    Here's a 1962 Ford Falcon Deluxe Club Wagon I recently picked up. Their body is in sold shape and she drives well; I drove her home some 60 miles, 55-,65 MPH and no problems. Only has the two bucket seats, empty in the rear but I'm planning on doing a little side paneling and a floor; one that's done she'll probably be up for sale.

    Appreciate any suggestions as to where I can find some parts and any other "here's what to check" info.

    Thanks

    The previous owner did a 15 ft. paint job on the Falcon Deluxe, he said he simply wanted to protect her from the weather; not a bad job but not a "Show Room" job, it will do and does look fine to me.

    OK, don't tear me apart too much but here's what I'm doing to the Deluxe.

    As previously noted this was a "Father-Son" project and they (previous owners) did some (according to them) great work getting the van road ready and ready for whatever comes next.

    The Good (minor tweaking may be needed):
    * The interior floor was properly patched, welding could use some finishing (grinding, smoothing out",
    * Engine was rebuilt according to the previous owners and runs as it may have been;
    * Shifts good, little loose but my experience with "3-On-Da-Tree" shifters, well that's how they all were eventually;
    * All windows glass intact, clear, open, and close well.
    * Brakes stop, feel strong.
    * New rubber - four tires.
    * New dog dish wheel covers and beauty rings
    * Has the entire interior plastic, upper window moldings
    * Two front seats (supposedly original) not in bad shape
    * Has the Deluxe Side Trim (bright work) that looks great
    * Bumpers look great, chrome is clear and shiny

    The (not really bad) but in need of repair:
    * Horn doesn't work
    * Heater blocked off (too the core) so heat isn't engaging
    * Interior (in my mind) needs to be finished, too loud inside with everything exposed

    So; here's where I may get some comments, good or bad; I wanted to as quickly and costly (little as possible) get the interior looking a little better, sound deadening, etc. The following pics will show some of my work, and what I have accomplished so far.

    Once done, hopefully, in the next few weeks the van will be going to our last of the season, the local Dave & Eds Swap Meet, Canfield Fair Grounds, Canfield, Ohio.

    Comments and suggestions are always appreciated and welcomed.
