135 car
« on: May 30, 2013, 06:25:21 pm »
Does anyone know what happened to this car? I believe by the window sticker i have a copy of its car #38. I'm just curious. A local guy used to raced it and bought it new for around 3300 bucks from Stark hickey and they sponsored it. I think the OO might have the window sticker? Haven't talked to him in years. Gary

I was going thru old mags and found an article about this car. i remember it as a kid sitting on a rollback in my neighborhood. Then the OO writes an article about it with pics. I am assuming by the window sticker that car #38 was his. It was delivered to Harvey but he bought it new from Stark Hickey. Next time i run into him i'll ask for more info.

It's strange that this car came with a NON-Locking rear end.  I hope it turns up...

probably because ford knew that the racers would install their own gearsets. I think this window sticker is cool. Haven't seen a 135 one before. I hope the orig owner has this and it is the original and not a copy. Note the sound deadener delete.

    Gary ,   
         I show A.D. (Tony) Raniero as the original owner. Tony ( as you probably know) worked for Ford at the time and was "hooked up" so to speak. I believe he was a member of the famous "Fastbacks" ( Ford employee drag race group) and I think the car is still around but can't remember where or who at the moment.

Very good . Frank and Tony were partners in the car. They probably used Tony's Ford discount. Frank was running a Hipo Fairlane at the time and Tony a Comet 202 with a hipo when they "stepped" up to the plate. Believe Frank drove it. I got the first part of Frank's story here and probably the second if I go thru my mags to find the other article that he said was coming(can't remember) in our local club's newsletter. Article dated 1998.  Gary

I ran into Tony about 27 or 28 years ago at a swap meet (I think Columbus). He was selling some of the take off parts from this car. He had a flapper he said was off this car, it still had an XE part number paper tag on it. He wanted $175.00 for it, I offered $150.00. Nobody would budge. Went back several times throughout the day. Nobody would budge. I think Rick Kirk ended up buying it for 135007. NOT one of my better swap meet buying decisions.       lol

I bought a Boss 429 off a ford Eng in 1986. I gave him his price but wanted certain things. Well he offered me an early pre prod flapper. I Thought it was an AMC unit because it had a FRONT sticker on it and said "use a genuine ford air filter" also on the sticker. Factory black in color. Yellow sticker. I kept it for decades. Ed Meyer when he was over one day pegged it as early pre prod. I paid 4500 for the boss. Ben Cole got the top piece a few years ago for his Tasca car. Lets just say that was one of the better parts thrown into the deal back in 1986.  :)  In Franks article he says "I think we paid 3200 for the car".

     Gary ,
         The info makes sense. I'm on the hunt for "XE part number " log books lie the SK ones I have. XE numbers were used for everything from fan belts to flywheels and a part bearing the number isn't always " special",in most cases it's just pre production. Nice story on the flapper. I saw an ram air cleaner for a '71 with tripower ( all prototype parts) and it had a yellow tag on it as well. I am always intrigued by the "never see the light of day" parts. LOL
