Cruising through the ebay listings I spotted something you don’t see every day, a 1965 A/FX 427 SOHC Mustang for sale. (Old listing, no longer available) These were special factory race cars, only 10 or 11 were built, and modified by Holman Moody for racing in the A Factory Experimental class. It has the 427 SOHC engine which was one of the engines Ford built to go after the Hemis and was built prior to their Boss 429.
I spent some time on the drag strip racing a 65 Mustang of my own just a few years after that, though certainly nothing of this caliber, but I clearly remember these cars and the effect they had on the Ford fans. Those were the days of Dyno Don, Grumpy Jenkins, Sox and Martin and so many more. Seeing this car brought all of those memories right back.
The car is expensive, last I checked the bidding is around $200,000, but it would be nice if someone with the resources to buy it actually took it out on the strip and made a few passes instead of parking it forever. This car should not gather dust till the end of time, it should make noise and go fast. We’ll see where it eventually turns up.
