1961 Falcon , 144 cu. in. automatic , all original with 22K miles from Georgia.
Here's our 1960 comet, my son and I just got from Ca. No rust thru's. No engine or trans. Planning on 302,C4 Plus 5 lug conversion
My old xm (1964) falcon wagon, sold it cause i had another project on the go and it needed a bit of bodywork on the dogleg and it was beyond my skills to do myself! I have regretted it every day since! Bout to pick up another one the same in the next week!
Nice birds keep em coming...
I sold this one a few months back. It was as ugly as sin but a fun little car.
could have made a 100% improvement just by removing those headlight blemishers.
I would love this for a daily driver.
The headlight things were all ready on there when I got it, I just never got around to taking them off before I sold it. I lowered it, fixed the brakes, and then just enjoyed it for a bit.
I have a 1962 2 dr that I finished two years ago. No pics on line because I don't know how to enter the picture into the computer. Anyway, 200 with cam, headers, 4 speed, Flowmaster, rare Ming Green 62 Ford color. Sec/treas of Space City Chapter, Falcon Club here in Housto. My second car was 60 2 dr. Third, 63 Sprint. Nice job on yours! Jim
Here's my bird.
It's like staring God in the eye! No words to describe how rad this car is!
Danny.. Is that a custome Christmas tree?? I didn't think that was part of the restoration plan!!
BTW--I got the picture in my email last week..
Merry Christmas to you and the family!!!
here is a pic of my 63 wagon a few years ago with a bunch of s&*t in the back and two inch blocks. was funny cause when i would hit bumps the driveshaft would just bairly hit the tunnel. now she has the blocks out and i am gonna raise the tunnel so i can set her back down. oh yea this is a bump for one of the coolest threads on here.
from the same show. my wagon in front, mel's sedan, then my friend ted's 62 wagon
Not a Falcon and not so much done right, but it's close and I think it's got a good look to it.
Hey, all. Here is my '63 Hartop. A work in progress but she's a fun little car that gets lots of attention. Please disregard the misaligned panels I was in a hurry to get panels back on her and take a couple pics. What do ya think?
O.K couldnt help myself, love this thread only just found it...
had to attach pic's of my wagon, cant take to much credit as most of the work was done by my brother inlaw. Built for cuzing, with lumpy 302 windsor installed C4 auto.....just need to sought out height????maybe drop it nice and low throw some spats on....as per others i have seen on thread
i always thought the Oz wagons looked a little better than ours... lop off a few inches and it does wonders! too bad FordAustralia didn't give you more two-door cars early on.... that's a nice wagon you have; don't be too quick in making drastic changes...
here is mine guys from Australia my 1964 falcon xm sedan cheers jimmy www.oldskoolfalcon.com
Is this your website??? you have some cool gear on there
Here's my 67 Futura... just rebuilt the front end and added a nice set of lowering springs. No more nose bleeds! =D
Is that the host of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives? LOL
Nice Pic !
here is my latest. Its an aussie xk ute.
I agree, but sick stance!
I disagree with mcnally, i love the stance. looks good low and not way up in the air. Keep it that way.
"sick" meant "Man, that's SICK, it looks so wicked sitting like that!"
you misunderstood it to mean "Man, that's SICK, like frenchkissing your Mom!"
This came out of a warehouse here in town when I got it. It used to have a big block shoved in the bay and I think it was raced quite a bit in the 70's. Now its got a pretty ill tempered, ie: pissed off, ie: built 302 and a T-10 four speed (it was an original four speed car). Its got a nice Currie/posi under it. I've got a couple of changes in store for it like a stock bench instead of the Recarro sp? copies etc.
Always had a soft spot for the Falcons, this is the second one of these I have owned. Really a fun parts chaser!
This thing is awesome. I would drive this everyday.
