The Holman & Moody Ford Honker II is part of the forgotten CanAm cars and funny is that everyone actually remembers its sister, the Ford F3L or P68 that was seen racing on the other side of the globe, in Europe during 1968 and 1969. Both cars were actually part of Ford Advanced Vehicles programs following the GT40 successful efforts of the previous years.
It was engined by a 377ci V8 derived from the production Windsor 351ci engine. Bored-out by Holman & Moody and fitted with a Tecalemit-Jackson fuel injection, the engine would deliver near of 600HP once fitted to the car. Transmission side, it was equipped with the common Hewland LG600 gearbox as seen in many other CanAm cars. Suspension was pretty much conventional with independent upper and lower wishbones at four corners but brakes and shock-absorbers were sort of implemented to it a unique design at the time in CanAm and only seen on the Cooper Formula One cars.
