1963 Ford Falcon

You'll be hard-pressed to find a garden-variety used car, et alone a cool vintage car with bright red paint, comfortable interior, nd a peppy yet economical engine for less than the price tag on this 1962 Ford Falcon 2-door sedan. Why not commute in style instead of in some anonymous rental return?Despite its tidy dimensions, ord packs a lot of style into its popular compact model. Looking a lot like a 7/8-size Galaxie, t has a bit of Thunderbird in the front fenders, slick hood scoop, nd, f course, ord's attractive jet-inspired taillights. The bright red paint job on this one accentuates the crisp body lines with two shades of gray that look right on the vintage sheetmetal and give this affordable classic a very upscale look. The workmanship is actually quite good, hich you might not expect at this price, ut someone obviously did this one with love rather than profit as their motive. Is it perfect? Of course not. But aside from a few bumps and bruises that are merely evidence of being driven and enjoyed, t's still plenty flashy. There's also a lot of brightwork that will satisfy any fan of the era, rom the nicely detailed grille and fender ornaments to the bright chrome rear bumper and FALCON block letters on the rear panel.The interior isn't totally correct, ut it sure looks great! Those are the original seats, ow covered with handsome red fabric seat inserts that duplicate the original patterns and are a lot more comfortable than the original vinyl. Close to the same shade as the bright red bodywork, t's a combination that would look at home on an upscale European import as much as on this sturdy Ford. They also made up a set of matching door panels, nd fitted red carpets that contrast nicely with the black floor mats, o it's clear that some money has been spent here. The steering wheel is nicely finished in red as well, nd without so much as an AM radio, t has an honest 1960s look that many of us, ired of technology in our cars, ight find refreshing. And despite being a small car, his Falcon has a spacious trunk with what appears to be the original mat and a full-sized spare tire.They say that everything goes in cycles, nd despite the horsepower wars warming up in the early '60s, he Falcon instead went with style and economy instead of brute horsepower. The 170 cubic inch inline-six works well with the lightweight Falcon, nd delivers impressive fuel mileage, ven today. The engine bay is tidy, he block wears correct black engine enamel with bright red tinwork, nd all the belts and hoses are recent so it's ready to go. It exhales through a single exhaust system, s original, nd the automatic transmission delivers smooth shifts and remains unobtrusive in traffic. The undercarriage, s you can see in the photos, s clean but not detailed for show, aking this a solid, eliable car that's ready for anything. Even the tires are economical, eing modest 185/80/13 whitewall radials with factory wheelcovers.Whatever you're looking for, hether it's an affordable hobby car or just fun transportation, his Falcon delivers.
