About

Last car I built with my Dad before he passed was a '64 Falcon, I sold the car in order to fund a business 15 years ago. I looked and looked for the car to buy it back, when I could not find it I went looking for another Falcon. Being a huge fan of the 60s bubble styling that was/is popular in Europe I decided to find a '60-'63 car. What I found was this 4 door, 6 cylinder car, standard 3 speed on the tree car.
The idea is to build a rat rod style Pro Touring car, we will see if time permits. Everything but the suspension is done.

Mods

The 6 cylinder and the standard were thrown out and replaced, the work got crazy from there.
302 roller motor ('94 Mustang)
E303 cam
Crane 1.7 roller rockers
fully ported and polished heads
Edelbrock RPM Air Gap manifold
Holley 650 vac seccondary carb
New plumbing and wiring almost throughout
MSD complete ignition
Dougs tri y headers
2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with x pipe
Thrush mufflers
AOD trans with shift kit and 2800 rpm converter
B&M shifter
custom driveshaft
9" rear with posi and 4.10 gears (still can cruise in the fwy)
Everything on this car is almost brand new built, less then 1500 miles since motor, transmission, drivetrain build and plumbing
Brand new tweed purple and black interior brand new carpet kit
New front disc brake conversion
Brand new leaf springs
New master cylinder
Weld Draglite wheels (8 months old) and new tires 235 60 15 rear and 165 80 15 fronts
Brand new, still in box 15” Torq Thrust wheels
Autometer oil temp, oil pressure, water temp and tach gauges

The body is straight and has no rust other then light surface rust for a bit of character. The glass is all good, no cracks.

Unfinished things on purpose: There is no headliner, no rear door panels, front door panels are there, good and uncut though they do show 50 years of age, the paint is all original (white) except for the hood that is cut for the velocity stack and painted black. That black paint is rough, taught my three young sons how to sand and spray bomb.
