Ford's Falcon was designed to be humble, economical daily transportation that would quietly go to the store and bring home the groceries. This Falcon takes all those original intentions and throw them in the trash bin. The original cast iron inline six was snatched from the engine bay and in it's place went a fully built and race prepared 347 cubic inch stroked small block Ford V-8. No Chevy power here, this is as Henry Ford would have intended! This professionally built engine is tuned to a reliable, streetable 510 horsepower, and features a balanced and blueprinted Eagle rotating assembly, 10.5 to 1 compression ratio, custom grind camshaft by Comp Cams, custom machined and ported aluminum cylinder heads, MSD distributor, and a gigantic tunnel ram intake topped with dual 600cfm Holley carburetors. This monster motor is bolted to a heavy duty Tremec T-5 manual transmission with Hurst shifter and hands off all that tire shredding torque to a Ford 9" locker rear axle with a 4.11 gear to get this lightweight brute out of the hole hard and fast. Power is nothing without control, and to that end this Falcon received a Speedway straight axle front end, a Crites rear spring relocation kit to fit the massive rear 295/50 rear tires, custom ladder bars, and subframe connectors. The ride height was set up for that classic "Gasser" look, and helps to put weight over the rear axle when you launch it. Lest you think this is just an engine swap and suspension redo on a worn out Falcon, think again! This body shell was taken down to the bare metal and any cancer was removed and replaced with new clean metal. This solid shell was then sprayed "Viper" red and polished to a mile deep shine. The front and rear windshields were replaced with new glass, the factory bumpers re-chromed, and all stainless trim polished to a shine. Completing the period correct look are yellow tow tabs under the front bumper, red tinted quarter windows with period racing decals, and classic E/T Gasser skinny front wheels. The interior is just as timeline correct as the exterior. No modern updates here, just how it would have been circa 1963. Vinyl covered bucket seats, painted metal dash, deluxe interior trim, gorgeous polished stainless, factory gauges, and even the original AM radio in the dash. Not that you would possibly ever want to choose a radio over the exhilarating sound of pure American horsepower escaping through the exhaust pipes. The period AutoMeter tachometer mounted to the steering column, under dash triple gauge cluster, three point roll bar and five point racing harness let you know that this is definitely NOT your grandmother's Falcon. As race car as this muscle machine is, it has never been tracked, it is a show piece that serves to teleport show goers back to a different time period where you could drive your car to the track, race competitively, and drive it home again after. Or maybe cruise the Ave and wage stoplight wars with other hot rods for bragging rights at the Hamburger stand. While it's appearance says hardcore track car, it is actually docile enough to drive around town, starts easily, and rides comfortably. It is a joy to drive and turns heads everywhere you go. Be prepared to make friends at every fuel stop in this beauty, as it draws people like moths to a flame. This is a multi-purpose fun and exciting automobile and needs nothing besides a new garage to call home! Contact Brian at352-307-1968 and take this amazing piece of Americana home with you today!
