This 1957 Falcon MKII Competition Sports Racer is a factory built race version with a Len Terry designed Terrier frame. Powered by a race prepared 997cc Ford 105E 4-cylinder paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, it was reportedly raced in period at Silverstone, Daytona, and Cumberland. Owned by the seller for 15 years, it recently underwent a complete restoration and has had only shakedown miles added since. This Falcon MKII is sold with all restoration receipts, a photographic dossier of the process, and a clean Georgia title document in the seller’s name. Falcon Shells was founded in 1956 in Essex England and produced fiberglass bodies for a variety of existing chassis as well as complete kits with a chassis and engine. Len Terry was a chassis designer who worked briefly for Falcon Shells before going on to a successful career with Lotus and Dan Gurney’s AAR team among others. Finished in British Racing Green, this works racer was restored for street use and still wears all of the original equipment with the exception of the original Smiths gauges, fuel cell and steering wheel.
The seller mentions race history consisting of an appearance at Silverstone in 1960 as well as placing 19th at Daytona and a DNF at Cumberland in 1961 as shown on the result sheet above. All receipts and photos of the restoration process will be provided.
