I don't own it yet but I hope I can if he can get a title for it which he said he would. If I do it will go in the members rides but until then it will stay in this post.

1969 Ford Falcon originally New Lime with a 302 V8 which he said runs and a factory A/C but I didn't ask about it since he wasn't there. He told me to look anyways.


Here is a few pictures.

Ouch



There is a few holes that I noticed but I didn't look under it all the way around because there was some parts & stuff by it. 1 hole was between the seat and the door. It had rubber mat covering the whole floor.

I have a link to the other pictures I have in the first post. Let me know anything you find in the pictures?

Nice car! Be sure to get underneath and check for rust. I made the mistake of not doing a better inspection and ended up with a car that had a rusted out frame.

I hope all works out for you and that he is able to get you a clear title.

Yeah I know about the Australian Falcons which I am glad the name is still in use but I wished they would bring them back here. I try looking at 1969 Falcon's but I usually get your cars.


I got the driver side but not the passenger side. The driver side has rust holes so it might need a new floor pan and the hood has rust holes as well in the top skin & underneath so it might need a new hood but most of the car looks good.


The pics of the rust is in the link below the pictures if you want to see them. The rear bumper has rust but it looks like I can clean it off.

I checked the numbers and it's a standard 4 door sedan but it has some nice optional stuff like the A/C 302 V8 & power steering. I checked a site that is a Falcon registry and the Standard Sedans there only have the 6's. The taillights have little cracks from old age but completely intact.

I saw a few have A/C but most I seen don't.

Also even though the front seats cover is bad but the foam cushion is great. It needs a new headliner.


I hope he gets back to me when he gets the title.

Thanks. I am going to call again later to tell him I'm still interested in it and ask him to call back when he gets the title so we can figure out when to get it done.

I also would have to rent a car hauler from U-Haul or whatever since I don't have my own. Makes me wished I knew people close by me in Polk County FL that could help with that.

Next to the brake release there is something with a cable that I don't know what it is. It's missing a big black knob?

The 3rd that goes up & down is for the vent because it's also under the vents on the other side of the dash. The one between the brake release and the vent one I just don't get.


I don't think its for the hood because the hood opens from the front without any help from the inside like most of the cars & trucks I know of unless it's broken somewhere.

It actually doesn't look that rusty under neath, just the few spots you mentioned liked the floor and the hood. Looks like a great project, and I hope you are able to get the title for it!

Here is a pic of one from Flickr. See the black knob next to the chrome brake release is what I am trying to figure out and I tried all over the internet finding out what it is but nothing and not even a drawing. I checked hood release but it looks like it only unlatches from the front with no inside pull like on modern cars.

Matt It really looks more like an Aussie XR/XT Falcon with ZA Fairlane taillights sort of on their side

John (BigM) can probably give you some tips on getting a title for it and you may buy the car a whole lot cheaper without the title :Wayne:

Many online call it a small Fairlane for those years especially on the wagons and even many parts books are for both Fairlane & Falcon.


I try to keep looking into Falcons and I get mostly the Australian Falcons instead of the American.


Sucks no one makes floor pans for these years which I might need for at least the drivers side and it needs a new hood. If I finally get it I was going to get it as original as possible.

Here is another car in the same color this car came with called New Lime.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]



While I have been waiting I have seen a few nice cars for the same price like a nice 55 Ford for the same price. I am trying hard not to forget about the Falcon but I'm not sure when there are others out there.

Here is that 55 Ford.

Is the Torino front wheel drive ?? I thought I heard someone talking about that years ago.
Maybe the Aussie floor pans will fit and I think they reproduce them down here.
That 55 looks OK but why all the interest in Ford ??

They were all rear wheel drive. it wasn't until the 80's when Ford started doing front wheel cars with the Escorts & Tempos or whatever.


Every other make is more than I can afford and even if they what I can the engine & trans is gone or GM frames & engine's in some. I few at my price range were way to were too much even for other people to fix.

I am paying a few hundred but they are paying the rest and partly do to trying to get me away from these bikes so they are like hey let us help you Hee! Hee! .

I would love to have anything FoMoCo or Mopar. $1000 is what I can only spend or maybe $100 or $200 more.

There are 2 1955 Desoto's for sale near me for $3000 and today I saw a 62 Chrysler for $2500 but again they are more than I can afford.

That 55 ford looks nice! Are you in a rush to buy a car? I am sure you will come along something nice that fits your price. Don't feel like you have to settle on something. Go for a car that you really love. I bought my Desoto for $1200, so good deals are out there. Spring is on it's way, and people will be doing some spring cleaning. Perhaps you'll stumble on something great by then. Smile

No but I am just keeping my options open if the Falcon falls through. I love all of the cars & trucks I see.


I'm not giving up on the Falcon yet, I think it's has pretty good options on it that most of the other Standard 4 door Falcons I see don't have, plus I don't see many cars with the same original color.
