Description for Ford Falcon 1963

Well. I think I am about ready to tap out with this van. it is just too expensive for me to keep on the road and it is a little too fragile for me. As you can see below it has had a A LOT of work done in the last 3 years to keep it running while it has been my daily driver. The main issue seems to be that parts can be hard to find. Honestly this thing is running great so it pains me to get rid of it. I just have no business in the classic car game at this point. It has good compression. brakes. transmission. starts. stops. idles. all that stuff with no problems! This is the Falcon model van with the windows all around but the rear seats have been removed. The engine was replaced with a rebuilt one but no record of odometer so I don't know how many miles are on the engine. I had the cylinder heads re-machined because unleaded gas was damaging them. so now they are good to go. All work has been done locally. and I have all the receipts for over $14K in repairs and maintenance. Other details:Rear door only locks from inside. there are some leaks around some of the doors and windows in the rain. steering wheel has a little squeak when you move it. slight pull to the right when you brake. it's been in a small accident but I had the frame pulled straight so the alignment is good. some rust and dings that you can see in the pictures. but pretty sweet for a 50-year old car. and style points out the wazoo!
