1965 Ford Mustang A-FX Holman Moody SOHC 427 CI Front AngleBy the time the first Mustang Fastbacks became available in September 1964, Ford and Dearborn Steel Tubing had already partially developed the template for what would become the A/FX factory racers. DST eventually built ten cars, all modified to accept the big 427 CI SOHC “Cammer” engine. Those ten cars were delivered to members of the Ford Drag Council, who worked with Ford racing director Charles Grey to further develop them with new pieces from the factory. By June the die was cast, and Grey accepted a proposal from Holman-Moody to build more A/FX Mustangs for independent drag racers. Many of the Holman-Moody cars rose to prominence matching that of the Ford Drag Council, among them this 427 SOHC-powered Fastback campaigned by Larson Ford of White Plains, New York.

1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertible Front AngleThe present owner and restorer of this good-looking 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 convertible purchased it in 1994 as it was in the process of being dismantled for restoration. While continuing the work and cataloguing the components, he realized, having discovered the encompassing contingent of correctly coded equipment, that it was almost certainly one of 96 W-30 4-speed convertibles built in 1970. The 455 CI engine bore the same serial number as the car and had the correct heads, intake and exhaust manifolds, carburetor and internals; the Force Air induction system including the twin-scooped fiberglass hood was intact, and like all W-30 4-speeds, this one was equipped with standard front disc brakes.

1967 Shelby 427 Cobra Roadster Front AngleInvoiced to Shelby American on December 14, 1966, Shelby Cobra CSX3356 was first sold to Paradise Ford of Scottsdale, Arizona, at an inventory reduction price of “$1,000 off dealer cost” and was delivered to Arizona by truck on October 2, 1967. In its original configuration it was equipped with the single four-barrel 427 “side oiler” engine and finished in Red with a Black interior. The Shelby Registry notes that its early history is unknown, but an unidentified owner in the San Antonio, Texas, area offered it for sale in the fall of 1980. The ad described “427 Cobra CSX3356. 7 aluminum wheels, 4 magnesium wheels, chrome side pipes, 200 miles on balanced, blueprinted 427 side-oiler, special competition transmission. Just painted. An exceptional Cobra for someone who is looking for JUST THAT. First time sale since 1970. Expensive – serious inquiries please.”
