I see a lot of street freaks, not gas class race cars.
^^^^^^^^^ Who cares^^^^^^^^^^^ I gave you 2 likes, one for the Ford's, one for the lady in the Sarong! And I'm not even a Ford freak...............
Cool pics..... But a Q? which haul the mail, an which are static?
The #'s really will tell the story of who's got what it takes...... Otherwise= Cqql Post!
Not sure really..... They're just some pics I found on the net for everyone here to check out....
The 60's gasser owners called. They're all laughing their asses off.
Love me some Falcons
Nose high Falcons.... They want to fly, and they should!
The one from Street Machine magazine should give a clue.
I don’t get it....nothing wrong with those cars in my eyes. How are they any different from the tri five chevy “gassers” everyone posts on here?
What Poor Boys said x 2 !!!
Falcons have been a staple of gasser's since they came out. Just because they are not tri-5 Chevys or Willys or Anglias does not mean they were not good Gassers. They were cheap to buy, light weight .
I remember a bad Gasser at Miami- Hollywood speedway in the late 60's was a 64 Falcon with a 427 FE. Ran B/Gas.
Might as well post my old Falcon that I got in a trade.
Hell I’m adding to it...I’m more of a comet guy...but wouldn’t mind a dirty bird in my garage
...it says "gasser style" cars,...so all these fit this thread, I like em all...
All of the following are from the Meltdown 2017. If you like Falcons, you better be there.
Thanks for posting those...
Love Falcons with straight axles. Had one in the early 70s with a 427 side oiler/top loader/9" and econoline. Sure didn't stop well with those drum brakes. Often wonder what happened to it. Like everything else, probably no where as cool as I remember it but that is what is neat about memories, we tend to overlook the bad stuff. At least some people do.
I am enjoying this thread. Had a 61 falcon wagon in 1969 which was my (love wagon with bead curtains) and i didn't appreciate falcons then as i do now. Had a chance to get it back a couple years later when i got a letter from a towing company in northern Ca saying they had it in storage and for me to come and get it for their fees. I declined since it would of cost more then it was worth. There i go again rambling again.......
They look good as long as they are not nosebleed high, and the tires aren't taller than the side profile of the car, if that makes sense. I think too tall rear tire makes the car look silly. Some of the later posted examples here are sweet. "disorderly conduct" and "southern comfort" have the stance just right in my eyes...
Back in the 60's we liked them high. HRP
Falcons were a staple of the strip, whatever the class. Just tread lightly if you classify 'em. Otherwise you'll sure as hell piss in somebody's Wheaties. Plus, they made for some damn wicked street brawlers too!
Like me some Falcons, more please!
Thanks again guys for the pictures and comments...
They don't..from some of them .
Modern wheels , 70's graphics, street freak look, etc. don't belong here either.
Better suited for the F/B Gasser page, where very few have a clue.
This is a 65 and earlier traditional site. Let's try to keep it that way.
Maybe I should have added "street driven" to the title.....
I like those flying birds too. Snapped a few pics at the 2017 Meltdown Drags:
Here's some original Falcon drag cars/gassers from back in the 1960's.
