1962 Ford Falcon Owner

Just purchased my first classic car... a 1962 ford falcon with a ford-o-matic 2-speed. It's slow but purrrty. Looking to learn and help out where I can.

Welcome to the dance.

A friend of mine just built a 62 Falcon for the kid across the alley from him.
Put a 427 in it with 6 speed transmission and 9 inch Ford rear. The out side of the car is painted a stock color and he even has the white rims on it. the ultimate sleeper.

You have yourself a great little car.

From a Ford Guy.

I drag race a 1962 Falcon. Inline 6 of 200 cid, C4 transmission, 8 inch Ford differential with 4.11 posi-trak

Fun car, not fast. Best Et is 15.17 at 88 mph
