A high-performance restomod with a 427-cubic-inch “Cammer” V8 and a C4 automatic transmission, this tasteful-yet-wild Ford Falcon is motivated by a stunning 700 horsepower. The engine was built by Knoxville, Tennessee-based shop Barillaro Speed Emporium, and boasts a new block, head, crank, and rods, and dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors each flowing 600 CFM through an aluminum plenum. Ignition is handled by an MSD distributor, Blaster Coil and ignition wires, and reliable cooling is assured by a heavy-duty aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.
However, lest we assume that this vintage Ford Falcon Sprint restomod is purely about straight-line speed, the Mecum website also lists a smattering of handling-related upgrades – custom A-arm front and 4-link rear suspensions, adjustable coilover shocks, and Wilwood brakes – to help the car achieve some competence on the road. The rear of the car was modified to accommodate massive, 15-inch-wide rear tires to transfer the engine’s mighty torque to the pavement.
Mecum anticipates that this 19631/2 Ford Falcon Sprint restomod will sell for between $100,000 and $125,000 when it goes up for bidding. Be sure to tune in on Saturday, January 14th to find out.
