    Here's mine. It's a 1961 Falcon Fordor Deluxe and in the "Wrecks to Riches" saga, this is step 1.
    I bought it about a year ago from a guy in Wichita, KS. A club member had died and the other members were handling the disposal of his cars & parts.

    It has very little rust and will become my "Weekend Driver". I'm going a little slow, these days. Who knew that at 68 years old, getting down on the floor and back up would become so difficult. (Just glad to be vertical, most days.)

    That's a shame as it looks like a 62 Falcon two-door wagon.

    A good condition '60-'63 2dr wagon or sedan delivery with an automatic are tied for #1 on my realistic want list. It would be one of very few cars I'd abandon my T project and my Cougar for.

    My uncle had a red '60 2dr wagon when I was in jr high. I tried to buy it from him when he retired it, but he said it was no longer structurally sound.

    Not mine, but enjoyed seeing this 65 (?) Delivery around Portland years ago.
    Borrowed from the long roof thread, now in the UK.
    Quite a rare car.

    I have owned my 1960 wagon exactly one year and have since added four lug Truespokes, new front and rear bumpers, many NOS trim pieces and an Australian visor. Here are some before and after pictures.

    Hello all,
    New to this forum and pretty sure it's too late to even post here, but it is worth a shot. I have recently developed a soft spot for these old ford falcon wagons after completing a mustang restoration. Looking into picking up a project car (63 or 64). I have a 289 w/C4 tranny sitting in the garage, this should fit right in I'm assuming with 1963 being the first year of the V8 option, right?

    If you are aware of any for sale please email me at (george.amartinez3@gmail.com)

    If it's an original V-8 car, it should be easy. If you're converting a six-cylinder car, you should do some reinforcing to the chassis and upgrade the suspension.

    Can't believe I've been a member here all of these years, and just now ran across this thread, lol.

    I've got a '62 Falcon 2-door wagon rat rod (the "Ratwagon") that me and my eldest son built several years ago; I'll dig out some photos of it later tonight or tomorrow and post them up here for you fellas.

  20. Neat trick with the valve covers. I was thinking how'd they get that tuned port on that Ford. Then I looked closer.
