    Falcons, like Novas, have a certain cool factor. I want to keep this thread alive even though I've
    run out of gasser-style pics. Hopefully, Deuces, who started this, won't mind me adding these. If a moderator feels the need to delete them because of the wheels, so be it. The red one was shot at Great Lakes Dragaway about 1987, the white at Cordova in 2000, I believe. Keep smiling.

  3. Mines not a gasser...heading for a Modified Production / hot little stop light car. Rims and tires will be gone and a set of M&H “muscle car” tires and some pro tracs up front, chrome reverse wheels out back and 4.5 inch Americans up front, may paint them to look magnesium. Always loved these cars

  7. I'll see your hang-on-bumpsteer-pinchin-chunks-a-foam-outta-the-seat-with-yer-ass cartoon car and raise you one low-in-the-front-high-in-the-rear-go-around-a corner hot rod falc-20160512-05.jpg falc-20160512-00.jpg
    Not trying to defend Mak Yak but I can see his point one thing is that over time what starts out as innovation for a purpose becomes a a trendy fashion and the original meaning gets lost...if you look at the old school pics not one of them is running a tire wider than 9-10" why? because that's what they had! so they sacrificed handling in the name of weight transfer...so why are all the guys building nosebleeders now running fat slicks? do you really want your car to be scary and go slower than it actually could? I guess so...... either that or it's just for looks:p if you want a fast car use slicks and six banger coils if you want a period build run 9" pie crusts and a straight axle...

  15. What a great thread, thanks for all the pics. When I was a kid in the 60s the 2 brothers across the street ran a gasser style Falcon and it was pretty cool to see them on Thursday evenings blast that thing up and down the street a few times getting ready for their weekend racing at Lions. Every time one of these gasser threads starts I hope to see a picture of their car, of course I wasn't smart enough to take one either. At the other end of our little neighborhood was the AA fuel car, Butters and Gerard, but it was the Worley Brothers Falcon that I remember best.

    I am surprised more pickup bodies were not used. I think they were awesome.

    Owned and driven by Dave Pinta, this used to be billed as "The World's Fastest Ranchero".

    I’ve done some reading about this little Ranchero. Quite the machine! 427 super high compression. If I’m not mistaken it did 200 mph back in the late 60s!!! Nucking Futz!!!!

  26. After I read your post I had to do some looking around myself, 200 mph seems pretty fantastic. I did find where it ran 11.70s in 1966 at Lions but can't find much other than that. If I'm not mistake AA fuel altered's were on both sides of 200 mph in 1969.

    He was invited to the Micky Thompson 200 mph drag race in 1965. That’s where I saw the 200mph speed. If he ran that fast or not I guess I don’t know for sure. It be cool to find out tho!?

    Dave Pinta also raced a steel bodied '67 Falcon F/C but I didn't post the pic. I figured it'd be illegal here.
