Car description

61 Falcon Wagon with the 144 straight 6 and the fordomatic 2 speed. I was told the engine has been rebuilt and it appears to be true. It runs and drives good. It has air ride in the front and can be raised and lowered from the drivers side switch. You can see the tank and compressor setup in one of the pictures. It does come with an extra pump if you were to want to switch the rear over to air ride also. It has newer interior and was repainted recently (all before I owned it). The paint and interior I would say are around a 7 out of 10. The car looks great and would make a great driver which was my plan but unfortunately I just found out I need a new roof on my house so either this or my 63 Falcon Hardtop had to go. It's a very hard choice. The car is originally from California and I bought it out of Nevada so it's rock solid. Probably one of the most solid you could ever find with as far as I can tell all original panels. So with that said it wouldn't take much to get it to a 10 out of 10. I will tell you what I know to be wrong with the car. All are pretty minor and shouldn't deter anyone from missing out on a great car. The number one and probably most immediate need would be that park slips if parked on a hill. I just used the parking brake and was planning on converting to a 3 speed so I didn't fix it. It will need a parking pawl (original is worn) if you want to fix it. The Pawl is around $45 used (they don't make new ones anymore) and can be bought online. It requires you to drop the valve body which isn't very complicated. Other than that it needs springs in the bottom door hinges. It will allow the door to open too wide if not held. Not sure why they are gone but they are around $3 a piece. Other than those relatively minor things the car is a great car. It definitely gets a lot of looks and is a great little car especially with the roof rack. Any questions please email me and I will get back to you quickly.Thanks
