Anyone know about this one?
these cars are the reason i almost bought a falcon when i was 15....ended up getting my 65 Comet instead...its been 15 years now...wow
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:
This is "back in the day" as my kids say:
I've never seen a teardrop hood opened up like that. I wonder if this is the same car?

I dont know if they are the same outfit but in denver there was a ford boys race team sponsered by bill goodro ford.they had matching 64 fairlane and 65 mustang fastback
Where are all these pictures coming from? Nice job!
Gotta love the Falcons!!!!
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'll second that thought.....great pictures.......hope there's more.
