This "garage find" Falcon was just acquired by a friend of mine - admittedly, its not some sough after hot rod - but the extremely nice, original condition it was found in after being garaged for 27 years is rare these days. Almost 50 years old! After only minor maintenance and a gas tank flush, this car is back on the road for rare occasions. He currently is debating wether to keep the car or pass it along to someone who may enjoy it even more....
1948 TUCKER # 10 Drager's International Classic Sales
This is the "barn find" of the year. The Tucker has been sitting in the
garage for over 40 years. Last Licensed in California in 1965. As you look
at the photos you will see front end damage. Seems the Tucker rolled down
the driveway through the garage door. This was in California. The Tucker
was bought in Aug 1956 in Cal from a Motor Trend ad! Was last driven in
1957, only 603 miles & parked. Now has 9,819 miles. Flat towed to Auburn
down the grapevine in California. The Tucker was heavier than the vehicle
towing it! Historical data from Alex Tremelis, tucker designer, claims the
car #1010, went 134 mph at Bonneville in 1952, also has a special 431 gear
ratio. The bumpers were off the car, I do not know why. Maybe to repair
the Tucker? It is a very solid car. The mice, as you would think, made a
home in the Tucker. It was crusty on the underside. The owner would run off
anyone trying to see the Tucker. Harold LaMay, the largest collector car
owner in the world, tried to buy it but was not even allowed to see it. I'm
not sure how he found out about it. A photo of the rear end made it out,
not sure who took the photo. So how did this Tucker come out of hiding?
Very interesting story. Now you know the Tucker has been sitting for 40
years and people tried to see it, but the owner would chase them away. The
whole family was sworn to secrecy. No one was allowed to talk about it.
Brian Pain grew up in Auburn, Washington. When he was a kid he saw it. But
again, the owner chased him away. His sister was and still is friends with
the owner's daughter. The owner died 2 years ago. Brian made contact with
the family. Brian and his friend Gary Savage came out from Colorado and put
together the sale of the Tucker. I have to tell you they did a great job
for the family and new owner. The new owner wanted the bumpers installed. I
think every part was found except the left front turn signal. How did I get
involved? The owners accountant wanted an appraisal. Brian and Gary called
me to do the appraisal. They prepared the car for shipment. Now this was a
family affair, 4 generations were on hand to see the Tucker rolled out.
Charlie, the owner of Classic Car Courier, came with his roll back to pick
up the Tucker. He took it for shipping to the east coast and the new
owner. It will be neat to see it when it's finished. This is one of the
fun parts of being in classic cars. Jeri Drager, Drager's International

Chevy and Pontiac graveyard. Melbourne,Australia.
So many of these graveyards exist all over the world. This one from right
here in Melbourne,Australia. Where in Melbourne this place is i don't know.
These are all original rhd's too.All Aussie assembled and sold new here.
There should be a law against this. These old analogue pics were given to
my brother about 10 years ago now by an old workmate of his. The pics were
already quite old back then,so much so that the guy couldn't remember where
this place was. These pics are definately from the 80s and there is a red
kodak stamp on the back of each photo with 'dec 85' next to it. I'm
convinced that's the date they were developed.

Packing a stout, small block V8 in a clean, road ready restoration, this
fully sorted weekend warrior draws big crowds and big compliments wherever
it goes. And if you're one of the many enthusiasts looking for a fun
classic that's both unique and cool, it's your ticket to car guy nirvana!
In typical 60s Detroit fashion Ford's first generation Falcon, adorned with
curved surfaces and creases that stretch from stem to stern, is incredibly
hard to make straight once it's been overhauled or reworked. Fortunately,
the metal on this compact coupe has been subjected to a professional
restoration that involved good panel alignment and an astute attention to
Hoist this Futura's bright red hood and you'll find a beefy Ford V8 that's
been fully rebuilt and dressed to impress. When the car officially
transformed into the old school hot rod you see today, every one of its
details was upgraded in the name of both performance and aesthetics. And
presently, the smooth mill looks great displaying a thick coat of Jet Black
paint inside a nice layer of chrome and traditional, Satin Black fenders.
The engine gets its air and fuel from an Edelbrock Performer intake which
props a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and chrome, open element cleaner beneath
a snazzy Ford wing nut. Fire is provided by a Mallory Unilite distributor,
which sends spark across stamped and chromed valve covers via fresh Radio
Resistance wires. And spent gases are handled by a slick pair of coated
Doug's headers, which connect to either manually operated cut-outs or
coated, true-dual pipes.
Motivation is provided by a reliable 4-speed transmission, which spins a
traditional 9-inch rear end. Braking is provided by a combination of manual
front discs and familiar rear drums, which do an excellent job facilitating
drama-free stops. There's a fully rebuilt suspension, which is currently
fitted with fresh KYB Gas-a-Just shocks. And traction is maximized by a
fresh set of American Racing Torq Thrust Ds, which ride on 205/70R14
Firestone FT70 radials.
This cool Ford's correct and tasteful interior is a classy reminder of the
days when style and appeal were the central focus of automotive design. At
the front of the car, a fully restored dash hangs pristine stainless trim
between a vintage Sprint tachometer, a direct-fit cassette deck and modern,
chrome-trimmed auxiliary gauges. In front of that dash, completely rebuilt
and recovered seats provide the perfect spot for Main Street cruise nights.
Below those seats, fade-free carpet centers a familiar Hurst shifter
between a classy console, clean Ford sills and color-keyed floor mats. And
in front of the driver, an impressive Ford steering wheel spins a burled
wood rim around bright chrome spokes.
Solid, early 60s metal doesn't come along too often, and given the
attention this Ford draws in our showroom, it probably won't last long!

