I’ve never seen this era of Ford Falcon wagon. It’s like an alternate universe LTD and I love it. But what I really love is the fact that the builders have taken a simple, inexpensive Barra straight-six and cranked it to the moon.
The Skid Factory found a Barra for two hundred bucks. They then completely rebuilt it into the amazing mill you can see in the video above. The video walks through everything done to turn this low-buck engine into a high-horsepower machine that serves as a perfect compliment for the old Falcon wagon. Once it’s nearly all bolted together it’s also a good-looking engine. I look forward to watching this all come together and seeing how it serves the wagon once it’s in place.
And yes… I’ve already emailed Tim (Mad_Science) this video to say we need to do the same for our Lemons Ranchero. No, we don’t need 800 hp. But a bit more would be fun, no?
