Nice looking 65
Bonner's '65 before paint. Phil told me he had a match race booked with Sox at Cecil Co. and the car wasn't painted. They thrashed to get it running and took off for MD. He lost 2 of 3 because the suspension wasn't dialed in but he said he could run with Ronnie on the big end. He knew he had a good new car!! They then took it back to Charolette so they could paint it at Holman Moody.
I crewed on the romy hammes car but no pics, sorry. The car was restored locally about 15-20 yrs. Ago. I think it ended up in the boyd coddington collection.:d
Just falcon around!
Check out the 64-65 comet thread.Nice cyclone
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
The shaker is on here, but not this photo. Great thread.
Here are a few more......
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.

One bad 67. Looks like the first pick it might still have the wedge engine in it
nice looking 64
Another nice 64
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.
This is the Wood Larkin B/FX Falcon, one of the three B/FX cars built by Ford of Canada.
By chance do you have more pics of the "Gold Digger" Falcon?
What model year was the GD Falcon?
Don Snyder has the Brannan Falcon in his collection . The car is now in Ohio.
The Gold Digger was a 65 B/FX car, one of the three FX built at Ford of Canada.
I have no other pics of that car but woul dreally like to see some.
Ken;that white Falcon is now Red.It belongs to Stan Blosk,runs A/Gas with a LARGE 385 series engine.The Falcon was originally powered by a FE but has been evolving over the years to a full tube chassis car.I have known Stan for many years,cool guy. ROY.
It looks good white,I like the stance in these pics.do you have pics of it red?Did he change his lettering?
Great pics, these are the inspiration of my falcon
I'll try this again
Ken;I will have to look for pictures of Stan's Falcon,not sure I have any since he painted it. ROY.
Some bracket falcons.
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!!
Here are a couple more photos of Jim's car at the York US 30 show, 2009.
Hey eddie how about this gasser falcon.
Heres some more pics of that falcon.Very nicely done.How well did it run?Looks good
Bonus pic of the original.
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.
