1961 Ford Falcon

This is a sharp 61 Falcon which was completely taken down to bare metal and totally repainted inside and out approximately 2 years ago. All rusted out areas were cut out and new metal welded in with only minimal filler used over the repaired areas. Daily driver quality but nice enough to take to small local car shows if you wish. 200 inline 6 cylinder runs and drives excellent. The motor is from a 65 mustang that had low mileage on it when the owner converted to a V-8. 2 speed automatic transmission shifts perfectly and kickdown linkage works good also. I've put less than 500 miles on the car since restoration. The car is about 90% restored. The only things left to restore or update would be the suspension, alignment, emergency brake, dash gauges and knobs, and to repair/re-install the heater. Manual steering and drum brakes. All of the lights, turn signals, brake lights are in working order. The under body and frame are in good shape, everything has been either painted black and/or undercoated. The automatic return for the turn signal lever isn't working. Engine runs strong and does not smoke or leak oil. The car has many newer parts, see list below.

This is a very sharp car, I get compliments on it every time I get it out for a drive.
I have a low reserve on the car compared to what all I have in it but I need a truck more than a classic car.
