This was the first time the car had been run, and was foiled by a loose
distributor cap shortly after launch. It coasted to the finish line from
about the 1/8th mile mark. The reason for the sissy burnout is that the car
was also missing reverse gear at the time.
Unfortunately, they were not able to run the car again, as it was auctioned
later that night as part of The discovery channel's "Texas Car Wars"

Crazy Falcon GT Burnout
Craziest driveway burnout in the history of burnouts.
The Ford Falcon GT is an automobile which was produced by Ford Australia
from 1967 to 1976 and 2003 to the present day with intermittent limited
edition anniversary models offered in between. Since 2003 the car has been
marketed as the FPV GT but FPV continue to release anniversary editions
commemorating the release of the original 1967 model. The Falcon GT is
inextricably linked with the history of Australian muscle car production
and with the evolution of Australian domestic motor racing.
The GT was introduced as a performance variant of the Australian Ford
Falcon XR series in 1967. GT variants were also offered in: 1968 XT, 1969
XW, 1971 XY, 1972 XA, 1973 XB models. HO (Handling Options) variants
released with XW and XY model ranges, further modified for performance and
were essentially homologation specials for motor racing. A XA version of
the HO was abandoned in the early stage of development due to public
pressure in 1972 after an infamous newspaper campaign.
After a rest of sixteen years the GT badge was revived for a 25th
anniversary edition of the 1992 EB series Falcon with a 30th anniversary
version offered in 1997 on the EL Falcon. From 2003 the GT badge was
inherited by Ford Australia's performance tuning arm, Ford Performance
Vehicles and the FPV GT has been offered continuously since 2003 on the BA,
BF (2006) and FG (2008) model ranges.
The 1967 XR series was a major shift in the evolution of the Falcon, then
still being adapted from its American counterpart for Australian release.
The car was noticeably larger compared to the XP model range. For the first
time Ford Australia offered a V8 engine on the range, the 289-cubic-inch
engine then in use on the Ford Mustang. As part of the introduction
a new high-performance version, the GT was introduced, based around the
success of GT versions of the Ford Cortina. The GT Falcon would be marketed
in exactly the same way as the GT Cortinas with the competition arm of Ford
Australia preparing production racing cars to race at the Bathurst 500. The
factory racing team, led by veteran driver/engineer Harry Firth entered two
cars, one for himself and Fred Gibson and the other for the Geoghegan
brothers, Ian and Leo. After a day long battle against three Alfa Romeos at
Bathurst in 1967, the team emerged with a 1--2 team victory which captured
the public imagination and sales figures soared. The move forced General
Motors-Holden's and Chrysler Australia to respond with their own
performance editions of their large sedan in 1968 when neither had such
vehicles planned, beginning the era of the Australian muscle car.
Over the next five years each of the three manufacturers produced faster and faster variants. Engine capacity increased,
first to 302 cubic inches displaced, then finally 351 c.i.d. Ford
introduced the HO (handling options) package in the 1969 XW model range,
essentially producing road registerable racing cars for the leading
production touring car teams to exploit. these homolgation specials reached
their zenith with the Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III in 1971, a car which Allan
Moffat used to smash all opposition in the 1971 Bathurst enduro and would
remain the fastest four-door production saloon in the world until the
introduction of the Lotus Carlton 19 years later.
A fear campaign against the homolgation specials started with headlines of
"160 MPH Street Cars soon!" led to Ford dropping production with the
planned Falcon GT HO Phase IV. For their own part, touring car racing
regulations were altered, creating the 1973 Group C regulations, which
allowed production cars to be modified for racing independently of the road
going cars, reducing pressure on manufacturers to put racing modifications
into the road cars.
A Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III was the most expensive Australian vehicle sold
at auction selling for $A750.000. A previous sale had been for $A683,650.
In 1971 a Phase III won the Bathurst 500 driven by Allan Moffat.

Ford Ranchero Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 1-5-2013
Saturday during the test and tune at barona drag strip there were four
different ford ranchero's drag racing on the 1/8 mile.In 1960 the Ranchero
became much smaller, becoming based on Ford's compact Falcon, specifically
the two-door sedan delivery variant. The popularity of small, economical
cars like the Volkswagen Beetle perpetuated a shift in thinking among the
three largest American manufacturers; 1959 would see the introduction of
the 1960 Falcon along with the 1960 Chevrolet Corvair and Plymouth Valiant.
A pickup version of the Volkswagen Bus and a van version of the Chevrolet
Corvair were offered as well. The economic recession of the late 1950s
certainly played a role as well. Ford believed the market wanted a more
practical vehicle, one much smaller, lighter and cheaper than a full-size
pickup truck, and indeed the Ranchero sold well in this incarnation. Now
marketed in print as the "Falcon Ranchero," the new vehicle's standard
powerplant was an economical 144 cu in (2.4 L) straight-6. In 1961 the 170
cu in (2.8 L) straight-6 was offered, and in 1963 the optional 260 cu in
(4.3 L) V8 was offered in addition to the 144 and 170. The two-speed
Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission (offered between 1960 and 1963) or
three-speed C4 Cruise-O-Matic could be ordered as could a three-speed
manual transmission. The Ranchero had a 800 lb load capacity.
Note that there are three almost entirely different coupé utility bodies
for this generation of Falcon: the Australian Falcon Ute differed in having
a shorter rear overhang than North American models, a cargo box that
extended farther forward than the rear window, and shorter doors; while the
Argentinian version also shared the sedan's overall length and short
"4-door" doors, adding higher and more squared-off cargo box sides.
The Ranchero evolved along with the Falcon in 1964, becoming just a little
larger along with its parent and using the same basic body style for 1964
and 1965. In 1965, the 289 cu in (4.7 L) V8 replaced the discontinued 260
and an alternator replaced the generator in all Ford cars. While
Chevrolet's El Camino used the same body from 1968 to 1972, 1970 saw a
complete restyle for Ranchero, which had started with a boxy body style.
Both the Torino and Ranchero featured a shallow-pointed grille and front
end with smooth, somewhat more curvaceous lines influence by coke bottle
styling. A fourth trim option was made available in 1970. The Ranchero
Squire (pictured) was an upmarket trim package which featured a woodgrain
applique similar to that found on the Country Squire station wagon. Like in
previous years, all Torino options could be ordered, including all-new
Ram-Air 429 Cobra Jet or Super Cobra Jet engines (7 L) with a slightly
different "shaker" hood scoop borrowed from the Mustang, so named because it was
directly mounted to the carburetor and shook with the engine at idle. Also
available was a stylish grille that featured hide-away headlamps as well as
an optional hood with an oversized scoop which was standard on Torino GTs.
The 1971 is distinguished by a grilled divided by a center section.
A minor but nevertheless important variation debuted with the 1970 model.
Prior to 1970, no Ranchero had any interior badging identifying it as such.
With the 1970 model came a "RANCHERO" or "RANCHERO GT" badge on the glove
compartment rather than Fairlane or Torino badging.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
