Rankin Ford's "The Wild Child" 427 SOHC Falcon

I saw this car at the 2010 East Coast Camaro Club's car show at DeSantis Chevy in Brockton, MA. I have no idea if it is the real deal, but it appears so, other than the missing original dash, different hood and induction, or the exact paint job. It is a Ford Falcon drag car with a rare 427 cu. in. SOHC FE engine, done by Rankin Ford in London, ON Canada. Current owner is from MA. Pump up the volume and enjoy.

427 SOHC Cobra ERA Cammer 427 Cobra
See Test Drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxYWJr-zNak 1965 427SC Cobra E.R.A. Replica 427 S.O.H.C. (Cammer) ERA one-of-a-kind Shelby Cobra replica built for its original owner. This E.R.A. 427 Cobra features a newly refreshed 427 S.O.H.C. (Cammer) with original Ford SOHC cast iron block (correct oil drain-backs), Steel stroker crank, Eagle H-beam rods, and Ross pistons yielding 480 cubic inches. Compression is about 12.5:1. Including RARE original Ford aluminum SOHC heads from drag racer Les Ritchey. These heads were only given to a few racers by Ford, so they are exceedingly rare. Recently installed new streetable Comp Cams including new correct lash caps for the non-adjustable rockers. This is critical to the valve train reliability of the Cammer. A single 4V intake with Holley Dominator carburetor. Custom built Top loader transmission by Dan Williams features BIG-Input/BIG-output WIDE-ratio gears, hydraulic slave clutch set-up, competition adjustable suspension, RARE original Halibrand magnesium knock-off wheels (with as-raced patina), fuel cell, dual rear-mounted Optima batteries, Smiths gauges, blacked-out treatment, on-board fire suppression system. Jaguar rear-end with a 3.31:1 ratio. Extensive planning and engineering has gone into this Cobra's chassis which is displayed by its superb detailing. Special fabrication and installation of the 427 SOHC in the car was done by Bob Frontino San Dimas, CA. It's a balancing act to mount this power plant in a Cobra chassis as witnessed buy the finished results. The engine was built by Performance Associates (of racing heritage, Les Ritchy) in San Dimas, CA. (recently closed shop after 55 years in business). As mentioned before the rare aluminum Cammer heads were Les Ritchy's and purchased from Performance Associates for this build. The Cobra only has 1,146 pampered street-driven miles (much less on engine) by one owner. Displays surprisingly great street manners. It is a blast to drive with an awesome Exhaust note. Body and paint are impeccable! An amazing turn-key sorted out Cobra that cannot be duplicated for the asking price! For those not familiar with ERA Replicas you can read about them on their website here: http://www.erareplicas.com/427/427sc.htm Additional high quality pictures can be found here:http://s1293.photobucket.com/user/1965ERACobra/library/ We installed new Comp billet cams at 4 degrees advance and refurbished the rocker arms. New lash caps at .020" round out the package. One sweet 427 engine in an ERA AC Cobra, nothing like a 427 SOHC Cammer in a 2200 pound Cobra! This video was shot in HD with a GoPro Hero2 camera.
