1961 Ford Falcon 2dr Sedan
FMC has always been a fan of these little inexpensive compact cars of the past that has been kept in excellent and original condition. This is a beautifully example of one of them. A beautifully restored Ford Falcon that is absolutely amazing. Although these cars were produced in large numbers in the early 60s, they are extremely hard to find today; especially in this condition. Production numbers exceeded 150,000 in 1961. They can be seen everywhere. Today, you can go years without seeing one. When you do see one, it is usually a rusty old mess or has had an oversized 350ci Chevy stuffed into it. This car is different. It is in Impeccable original condition and looks as if it left the factory a few weeks ago.
The Falcons history began in 1960. The 61 as this is, was basically unchanged from the 1960 model. The model continued through the 60s and was highly successful. So successful that it became the starting point for the first Mustang in 1964 having used the frame of the Falcon for its basic size and wheelbase. Not a bad history for what was thought of as a throw-away car with a selling price of under $2000 in 1961.
This Falcon has been refinished in its factory color of Corinthian White. The paint looks like new. All body panels are original, straight and all rust free. This car has never seen rust anywhere. Truly amazing considering these cars were prone to rust. All Chrome is gleaming with no pitting or scratching of any kind. The same can be said for its trim pieces. They are perfect.
The interior has been restored to day one condition. Seating is like new. The dash has been refinished in its original blue. The gauges are all perfect and work properly.
The undercarriage is very clean and based on these facts, we believe that the odometer reading of just 39000 is actually. We can not say this for certain but a good look at this car will basically confirm this.
The bullet-proof 170ci 6cyl runs and drives as it should. Starting is easy and it stops as it was designed to. If your looking for an inexpensive piece of Ford history, this is it. It wont beat your Chevelle or Cuda in any races but it will get as many looks and maybe more. Wanna bet?
