Lets, start out with where the Falcon is on the numbers game:According to HAGERTY insurance, the 1967 Ford Falcon Sport Coupe with a 289 and bucket seats(a rare option) would bring 18,000,to 21,000 in Number 2 condition..I, will say my car is a high 2.
A, 2 car, should be able out of the box, to win awards in local shows, magazine potential, show little wear, paint in excellent to very good condition.
From the start the car was that way..I’m, just the 3nd owner of the car, the 2nd owner only had it 3 weeks ,and had a very expensive SONNY LEONARD pro mod engine show up ,and needed the money to pay for it.
The car was shipped cross country in a covered trailer…the paint was out of this world, the full original interior was just unreal…chrome etc..I bought the car sight unseen…but had hundreds of pictures sent to me for inspection. I bought it based on his wife’s statement…the original owner told them, “DONT GET OUR BABY WET” we never got it wet when we owned it.
I, screwed up and got caught in a rain storm…the wipers failed…I,never fixed them as a reason not to get it wet either.
There is now major mods to the car from front to back…the 289 radiator, is still there ,but with the support of a water pump from AUSTRAILA..it is able to super cool this car sitting in front of a PAXTON SUPERCHARGED, DSS RACING 410 CI.SBF…Pushing near 500 RWHP…467 LBS of torque at 5800 RPMS (ALL MONEY CLAIMS SUPPORTED BY RECIEPTS) 12, 846.00 it was a turn key carb engine ,which I later bought the supercharger,got COMP CAMS ..to custom grind a blower cam. New Hooker headers ,a 1000.00 spent on a AEROMOTIVE FUEL system …pump, filter, regulator. from the Hookers back…are 40 MUFFLERS to chrome tips.
Oh yeah….1200.00 in a front end rebuild….WILWOOD BRAKES..
The car has been 100 percent rewired by a real pro…a RON FRANCIS wire harness,was installed.
A .NEW TCI ‘STREET FIGHTER C6,and convertor went in with the new engine.
GOD. I must be forgetting something…just over 78, 000 original miles…at leas 35 show awards ranging from BEST FALCON BEST FORD BEST MUSCLE CAR….RUNNER UP IN CLASS ..in the PORTLAND ROADSTER SHOW..2006 ISSUE OF LEGENDARY FORD MAGAZINE…cover and feature story.
Last, this year 10,000 dollars in parts and labor to install a complete ART MORRISON 4 LINK- COIL OVER SHOCK STRANGE ENG.FORD 9 INCH WITH 35 SPLINE AXLES ,WILWORD REAR BRAKES.
It will kill me to sell it…but a serious health issue has mandated it.
