1,500 is a sweet deal! Get it!
It's a drinking rig, cooler built-in for those backroad cruises
Reminds me of a true story, with a twist.
I lived in my hometown Estevan Sask in the late 70's. There was a local group that went to Boise Idaho to pick up a dog. Plane crashed and searches proved futile. Spring was on he way and the searches were called off. Everyone took the people for dead. There was young lady on the plane that survived, and I went to school with her (she was one grade below me, I graduated in 78, she was 79). She and her brother-in-law survived and ended up walking out, saving themselves.
So a book was written about their ordeal. The girls brother-in-law was Brent Dyer who's very wealthy family owned the Ford dealership. In the book,
it describes Brent's wild life as a teenager. Story goes he had a '64 Mustang with the pedal operated windshield squirter converted to shoot booze
into the car. He could fill shot glasses from the drivers seat.
Well in actuality, the car was not a Mustang but a 64 Falcon Futura. The writer changed this detail I believe because Mustangs were better known than the Falcon.
Anyway... I eventually owned that very Ford Falcon. Yes I owned a Ford, but it was really cool!
I can feel your pain with this vehicle. However, I grew up so dirt poor that the only car model I had growing up was a Marlin. I must have painted that thing 50 times so that I could pretend that I had different cars. Thus it will always hold a soft place in my heart.
Not really on the road but i figure it could use a mention. This is sitting at the local stealership, probly because our 4wd jamboree show is coming up soon.
I'm in love!!!
Looks like an old oilfield pickup!
Holy crap! A 58-61 with a 2cyl engine!
a whole 25 horseypower. The most out of all the 2 cyls. though.
Only 177k made in that model too lol
I dunno...sure looks like a lot of work.
It's got all manner of cool shit that I assume comes with though.
Looks like most of it's there to me?
Somebody call him up and go get it...about a mile from my house.
It looks pretty straight and solid overall. I'm thinking that one has torsion bar front suspension?
Front was torsion bar and spring on those, guessing since no V under the bowtie emblem that it is a stovebolt, column shift would make it a 'glide right? I've heard that if you don't like the dual snorkel look hood, a '62 hood bolts right on with no mods.
Parts for any suspension items are almost impossible to find. Brake shoes are yes, seal kits yes, but springs and adjusters, no.
You have to swap in 14 bolt FF backing plates and hubs to the HO52 or 72 axle. Then you can have more modern brakes and parts.
