Great looking ride. In the north america this was known as a Falcon. But you already know that. Like the rear window "blindes".

No cage - but 10 second passes?

Doesn't ANDRA state you gotta have a Cage for runs below 10.99?

I had the same thoughts about a cage. My brother destroyed a 64 Plymouth Max Wedge in 1968 when a tie rod end broke in the lights at Lions Drag Strip. His time slip said "11.27 @ 127mph". Left turn into the guard rail from the right lane before getting center-punched by his competitor. He was mighty glad to have had a 4-point roll bar in it.

Very nice car. I had a '68 Falcon with 351 Cleveland, Holley double-pumper, and manual body C4. Same big and little Centerlines too, but no bottle. Mine was dark blue with black Mustang interior. It was a sweet little car, and I can't find a single picture of it now. Thanks for sharing yours.
