1965 Ford Falcon Sedan Delivery Wagon
If you are a fan of rare Ford classic cars, then you will certainly want to take a very close look at this awesome machine! 'Red Hills Rods & Classics' is proud to offer you this extremely rare & absolutely beautiful 1965 Ford Falcon Sedan Delivery Wagon. Only (761) Delivery Wagons were produced in 1965, (620) Model 78B 2-Door Deluxe Deliveries, and just (141) Model 78A 2-Door Standard Deliveries, which is what this car is. 1965 was also the last year the Sedan Delivery was built. Rare? I would certainly say so! This is a seriously cool Wagon folks! Owned & restored by Gil Rojas, a lifelong hot rod, classic car & high-performance car enthusiast, this amazing wagon is certainly one-of-a-kind. Gil purchased the wagon in 1998 from his friend Ed Houtz, another lifelong classic car guy, who originally found the car at the Long Beach swap meet. Gil knew just how rare his new wagon was, so he set out to create a Sedan Delivery Wagon that would blow everyone's mind. The final result is a FOMOCO wagon that is sure to put a huge smile on anyone's face. The original sheet metal is laser straight all of the way around the car, w/ countless man-hours spent making sure that the body panels lined up nicely are that the gaps were precise as possible. The Porsche Red paint that was chosen is simply beautiful, polished to a brilliant shine, and highlighted by narrow light blue pinstripes, which looks outstanding. All of the chrome & stainless trim is in show quality condition throughout. She's got the perfect stance and sits on polished 17" American Racing Torq-Thrust II wheels wrapped w/ low-profile radial tires (235/45/R17 on the rear & 215/40/R17 up front). Underneath, Gil installed Mustang II front suspension w/ power rack & pinion steering, 6-way adjustable coil-over shocks & springs, and 11" power assisted front brakes, which make this Sedan Delivery Wagon drive like a dream. The entire undercarriage is very nicely detailed from front to back. Open the driver's door and you will find an artfully crafted light grey/dark grey interior done by Superior Auto Interiors in Lancaster, CA. Features include: Chrysler bucket-seats, Haneline engine turned dash insert w/ a full set of custom white-faced gauges, Flaming River adjustable tilt steering column, custom wrapped LaCarrera steering wheel, billet control knobs, and dark grey carpeting from front to back. The interior is elegant, simple & highly functional in every way. Pop open the hood and you will find a powerful 5.0L 302ci GT-40 V8 crate motor from Ford Performance w/ Electronic Fuel Injection. These 5.0L/302 GT-40 crate motors include assembled aluminum GT-40 cylinder heads and produce approximately 340 HP. They are excellent motors and extremely reliable. Other features include: chrome Ford Racing valve covers, custom chrome 5.0 COBRA air intake assembly, complete billet serpentine system, custom-built headers, chrome alternator, heavy-duty aluminum radiator, billet overflow tank, flexible chrome radiator hose, and on & on! The chrome AC compressor was installed for future plans of adding air conditioning but was never completed. It is ready to add plumbing if the new owner decides that they want air conditioning. The 5.0 engine is linked to a Mustang AOD (Automatic Overdrive) transmission which feeds power to a Currie 8" posi rear-end w/ 3.55 gear ratio. She fires up instantly, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she drives & performs beautifully in every way.
