Falcon Van Interiors

Post by Hangtime on Wed Oct 22, 2008 7:34 pm

Howdy Everybody,
I'm a new guy here and I have some questions about the falcon vans. I am looking to buy an E series van and I want a window van. I have seen some with interior trim/surround around the windows, is that trim standard on all falcon vans?
Thanks

Not all Falcon vans had the window trim.

I don't think a base Falcon has window trim. A Falcon Deluxe or Clubwagon would have the trim. Similar to the Dodges...a Sportsman did not have many ammenities whereas the Custom Sportsman was loaded with all the nice interior goodies.

It's not standard equipment... but it could have been originally ordered on the standard Club wagon - mine was.

I've been casually looking for replacement pieces since someone drilled small holes for curtain rods into mine. More than likely I'll end up filling the holes and painting.

Good luck with your purchase... and have fun shopping!

they had different trim levels. we have a DCW (deluxe club wagon) that has all that trim around the windows, the dash skirt, chrome bympers and the stainless body trim.

the wife and I are talking of selling it. probably this summer or late fall.

Austin, that is one clean looking Falcon. What size motor do you have in it? She's a real beauty with all the extra trims! cheers

vanny, it has the original 170. we liked it b/c it was very original, all the little bits and pieces are there, and it was a driver. the previous owner had it painted (inside and out), motor rebuilt (from what I was told) and then he had a stroke, let it sit for 10 years. he lost the keys, and I bought it. it ran rough when I got it home. I replaced the fuel tank, and then I let it sit for nearly a year. then I ran into problems so I just had it towed off to a old school professional hotrod-restoration guy.

well see how we feel about it when we get it back. our enthusiasm for it has declined over the last few months.

one thing that is not obvious from the pics, there is heavy metallic flake in the paint, Im not sure it wouldve been my choice. also the pssngr door has bondo on it that has cracked. otherwise, very rust free and clean.

Thanks for all the info Austin, if you decide at some point to let it go, keep us posted. If you get it back and fall in love with it again, even better. She's a real beauty!Very Happy
