    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!

    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.

    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.

Nice job on yours! Jim

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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!
