Well I drove by this poor lil primer gray Ranchero, Hand writen sign says for sale $300.
It needs work but he said he would take $200. It drives but I will not trust it very far. My first car was a 61 2 door Falcon. I got a round pretty good even when gas went to 54 cents a gallon

This should be a "easy" V-8 and axle swap.....

The old Falcons are coming out of the woodwork. I just looked at 2 62's this week end but the wife decided on a Maverick!
Good luck with it and take lots of early pics!!

Well it made it 6 blocks to where i work the 6 cyc soulds good but the carb needs work . It pulls bad to the right so th ebearings and brakes need work the 3 on the tree only has 2 and 3 but the shift levers look bent.

Fun Fun Fun !

Maybe leave it a 6! but the floor shift is a must!
