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..

1963 Ford Falcon Sprint V8 Convertible
Before there was a Mustang,
if you wanted a sporty small car there was a great choice in the Falcon
Sprint. With Fords legendary 260 V8 and later the 289 available in either a
Coupe or a Convertible. There were the usual option choices and it shows
you how people though of this car by the number of 4 speed cars sold. In
case you do not know the 64 Mustangs underpinnings came from the
134213 / 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon Futura Sprint

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!
