Storage Auction Find - 1966 FORD FALCON and MORE!
By remote bid I won this unit for $800.00 containing a 1966 Ford Falcon 2
door survivor, Mazda 13B rotary engine, Garrett turbo charger, Jaguar IRS rear end, VW 091
transaxle, paintball marker plus gear, tools, headers, Klein mountain bike
and lots more. Watch as I resurrect the FORD FALCON and drive it around.
There's not much more rewarding than reviving a classic, forgotten car.
