1 from yesterday...

re the Falcon(s).  I interviewed Don Pike for The Shelby American.   And I also interviewed Wally Peat for the same magazine.   The Falcon Don bought(for $1) was the white Falcon originally built by Holman Moody and was confirmed to run at Daytona in I believe in '64 (at the same time H/M ran the white 427 powered Fairlane).  After the Daytona event the white Falcon went back to Charlotte and drivetrain was removed.  After the '65 Daytona event, the Shelby transporter had a spot and this car was picked up and taken to Venice and prepared by Don and his brother for West Coast sedan events--it was painted a dark shade of blue--a Packard color, and eventually white again with red accents.......the car still exists in a collection in Peru.

The Guardsman Blue Falcon, seen in the photo above, was indeed the prototype IRS car.  Wally Peat was the crew chief on this car--although, depending upon who you speak with, others have claimed that title as well.  Ford built, Shelby modified.  Tested by Miles, Ginther and Lew Spencer.  Proof on concept and the parts were transferred to a Mustang in late '64 or early '65.  The disposition of this car is unknown...possibly sent back to H/M as a Ford asset and lost to history.............

...I'd be happy to hear other points of view and history
The Guardsman Blue Falcon is still pristine and in good company (67 GT350R, 67 GT350, COBRA CSX6000 and a Cobra Daytona 50th ann.) down here in Per, but should go to sale in a couple of weeks...

I thought a very nice introduction. Welcome to the forum.


Welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the nice introduction and pictures. I didn't know the MKI 062 was for sale. Maybe it was a private sale.
The previous owner and I talked on many occasions in the past. I hope the family kept the black '67 Shelby GT350.

I'll send a follow up PM shortly on 062.

Thanks Rich!

I like the photo of your SAAC MK1. I don't know much about them so thanks for peaking my curiosity, cool car.

Thanks! indeed are cool cars!

welcome aboard  8)... the club has always stated - "enthusiasts welcome" (or something like that)

thanks! always wanted to be part of shelby club, but wanted to have a car that matched, it only took me 40 years!

Thanks for posting, and welcome to SAAC. Great cars and history !

In your two photos of the start of a race, is that the Partida de Las Seis Horas Peruanas, 1966 ? (spelling ?) The image of cars on

 track is that also the same event ?

I have the one photo, but not the one showing the drivers running to the cars, thank you !


yes! 6 horas race, number 6 is my uncle car!





You would be quite surprised the number of HiPo Ford/Shelby cars that are in Peru.

that is true, lots of gems down here...

Of the 30 production MKI's built (plus 6 prototypes), 5 were shipped to Peru, all exported at the same time.
They were the first 1992 models built.

All 5 are still in Peru.

yep, still alive and driving around...
