1963 Ford Falcon

1963 falcon i beleive its a 289 small cam. headers nice intake and carb sounds strong not to radical motor is very good nice flow master exhaust looks fairly new. Transmission is a fmx recently rebuilt passing gear is not hooked up but it shifts fine, 55 rear end . The brakes have had some updating recently 4 wheel manual drums pulls slightly to the right after is sits for several days gets better with daily use. the front suspension is tight dosen't have any play but it dosen't drive good it road walks some steering box has some play I had the front end aligned and the shop said it drives bad because the steering box needs to be replaced but I really am not sure what the problem is. The body is pretty straight there is minor rust bubbles in both quarters on the very bottom lip where it rolls under and a few bubbles in front of the left tire the car does not need quarters! these are very minor bubbles and the car was last painted in 1992 so there are no hidden issues. The paint has a nice shine the worst flaws are a few scratches on the right quarter and a crack in the hood where i has a dent the size of a quarter fixed when the car was painted 20 years ago.Floor pans are great no rust at all the drive shaft tunnel is a little hacked up from the 4 spd but not too bad .The interior is still very nice considering its age there is minor fading which is pretty much just like it was in 1996 no rips or tears .The passenger front window is cracked and will need to be replaced.The car has been sitting for 2 years we got it limbered up but it will need some tinkering to be a daily driver motor trans and brakes are good the fan hits the shroud if you get on it very hard. Now for a little history on the falcon This car was restored by Homer Greenley in the early 80's he was in the upholstery business thus the disco interior. At the time it had a healthy 289 4 spd traction bars and ansen sprint wheels at that time it went a complete restoration fresh black laquer paint this car was probably one of the first cars in the falcon club of america which was founded here in Arkansas in 1979 I have talked to Mr Roy (founder of the club ) and he remembers homer and this falcon very well. I first saw the car when i was 15 and loved it my first car which i had at the time was a 1960 ranchero . On my 21st birthday I had a chance to buy my dream ca, the owner had retired and was no longer driving the=falcon the paint was showing its age but otherwise it was still a nice car. I had it painted in 1992 took it to local car shows and eventually swapped the 4spd for the fmx thats in it now. I sold the car in 1996 and never saw it again until two years ago when it turned up 3 hrs from me on craigslist .Amazingly the car is pretty much just as left it other than a little age and I am pretty sure the engine has been rebuilt or replaced I bought the falcon back and never really did anything with it the trans was weak and it basically set up neglected until a month ago . I bought a fully restored resto mod 63 and althought it hurts i cant keep them both please call me if you have any questions 870-692-0249
