63.5 ford falcon sprint rally car

Hi guys,

I thought I might share some pics of my 63.5 Falcon Sprint. I have been working on turning the car into a replica of the 1963 Geneva Rally winning Sprint. These were truly fantastic cars that participated in some of the greatest drives of all time, most importantly Bo Lungfeldt's drive at the 63 Monte Carlo Rally where he won all 6 six special stages on twisty French Alpine roads covered in snow and ice. In 63 the Falcons won the Geneva and Tulip rallies and had class wins at the Alpine and Shell 4000 rally. Pretty amazing for Ford's first major foray into European rallying! The rally cars were built by Holman Moody and then shipped out to England for final preparation.

The car has a 331, 9.5:1 compression, Tremec 5 speed , 9"rear end and discs all around. On the dyno it made 456hp at 6600rpm so it performs really nicely. It exits via Porter mufflers which sound just fantastic. Really deep and throaty, fairly mellow at idle and cruise, but at open throttle it just roars. Suspension upgrades include front and rear Konis, panhard bar and sway bar so it handles really nicely. Hope you guys like the car so far.

Hans

Beautiful car, wish I had bought a falcon instead of a Galaxie haha. I've read and seen pictures of a pretty cool black 63.5, it had the number 5 on the door, another very cool Falcon. If you have a chance please post up more pics, can never get enough of these cars.

Nicely done! If I recall Ford/Holman Moody, prep'd some big Galaxies for rallying too, I;ve got some pics somewhere from a racer friend in Birmingham, who rallied a Cortina's, hot little 4 banger!
Any vids; of her running, would love to see em!
Love it!

Good eye Raggoon, alfa, bimmer, but, the black sedan, looks more, like a late 30's early 40's ford, unless my eye operation has me outa wack.

Re: 63.5 ford falcon sprint rally car

Hi guys,

Thanks so much for liking the car. It has been a great project and is tremendously good fun to drive.
Here are a few more photos of the car. The weather has been pretty bad here in Connecticut, but this weekend should be bright and sunny so I'm hoping to take some in-car videos to capture the sound.

That indeed is a Lotus Cortina in the background of the previous picture. Its a 1965 model and one of less than 200 left hand drive cars ever made. Its fantastic fun to drive and allows me for just a second to pretend I'm Jim Clark or John Whitmore.
