I asked a question about an old Holman-Moody ad I found in the back of the August 1960 HRM, and this was posted as part of the reply.
I wonder what the H-M "Power Pack" was?
That 60 Falcon is a H/M clone. The real one (if my memory serves me right) crashed & caught on fire. This one was cloned by Charles????? i cant remember his last name,& Larry Miller from Midland NC.
I think the H/M power pack was intake, 3 one barrels ,cam, headers. This car also has a 4 speed .
Done right? How about done a couple bubbles off plumb?
Heres mine Aussie 1964 XM Sedan, 289 Windsor, 3 Speed Toploader,
has anyone removed the drip rails from there falcon at all? was looking at mine last night and i'm thinking about doing it, just wondering if it's a huge project, or just easily cutting them off. any help would be great. thanx in advance, and keep it up with the awesome inspirations!
Made a video for you guys to check out! let me know what you think.
need to get some more pics up. put some scallops on her a month ago.
Taken a few years ago
those hood scoops are so ugly.
I think I missed the mark by about 70 pages, but here's mine.. '65 with a 200ci, got three core plugs, kind of funky for a '65, but I'm hopefully gonna put a V8 in it and have a badass sleeper.

here you go 61 falcon/144 for now shaved mirror, door handles and gas fill. left he key locks alone for now. thinking about doing a bigger inline or 289 not sure yet. just blew the tranny last week, so looking for another here are some pics for you
Did you pick this one up just like that? cause I think I saw this one a few years ago at a falcon show in Bakersfield...
yes sir I got lucky and picked this one up as you see it, but i still love it. going to change her up a little eventually
Lots of nice falcons on here, great to see so many falcon guys!!

cartcoupe36;is that a one piece body,or did you just weld the seams?Nicely done whichever way you went!It looks to nice to be rubbin paint! ROY
it's not my car,a friend of mine built the car for vintage races. his name is randy mcconnell. he's working on an old skeeter now will post pictures soon. also have a good friend with a original 55 chevy that raced at the old peach bowl in atlanta , that he an randy redone will post as soon as i get some pics.
cartcoupe36, being from the Atlanta area you may recognize the cars I posted, the Sonny Baswell #44 car ran at Dixie and West Atlanta and the Bobby Panter # 96 car ran around the N GA area.
Here is another area car, I don't have a name for the driver.
i think this guy raced with some folks in canton, jerry woods an some friends. i think this guy's name was james something, not much help, huh.
It's beautiful. What year is it? I'm not familar with the Aussie models.
It is fun to notice the differences in Falcons from Australia vs the USA. One thing isn't different however, the Futura radio-delete plate. That must be the rarest part on the whole car.