If you're looking for a fun classic that is as unique as it is cool, this
impressive '65 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting for!
When this striking Futura rolled into our showroom, one thing was
immediately apparent. The quality of its restoration is top notch in every
way; and whoever spent the time hammering its solid body back into shape
has either spent most of their adult life in a body shop or restored more
than their fair share of second generation Falcons. From the top of its
smooth roof to the bottom of its cool Turquoise body, this car is much
straighter than when it rolled out of Ford's Lorain, Ohio manufacturing
facility and features a great looking coat of urethane paint which displays
virtually no flaws.
The car's reliable but basic 6-cylinder engine was swapped for a larger 351
Cleveland four valve V8 that looks great covered in a thick coat of
traditional Ford Blue paint. And its clean engine bay was fitted with an
assortment of dress up pieces, which range from gray hood hardware to
polished stainless fuel lines, and then refinished in the same slick
Turquoise urethane as its glossy exterior panels. The 351 gets its air and
fuel from an Offenhauser aluminum intake which props a Holley 4-barrel
carburetor below a chrome topped, satin black dual snorkel air cleaner.
Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor that sends spark
through eight Autolite Pro Fit premium plug wires which snake around finned
aluminum Ford Racing valve covers. And cooling is provided by a Northern
aluminum radiator which is complete with both a polished cap and a polished
Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission
and a traditional Ford nine inch rear end. Steering is provided by a
traditional manual rack which gives the car a unique, vintage feel. And
braking is provided by a combination of manual front discs and manual rear
drums which do an excellent job of providing fade free, drama free stops.
Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a nice set of Halibrand
15 inch Five Spoke wheels which ride on 195/65 Hankook radials up front,
and 215/70 Cordovan Centron radials out back. And overall, the bottom of
this Falcon presents very well with solid floors that display no signs of
rust, a straight frame that shows no indication of damage, and a slew of
road ready parts that all function just as they should.
This cool Falcon's tasteful and comfortable two-tone blue interior is a
classy reminder of the days when style and appeal were the central focus of
automotive design. At the front of the car, rebuilt factory gauges ride
inside a fully restored dash which hangs pristine stainless trim above a
set of modern, chrome trimmed auxiliary gauges and a chrome shifter that's
complete with an awesome piston shift knob. At the sides of the car, great
looking two-tone door panels wrap like-new vinyl around restored, stainless
trimmed armrests, fresh chrome handles for the doors and windows and
correct chrome emblems. And in the middle of the car, completely rebuilt
and recovered two-tone blue bench seats provide the perfect spot for main
street cruise nights. In front of those seats, a correctly restored
steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a chrome turn signal stalk
and a large, column mounted Sunpro tachometer. Below the seats, excellent
looking dark blue carpet rides under color-matched floor mats. And above
the seats a like-new tan headliner leads the eye from chrome A-pillar
covers and a flame embossed rearview mirror to a straight and fade-free
package tray which hangs two speakers over a fully restored trunk.
Solid, well-done early 60s metal like this doesn't come along too often,
and given the attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long
either! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more

1965 Ford Fairlane 500 Ranchwagon
This is a pretty unusual car! It would be called a mid-sized vehicle at
the time..and it appears to have the passenger capacity and room in back
that would befit a stationwagon of its day. Sporty and practical!
