That Falcon is highly engineered. I guess there is an electric wp on there somewhere.
66 Bronco-1970 250, NV3550, DSII, 4 turn ps, uncut, 1" bl, 2.5" sl, front disc, twin stick D 20, 30 x 9.50
NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

New guy? Get the Falcon Performance Handbook and Ford six high performance parts from https://vintageinlines.com

There are several other videos of this car out there. The best I've seen it run is a 12.82 ET. Looks like a pretty serious piece for sure.

while i dont read spanish, i get this gist that it is a 221 argentine powered falcon.
64 falcon
66 mustang
05 grand marquis

my mind is aglow with whiriling
transient nodes of thought
careening through a cosmic vapor
of invention
