61 falcon station wagon
1961 falcon 2 door station wagon that I built in my garage over a 6 year
period. It was a basket case when I found it , rusted and wrecked. Every
part has either been replaced or restored. Every nut , bolt , gasket ,seal
etc. Nothing remains from the original car that has not been massaged in
some manner. The motor is a new crate motor from Ford rancing. 340 hp,
alum. heads , roller motor. Trans is a redone C4, rear end is from a
Grabber and rebuilt as well. Disk brakes also from the Grabber. Body was
shaved and all repaired in metal. Only bondo used was a thin skim coat for
paint. Drip rail removed, corvair fuel door added. All crome and stainless
was redone. Paint is PPG tarnished silver flake. Interior is tweed
charcoal and silver. 17" American Mags. I could go on..
