  • Do you really NEED a Falcon Sedan Delivery?!?

    YES! YES I DO!

    I'm filled with both excitement and shame.

    My answer is still YES!!!

    I have a ton of parts to sort and evaluate, this will be basically on hold until the C10 is at least operational.

    I've wanted one for a long time, the few I've seen for sale have been a steaming pile or out of my range.
    I paid too much here, but it came with a LOT of parts.
    302 crate engine, rebuilt AOD trans, Mosier 8.8 narrowed rear end, painless harness, fitech efi, vintage air + serpentine system, mustansg 2 front with qa1 shocks
    rechromed bumpers, new glass, custom wheels/tires, Dakota digital gage setup.......

    I do think it was a high level sin to travel to Kannapolis NC and buy a FFFF, a FFFF. A FOMOCO product

    That looks like a HUGE score to me! Assuming the shell is in as good a condition as the pile of parts they had planned to put in it - it should be an excellent ride. But I might be biased as I am a Ford guy.

        Thanks!
        He collected parts for 12 years. His friend was doing the metal work and became unable to finish and it.
        He "couldn't find" anyone else to finish it, so it just sat. The metalwork is NOT finished as advertised, but it's a good start. The car is SOLID.

            This car has been in N.C. since at least the 80's. The guy owned it in high, sold it. He tracked it down and bought it back around 2010 ish and started spending money.

                Thanks Russell

                The engine is not what I'd consider to be boost ready. It's a 300hp 302 from ATK. I think the car deserves better.
                This particular engine (and possibly the AOD) will probably go into my "shop truck" 4 door 68 Falcon wagon....Time will tell

                  That's just an excellent find! But if you were in Kannapolis why didn't you stop by and visit? (The answer is that we're 2 hours away and probably not in the right direction but I would have enjoyed meeting you in person.)

                    I looked up Wilimington before I left. I had the same thought. I had 9 hours on the road in a strange truck pulling a trailer.. that was going to add another 4.
                    Maybe next time Dan, if you get to VA let me know!

                      Great starting point. You didn't mention year, but I'm guessing 1963-65.

                        YESSIR it's a 1964.
                        It's been media blasted inside and out- top and bottom. In epoxy primer with ZERO body filler to this point.
                        Still needs a bit of grind/weld action, but SOLID

                          Russell and I are hoping to meet Peewee at VIR this Spring so it could happen. Always great to meet BSers!

                              Russell's stock bottom end 5.0 is taking it quite eagerly!
