1961 Ford Falcon DeluxeThis is the GAS MONKEY Falcon. Sold on the show in 2013, seen in two episodes. Rich bought the car and was going to cut it up and make a gasser out of it but when he saw it didn't have the heart. This is what he called "the most original 1961 Falcon on the planet". Someone put blackwall radials on it and it looks like crap. I bought five correct 650-13 whitewall tires for it that will go with it.
When the car was purchased the dealer put clear plastic covers on the seats and they have never been taken off. THE SEATS HAVE NEVER BEEN SAT ON !!
Here's the deal, the car has been sitting since about 1983 judging by the newspapers in the trunk. Gas Monkey had it running and driving so it moves but the brakes don't work well. The car needs to be gone through from front to back mechanically. The engine and transmission and everything else need to be pulled and the seals replaced, brake hoses and all the other hoses need to be replaced.
The nose was repainted sometime about the time we were in Viet Nam and is okay but off by about half a shade probably due to age. (You can see it in the driver's side shot in front of the Gas Monkey sign). Other than that it is a real deal 8,249 mile time capsule that needs a good home with somebody who has the knowledge to do all the mechanical work himself so it doesn't cost a million dollars to get it back in shape.
I have the knowledge but not the time so I am putting it out here to see if anybody is interested and has the cash to buy it.
