In 1965 6 stock standard 6 Cyl Falcons were driven flat out for 8 days around a twisty 2.2 mile mountain test circuit until they had completed a total of 70000 miles, aprox. 5000 laps per car. Despite 3 rollovers and a collision with a two ton rock all cars finished without mechanical beakdowns. This was a make or break stunt by Ford to show how tough the new XP Falcon was.
