    Though built for racing, Holman and Moody's chopped and sectioned (3"x3") '62 Falcon, (Edit), "Challenger ",
    toured with the Ford Custom Car Caravan.

    Here is a great shot of the custom bodywork underway; showing the section job, as well as the wooden buck for hand forming the aluminum fastback.

    I posted this on another thread, but it's too nice not to be seen here.

  4. This actually is a '62. H-M wanted to try racing one, but the stock boxy roof on the '60-62 models had too much lift at speed so this was their answer. The arrival of the '63 with the fastback top eliminated the need, so development went no further. H-M did back-door work with some privateers on fielding some Falcons and Comets through '64 (who had some success, with reports that the Falcon actually handled better than the Mustang in trans-am), but Ford was saving it's big promotions for the coming Mustang, so the Falcon program at Ford died.

    Thanks, Crazy Steve. I'll correct that.

  18. The fastback on the Holman Moody falcon always looks so awkward to me . The idea of a fastback is sure nice though, just not that one.
