Just picked it up last week. Its a 62, Ming Green, with Turqouise and Gray interior. Runs pretty well, but the previous owner frankensteined windshield wiper fluid nozzels and aftermarket radio wiring into it that I will have to fix. My ultimate goal is a 302, C4 swap into it. I got a 302 long block from a buddy for free that his dad got in the late 70s for working on a car. Its a 68 Mexican block that just been sitting, since then. The c4 was free as well with the car, along with trans and engine mounts for the C4 and 302. I will be fixing the interior before anything else, while i build up the 302 and c4. 55 years has been hard on the cloth inserts of the bench seats.

Always been a ford guy. My buddy had a 63 1/2 sprint a few years ago he never finished before selling, I really wanted to see it done. When this car came up for sale I was able to trade, and possibly lose some money on the deal,my 2002 steeda factory race car, that was not running but 95% complete and had been sitting in my garage untouched for 3 years. I wanted something I could drive on the road legally and put some time in with my kids outside of a drag strip. The round body falcons have always been cool to me, so I couldn't pass this one up.

You have a beautiful car. Have fun with your new obsession.

I like how the ash tray for the back seat passengers is built into the front seat back rest.
