Gathering dust at one end of the main building of Holman and Moody there is an open sports car called "The Honker" that was driven unsuccessfully by Andretti a few seasons back on the Can-Am race circuit, where Chevrolet power consistently prevails. Nearby, under the same blanket of dust, there is a once-famous yellow Ford sports coupe, the first of the rare Mark IV breed to win a major endurance race.

Across from the main building there is an aircraft hangar that Holman bought surplus and had reassembled on the plant grounds. Inside the hangar there are a number of spiffy boat hulls that serve primarily as test beds for the marine conversions Holman and Moody make out of basic Ford street engines. The hangar also contains several Ford vehicles that were deliberately bashed in impact tests, as well as a few golf carts that have been dinged up a bit. The golf carts were formerly used in the main plant until employees got to horsing around, doing wheelies in the carts, like hotshot drag-strip drivers. A large part of the hangar floor space is taken up by 70 crumpled English Ford Cortinas, damaged in a freighter accident. Holman got them for almost nothing and has already sold half of them to people who want some kind of topless buggy for use off the public roads.


This is one of the crushed Holman Moody Cortinas
The car needs full restoration and it is in really good condition to build for a unique, very special car.
GT dash is cut from car / dash goes with car--
Both doors are gutted and nicely finished w/ aluminum inner panels---
I have 4 cyl ford stuff if buyer is interested in it in separate deal
The original drivetrain is not in it. Stick a lil' ford V8 in it or drop the body down on something fast and cool.
TAKE A LOOK HERE AT 38 SECONDS AND WHOLE VIDEO... these cortinas are bad!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYQKKlir6sY
