In 1967, Parnelli Jones, in a Holman-Moody prepped Fairlane, won the season-opening Riverside 500 road race. Then, Mario Andretti captured the Daytona 500 in a Fairlane, with Fred Lorenzen a close second in his Holman-Moody Ford. The FE again powered the 24 Hours of Le Mans winner. In drag racing, the 427 Ford Galaxie was a winner in three consecutive National Events: the '64 Indy Nationals, the 1965 WinterNationals and the 1965 Indy Nationals.

From the Private Collection of a Gentleman-Johns Island, South Carolina
The engine and transmission was built by Barrie Poole, a Canadian Drag Racer known as the Border Bandit. He and his father raced all over Canada and the US from 1966-73. Believed to have about 1000 miles on each.
A survivor example of a true muscle car from the 60's, this car is remarkable for its age; clean top to bottom, starts easily, and is fairly easy to drive despite the lack of power steering and brakes.
Some minor chips to paint; battery cut-off switch installed; Speedometer is inoperative but odometer operates correctly; soft lightweight car cover included, as well as new non factory floor mats; no apparent concerns.
