Classic Car Overview

For consignment, a result of much market research that aimed at women, a second car for families, and a smaller car that was less cumbersome and expensive. We give you the 4th and last year of the first generation of the Ford Falcon. And talking about an eye-catching redux, the consignor states that it was performed in 2016. Much of the build has been documented and recorded for posterity in the form of pictures and receipts. Exterior In typical 60s Detroit fashion, Fords first-generation Falcon, adorned with curved surfaces and creases that stretch from stem to stern, is incredibly hard to make straight once its been overhauled or reworked. Fortunately, the metal on this compact coupe has been benefited by meticulous maintenance and usage over the years, so good panel alignment and an astute attention to detail remains. The cars classic flanks are very straight, prior to the red respray being laid on its solid and sculpted body. A few bubbles and touch ups are noted in the lower body panels, but you have to be down on your hands and knees to notice them. That bodys gaps are very good, featuring doors that operate with precision and vertical components that are centered in their respective openings. And overall, this pint-size cruiser carries every indication that its high quality original condition turned into a well-kept effort to create a timeless compact car which looks good on the road and great in the parking lot! For the corners lets throw in some snappy 14-inch Weld Rodlite wheels to go with the mirror like chrome bumpers, beautiful stainless grille, chrome front window surround and Thunderbird-esque chrome trimmed hood scoop, all on the near perfect red field. Interior This cool Fords 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, an original dash with a pristine stainless instrument cluster, all within the dual elongated eyebrow design stretching across the front and bathed in a tasteful body matching red color as well as making ample use of chrome surrounds, ivory bakelite knobs, and horizontal trim pieces. In front of that dash is a pristine fully restored low back wide split bench seat. This is in black vinyl and has tuck and roll inserts with smooth stitched black bolsters. Some white piping adds to the allure, as does the Grant rally style steering wheel and Sun tachometer on the column. Below those seats, fade-free carpet in black and looking like new covers the floors. At the edges of that carpet, great looking door panels wrap like-new smooth black vinyl and mix it with red painted metal upper sills. In the center over the black vinyl, is some of that jet age styling in polished and ribbed aluminum looking a lot like Chuck Yeagers ride when he broke the sound barrier. This wonderful shiny trim wraps entirely around the interior panels and is just beautifully done. Above those panels, a like-new headliner hangs with some wrinkling above all this wonderful color and design. All very nicely done and a standing ovation for this early 60s interior. Drivetrain With a car of this restoration caliber, one would almost expect something special to be under the hood, and opening it your wandering eyes will just say WHAAAAAAAT? Yes, there it is in the flesh, or should I say cast and machined metal, a chrome air cleaner topped 289ci power plant with an aluminum Edelbrock intake. Topping the intake is a Holley 4-barrel carburetor. On either side, covering those heads are polished Ford Racing valve coverings. On the back is a Toploader 4-speed manual, and way back a Ford 9-inch pumpkin turns the tires. All beautifully put together and I cannot wait to drive it. Undercarriage Underneath we note as expected, an undercoated and repainted undercarriage. Solid as a rock with headers and Turbo muffler dual exhaust. Simple is the word of the day, with a single shock absorber per side dampening the road blows for the leaf spring suspension on back and independent coil springs are for the front. Drum brakes are all around, and all like new. Drive-Ability Every now and again we get an unexpected surprise and this car provided it. After a quick turn of the ignition and initial fire up, it was off to the test track where this car had surprising acceleration, smooth cruising, and great handling. This car is full of pleasant surprises, and I was duly impressed. Interior is near perfect with all working controls. A great ride, and surprisingly powerful. I checked under the hood to see if it was actually a V8 under there, and there was! A nearly concours, (although modified), example with a fire engine red color, and it mates with the original interior wonderfully. A simple yet beautifully designed compact with performance that is super impressive, as is the case with this entire automobile. Awesome nut and bolt restoration, this Falcon swoops into our Hallowed Halls and has nested into the North wing. Definitely worth a gander. 3T01U133337 3-1963 T-Metuchen, NJ Assy Plant 01-Falcon 2 Door Sedan U-170ci I6 133337-Sequential Unit Number WARRANTY TAG BODY 62A-Falcon 2 Door Sedan COLOR I-Champagne TRIM 181-Gold Vinyl DATE 17M-December 17th Build DSO 23-Philadelphia AXLE 3-3.20 TRANS 1-3 Speed Manual
