usually ran the car on carbs and gas in C/XS, but the A/XS shown here indicates that they may have run more than gas and carbs. The little Falcon won many races until it was replaced with a new S/S Mustang. The McCellan Bros. never returned to the funny car wars, but continued racing national event winning Super Stockers. (Photo courtesy of Mike Ditty)



One bad 67. Looks like the first pick it might still have the wedge engine in it

Wild Child, 1965 Falcon A/FX. This picture is from 1966 at Cayuga race track.

The chute is a Royal Canadian Air Force item. We still have the chute on the car and were thinking of re-staging this same picture at some time.

By chance do you have more pics of the "Gold Digger" Falcon?

What model year was the GD Falcon?

Thank You.

This is my friend, Jim Cagle's Phil Bonner '64 Falcon "Georgia Peach" replica. Jim actually bought the original car from Phil in 1965 and raced it for several years. Jim built this car because neither he or Phil can find the original car. This car is an exact replica right down to the wheelbase alteration and Hi Rise 427. Jim and "Rabbit" did a great job. The car runs pretty good too!!

The photos posted of Jim's Falcon were it's one and only pass down the track so far. He lifted early and noticed a front brake pull issue. He plans to to hit the track more with it next summer. He plans to make some exibition runs with the car once the bugs are worked out.

Ken;great photos! It is crazy how the drivers back then were moving about,some with no helmet or safety clothing,or rollbars.In one of your shots Phil's head is almost hitting the windshield!Now,if Eddie would stick some HP in his 65,it might leave like this last shot!!! ROY.

Ha ha Roy! Eddie keeps thinking I'll kick the bucket, or my wife will off me, and he can have my cammer to put in his Falcon!

I hope he mans up, and builds a big FE or a cammer for his wagon project.

Ken and I figure if he stops chasing the Pin up girls, he could afford a BIG engine!

Well Eric for one Eddie dosent want to mess up his Elvis hair to go that fast.And I'm not sure with the extra LB s he put on, the poor falcon may not lift at all.But then so far all hes been able to claim is a half of an inch.Funny I looked at the same photo and I didnt see it.

Roy I know he wants to put more horse in his,It kills him watching all the guys out there in Bakersville.I keep telling him to crank that engine up.

Your right Eric he needs to lay off those pin up girls and get focused.

Happy new year Fast Eddie

Roy It is amazing how they raced back then.Suprising more people didnt get hurt.Ecspecially the way they were pushing the envelope back then.Check out this nascar photo.Window down, no window net, short sleave shirt, no glasses, bumper to bumper at about 135 mph.cool stuff.

I'm the same way.Give me a nostalgic event or vintage racing over anything they have today.It all looks the same.There was a pic in a 70's hot rod mag showing at least 30 different funny cars lined up to compete,Compaired to today were its the same ,what, 8 cars every week.

Roy, if we didn't beat on Eddie, he would feel like an outcast. He has some real cool cars, and he is a ton of fun, but when he hands you a loaded gun.... One must pull the trigger!

I told him to stop being a puss, and build thta Cyclone into and AFX'er, and put his speed shop on the map!

I'm with you Falconred I wish I was there watching that race.Can you imagine the match race best out of three.I'm sure there was a fair share of behind the scene jawing going also.

I think that the Strip Teaser sneaked in there with short injectors before Platt. Look at the front of the bubble on the Strip Teaser, it has been opened up. They ran it that way for a while before going to the taller injector stacks.

WF;I think there is one or two on the 64 and 65 Comet thread.I have an article here if I can find it.Basically it was a 1/4 elliptic leaf spring with a mount on the frame and a mound on the lower A-arm.They came up with that for more engine bay room. ROY.

Default 1964/65 Ford Falcon A/FX Pics!

The first image is the front end on the Wild Child as installed over the winter of 65-66 by Rankin Ford. They used a 39 Ford front axle and elliptical spring. Somewhere in the early 70's, disk brakes from a Ford truck were added. In 1966 it was offset about 12" forward from stock when they ran the 427 wedge in the stock position. For 1967, when the SOHC motor was installed set back, the front end was brought back 4" leaving ti still about 8" forward of the stock position.

The rear end was slid forward on rear springs 8" and a beefy set of traction bars built. It has an air bag on the right side.

When they came out with the re-issue altered wheel base model car series. There was a re-print of an article on the quater-eliptic style front suspension in the box of the Falcon models. It showed pictures of the parts broken down. The spring had a ball socket type pivot in the front. It shows pretty detailed shots of Phil Bonner's Falcon. Hope this helps!!!!

