Choptop Ford Falcon

Has anyone ever seen one? I have been thinking about doing this for over a year now. I like the falcons and i wanna kindof make a street/strip car (which falcons are great for). But i hate those high roofs.

Only reason i have not done it, is because dumping all this time and money just to chop the car plus the money id spend suping it up for high speed would not be worth it BECAUSE a falcon is not worth much at all, even a high performance drag car.

There used to be a few that ran at the drags. I don't think they looked that much better, but they usually took out as much as they could to get the air flow better. The ones I remember where usually in the gasser class. I think a 2" chop would probably make it less frumpy looking without the squashed look that they had.

I hate that high roof on those cars, its makes it look like a fmaily sedan, But i see great potential in them.

I was thinking of putting some "cool" stuff on them to make it look a little custom. Then run a chop top with pelxi all around to lighten it up

ask wakborder to do a photochop for ya.

otherwise add a big ford under the hood, preferably era correct (406 dual-quad) and give it a late 50s/early 60s drag car look. Leave the body as is.

I emailed the guy. well see what happens. Im also going to watch a chevy i saw on there as well as that shoebox. Hes getting me shipping pricing and more pics fo the falcon.
If that car didnt have so many dents it would be worth it. Im very hesitant though

Try one these 3 brokers, I would prob guess 38 to 50cents a mile

McNutt would be my 1st choice, and I would recommend contacting
brokers by phone rather than e mail, and I would call all 3 for a quote.
I would guess you can figure a price per mile to be around 37cents to
50 cents per mile from Origination Address to Destination Address .

the safest way is to give the broker a deposit 4 the transport, and then give the transporter that delivers the car the remaining amount of payment to the truck driver at delivery, then you know the transporter is paid (the deposit you give the broker is there fee 4 setting up transport) you will sign a inspection sheet on both ends (pickup and delivery). check your vehicle over GOOD B4 SIGNING AT DELIVERY, things like your under carrage, driveshaft, exhaust, roof and hood, trunk, bumpers, make sure that mileage is writen on inspection sheet at pickup b4 singing. once you sign this, it releases them from any liability or damages you might find later, don't let them hurry you on checking out you car at delivery.
