Historical Context:

In 1965, Holman Moody embarked on an ambitious project to push the boundaries of drag racing. Their target was the Factory Experimental (A/FX) class, a hotbed of innovation and performance. Holman Moody built 10 altered wheelbase A/FX Mustang Fastbacks, specially modified to bring Ford to the forefront of this cutting-edge drag racing category.


Eight of these 10 machines were powered by the monstrous 427 SOHC (single overhead cam) engines. This motor, often referred to as the "Cammer," was a high-performance, racing-specific power plant that was renowned for its horsepower potential. The remaining two cars were fitted with the 427 Hi-Risers, another high-performance engine that had already made its mark in drag racing.


The A/FX Mustangs were wildly successful, with their performance on the strip proving the potency of Ford's and Holman Moody's engineering prowess. They served as Ford's contenders in a thrilling era of drag racing, where factory-backed teams pushed the limits of speed and technology.


This 1/18th scale replica of the A/FX 652 is an essential addition to the collection of any drag racing aficionado or diecast model enthusiast.  This beautifully rendered model allows you to own a piece of the incredible legacy of Holman Moody's contributions to motorsport history.