Falconred:

Yes, that is my car as it appeared when new during shakedown runs, before lettering. This car originally had Real Halibrand Mag Wheels, but I had to reverse the rear wheels to get the slicks inside the fenders. (We did not have the connections to get custom axles yet, to narrow the rear housings) This car was originally a styling buck built from molds from the original styling clay model. The body was rescued from the crusher, and built into an AFX car with the help of my Ford and DST connections, using a 427 Hi-Riser. (Charlie Gray, Paul Harvey and Bill "Hammer" Mason and more) At the Indy Nationals in ’65 with a Hi-Riser engine, in the AFX 1/4 final I lost to Gas Rhonda's Cammer Mustang, and Gas lost to Les Ritchey’s Cammer Mustang in the final.
My sponsor had business issues and wanted out, so the car was sold to the Catron Brothers at the end of the '65 season, and I continued to drive the car for them on the NASCAR drag circuit in 1966. We simultaneously held two NASCAR records with the car in 1966, U/S 5 with the Hi-Riser engine and U/S 4 with the SHOC engine. (U was to signify Ultra) We built a 1967 Fairlane over the winter, racing at Daytona for the NASCAR Winternational Drag Races. The Fairlane kept the Halibrand wheels, only we did not need to turn them around using a Mustang Housing under the Fairlane Body. The Falcon was then sold again to Dennis German, who painted it blue and named it "Hard Times" racing it in the Detroit Area until 1972.
The Falcon was sold once or twice more before Brett Hyjak picked it up for his collection. The car had been reworked extensively since new including gutting and installation of a straight axle in front, and although Brett repainted the car as it was in 1965, he did not restore it back to its period-correct AFX chassis and interior condition.
Attached are pictures of me with the car at a NASCAR Drag Race in 1966, as it is today, and my '67 Fairlane which replaced it. Dave Lyall

Mr Lyalls, or Dave if I may call you that, I thank you very much for replying, I have been following your posts on the Thunderbolt topic. You are a very interesting poster and able to add some facts along that I haven't heard before. Keep posting your remembrances, all subjects are welcome to me.

I enjoyed that era, I was a early teen when it started and grew up watching. I remember the first time I watched the Strip Teaser leave the line and the first time I smelled the fumes when the cars started using fuel mixes. The Falcons were my favorite cars and I was finally able to get one while in college in '67 or '68, it was a '65 2-door HT, 289 4-speed and was the same color as yours.

In '63 I had helped some with a local SS called "Bad News" that was Bonner's old '62 HT car that he built using the lightweight parts from the wrecked car he had first. I think it was his match race car and he had another lightweight for SS. There was a '62 409 Chevy and a 426 wedge car that were regulars at the local strip. I enjoyed watching the progression of the cars through the '63 lightweights, the Thunderbolts then to the FX cars. Things weren't the same after the flip-tops came out. I am glad that the factorys soon saw the need to go back to SS racing.

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.

Attached is an article of the 427 SOHC powered BALKANS AWB 1965 Falcon two door sedan as taken from Drag Strip magazine Oct 1967. What I found interesting is the use of rear suspension "Coil Overs" in lieu of leaf springs. Of concern is the following:

1) Would rear suspension Coil Overs allow the use of wider slicks?

2) Would rear suspension Coil Overs yeild quicker ET's over leaf springs?

3) Would rear suspension Coil Overs in lieu of leaf springs handle better on a street A/FX build

4) I have more original 60's scans of rear suspension Coil Overs. Please let me know if you want me to start a A/FX 60's thread of rear suspension Coil Overs.

Dan, Good to hear from you, everything going alright other than the computer I hope. How did you do at the Texas Thaw? When are you all coming this way? Tell all hello for me.

Snowing big time in Blairsville right now and it don't look like it's going to stop any time soon.

I'll tell Gopher and Don I caught up with you.

1st pass was a handful,car all over the track.Mark rolled out way before finish line.Track was cold,but when the sun go higher,track got better.Next 2 passes much better,car left with 2 feet of air,and with about 8 or 9 passes on the engine rebuild,the engines finally starting to come around,the rings are starting to set better,less smoke.

The down side,Mark did a tune on Jims 55 Chevy(picked up .35),put some good gas in it,and let Jim beat him twice.1st pass,Jim won by inches,and 2nd in Elems,the Ford ran too fast,broke out.Jim got to leave 1st though,and Mark did catch him.

Say howdy to Gopher,n Don,and don't eat too much snow ice cream

That's a beautiful build, my model making was never that good.

I've got one of these but I will never be able to build it, Bonner signed the cellophane so I can't or wont open it. I also have one of Brannon's Mustang the same way.

For all of those wondering the ford boys falcon was from south bend in was an original fx falcon from dick brennan. It was bought by stan rohrig and dennis traub. It was raced mainly in the midwest. The car had a mt 427 aluminum hood, doors, fenders, and trunk lid.

I was wondering about that.Ive been watching a DVD from Jim Amos called York Super Sixties.In there is some footage of that car running at the super stock nats Aug 65.A couple different shots and some runs.Car looks great.
