This 85,000 mile Ford Falcon has tons of documentation including the original window sticker, owners card, manual and and repair receipts going back to the 1960’s. The seller purchased the car from an 80 year old man last year and though it’s not clear if he was the original owner it is believed that the car has spent its entire life in Pasedena, California. Listed on Ebay at no reserve, the Squire has plenty of early bidding with the top bid at $5,400 as of this posting.
An easy cosmetic restoration would go a long way in bringing this Falcon up to the next level. The body looks very straight and the paint is believed to be all original with some typical blistering reported. All the chrome and trim pieces are intact and might just need a good polishing. The car did suffer from sun damage as it sat in a carport for years with the drivers side exposed to the sun. You can see a huge difference between the drivers and passengers side!
A new correct seat cover and carpets were installed by the current owner and he also includes a new headliner and dash pad with the sale. The rest of the interior looks to be in pretty good shape with the exception of the cargo area that shows surface rust.
The carburetor was recently rebuilt and the car is said to run and drive well. It would be nice to dress up the engine compartment a bit- after all this is a 289 Falcon!
Being a nicely optioned black plate survivor out of Southern California there’s a lot to like about this no reserve Falcon Squire.
