History

Chassis 35F-79-22

The Crossle has known ownership history from day one. The car was initially raced in Southern California. It was then sold to its next owner in Washington state. That owner only raced the Crossle for two years, 1999-2000. Thereafter the car was stored for the next 20 years until purchased by the current owner in 2021. 

The Crossle was restored by Frank Monise & Co. in 2022. Since then the car has competed in four events including the Crossflow Cup Formula Ford Championship as well as with VARA at Willow Springs in Southern California. The car’s most recent race was the June, 2023, Crossflow Cup race at Thunderhill Raceway Park.

Description

The Crossle is reported in excellent condition, and is professionally maintained by Frank Monise Racing. Receipts are available. The Crossle does need a new exhaust header, however. The brakes, shocks, springs, belts, etc were refreshed in 2022. New Koni shocks were also installed. The fire system is dated 1/22. 

The Ivey engine has approximately 15 hours on it. Ivey FF engines typically run about 40 hours between refreshes. Some spare gear sets are available for the Hewland gearbox. The car currently runs gears for Sonoma, Laguna, and Thunderhill. 

Spares will include a set of wheels and those spares seen in the photos. 

The Crossle is very accommodating and will fit tall drivers. 

The car is currently located in Northern California. 

If you want a competitive, current, pro-maintained Club Ford for SCCA and/or historic FF racing at an amazingly low price point, this car is it.
