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.
