The following will be a description of each area of the car, being as in-depth and accurate as possible.

BODY:

As you can see from the photos, this1963 Falcon Sprinthas a good foundation body that is solid and dry.It appears that the car was restored along time ago (35 years)? The underside isvery solid, with great frame rails, strong torque boxes and undercarriage.I have pictured the two small rust-thru spots - One behind the driver rear tire and the second spot is in front of the passenger rear tire. I have included the two new patch panels that are required to restore these to small rust areas. There is minor dings, scratches, paint checking, peelingand minor surface ruston the car that is illustrated in the pictures below.

INTERIOR:
  • The interior is adequate for a driver. The dash pad is in bad shape. The headliner is new and will need to be installed. The front windshield is broke - A new windshield and windshield rubber weather-striping is included with this listing. The carpet, seats and other interior trim pieces are in average driver condition
