Rarity

This “best selling” Mark III / Caribbean model sold some 2000 units over a 6 year period. As they were often raced, many did not survive. Aside from the mortality rate, this never completed, shell rides on rare Ballamy wheels, sports a custom Ballamy front suspension and a rare Elva IOE cylinder head. She was on the way to being a serious vintage racer. And still can be. Or should you build it for the street?

Inspection

Please come inspect this great 1959 Falcon Shells Caribbean project before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 61 year old project car. It will need periodic attention just as any classic automobile does. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car so please move on to something boring. Like a Prius.
