As you may or may now be aware, I ran the 24-hours of LeMons in a 1963 Corvair 700 Sedan, complete with the infamous Powerglide Automatic. Well, it has come to my attention that a similar car, also built in 1963, would be the perfect car for a potential team (on the west coast) to run with. Presenting the Blue Oval answer to my car, a 1963 Ford Falcon (and in the perfect shade of rust).
This 1963 Falcon two-door sedan looks like it has been sitting for a few years. This is the last year for this particular body style (at least in North America) before the 1964 facelift. They came with either an underperforming 144 CID six, or an economical but still underperforming 170 CID six. There is no mention as to what transmission sits behind this engine, the number of miles, or pretty much anything else. According to the listing:
California car, Have title in hand
Car has sat many years.
Car is complete, no damage
MUST BE TOWED!!!!!
If you have any questions please call
One good thing is that you can dump a 260 or 289 V-8 in the engine bay, along with a 4-speed stick, and you would have a dynamite LeMons Racecar. Just leave the rust as is, and you could get away with the modifications – just bribe the judges with copious amounts of alcohol. See the listing here.
