$1,000,000 1971 Ford XY Falcon GTHO Phase 3 currently owned by Paul Carthew
who also owns one of the four XA GTHO Phase 4 race prototypes. Is this the
best original unrestored PH3 in the world?
New 417ci CHI engine (351 cleveland drag)
This is my new 417ci CHI cleveland based ford. On 98 octane pump fuel with
out of the box heads,manifold and 1050 dominator carb it went 682hp @7k and
Nothing exotic or trick other than a solid roller camshaft. This was the
virgin startup and never got a vid of a pull sorry. Going into a 3550lb XD
351 Cleveland in 55 Ford : Nasty Cam + BIG exhaust = MUSIC
Spotted this old '55 Ford, pretty straight, but obviously no minty garage
queen original or fancy restored show car. Hmmm... cop wheels & fat
traction bars? Tracked down owner, talked '55s for a bit (had a black Vic
way back when) & asked him if he'd mind popping the hood for pix.
Him "OK, but first whatcha think's in there?"
Me "Uh, 272, 292, maybe 312 Interceptor?"
Him "Nope, that was long ago. Put a built 390 in there, blew it up. Built a
427, blew that up too. This is a *real* motor here. 351 Cleveland, son."
Me "OK... Wouldn't wanna fire that up, would ya?"
Too bad I didn't get a clip when he barked the tires on the way out of the
lot, heh heh.
