Ford's second-generation Falcon, launched in 1964, never really stood a chance against its glamorous sibling, the Mustang, and even the Sprint Package, introduced in late 1964, which provided the Falcon with a 260ci V8, stiffer suspension, and a louder exhaust couldn't drag customers away from the similarly equipped 'new kid in town' so Falcon Sprint production prematurely ceased in 1965. However, properly prepared, the Falcon Sprint was a very effective competition car and became a proven race winner in the US. British racegoers were denied a close look at the Falcon, however, until a couple of years later in 1967 when the British Saloon Car Championship changed to less restrictive, Group 5 regulations.

Offered here is a Terry Drury Racing FIA Ford Falcon Sprint built as a replacement for their first very successful Falcon Historic Touring Car build. It incorporates all the know-how gained in campaigning the previous car at the top level of historic motorsport during and achieving several outrights wins in 2017 in Masters events. It has a current FIA/MSUK Historic Technical Passport valid until 31.12.2029 relating to Class CT10 and Period F–1962 to 1965 (Competition Touring Cars) and is eligible for all Pre-66 touring car races around the world including the Masters, HSCC and HRDC. It has been built to a very high standard with fastidious attention to detail by a well-renowned race outfit with only running in testing. A complete change of plan allows this race-ready Falcon to be available today.

The original shell was blasted and any remedial strengthening addressed before a bespoke full cage by 'Custom Cage' was fabricated conforming to all current MSA/FIA regs. The bodywork is full fibreglass which has bee integrated into the original shell and it's finished in Ford Motorsport White to a very high standard.

The engine is a fully FIA compliant 289 cu.in. Peter Knight V8 which has only completed two test sessions and the gearbox is a new T10 with the same test miles. All the fuel equipment is obviously new with an in-date ATL fuel tank and the exhaust is custom-built with carefully designed manifolds. The braking system is entirely new and the differential has only covered the initial test distance.

Built by a professional race team, this superbly crafted Falcon will definitely be a front running car in the right hands and represents great value for a very competitive package.
