Jack Beers: '65 Ford Falcon
Jack Beers sends these pictures of his Pittman-powered 1965 Ford Falcon. Will that big motor fit under a Falcon?
No back seat drivers in Jack's car! Thanks again!

The picture is of an ebay purchase. The car was originally a real load - I bought it for the motor.
It's hard to describe what it looked like originally - suffice to say that the only parts I could
salvage for this rebuild were the front axle tube and part of the lower main frame rails - that's
why there's a "telescoping" section in them.
The motor is a Pittman 85- 6V model. The rear motor bracket came with the car, but I don't recognize
the make. The frame forward of the motor is scratchbuilt; rear wheels are very large silicones.
The car runs amazingly well for being as heavy as it is. You should hear it rrrrrrrrrumble around
a modern track! The body is an old AMT '65 Ford Falcon modified car; interior is modern Parma.
