    Re: 1967 Mustang Wins East African Safari Classic Rally

    Now this is fantastic. It it almost impossible to believe that this is the first big time rally victory for a Mustang. It is amazing that Ford didn't back the early Mustangs on the international rally scene. They certainly had the goods to make it a successful bid.

    Maybe somebody here knows about the success rate of the Falcons that the factory campaigned on the European rally circuit in 1963 and 1964. Did they ever win. I was thinking that they possibly won the Monte Carlo rally, but am not sure.

      I did a little Googling and found that in 1963 a Falcon Sprint placed first in class, but not first overall. I couldn't find anything about the results in 1964.

        Looks more like a '68, folks.

          Possible that those cars sold on the African continent could have used left over '67 US sheet metal?

          Entry form says '67.
