CORINTHIAN WHITE, BUCKET SEATS, 4 SPEED MANUAL, DUAL EXHAUST, FUN TO DRIVE
Fall in love at first sight, this Falcon will make you look twice with affordability, great looks and classic style. This 1961 Ford Falcon brings classic car fun, with 6 cylinder efficiency yet has a nice rumble thru the flowmaster dual exhaust.
The compact body of this Falcon has been sprayed in a soft white finish. It's a simple color for a simple car that doesn't claim to be anything it's not. Walking around this car you realize that it's an older restoration, that's the appeal of this car's modest character. What it lacks in perfection, it more than makes up for in personality. It has all of the bits we love about classic cars: chrome, fun styling, badges that aren't made of plastic, and pressed sheet metal that reminds us of a time when cars were built to be tough. When it's all said and done, that sheet metal remains straight and the doors shut with confidence with fairly even gaps.
A light blue, vinyl interior complements the white exterior well. The front buckets appear to be from a later model, they're comfortable and offer plenty of adjustment. All of the trim appears to be present, giving the cabin an upscale feel, and the vinyl on the seats and door panels appear decent. A center console provides ample storage space between the bucket seats, while a Hurst shifter with cue ball knob is within easy reach for the driver and fun to drive. The dash retains the nostalgic charm with the original AM radio still residing in the center. The only addition comes from an oil pressure gauge that has been mounted under the blue dash. And capping off the appeal of this cockpit is the handsome, wood-trimmed 3-spoke steering wheel that is always a welcome sight.
There may not be any V8 power coming from under the hood, but you can't deny the fun factor the perky inline 6 provides. Believed to be a C6DE 200 cubic inch motor, the little engine fires to life with a rumble that is comparable to a V8. It creates a distinct growl and is certainly rev happy. Power travels to a 4-speed manual that shifts with ease, and when you're taking this out on the town you're going to have a blast rowing through the gears with the cool sound coming from the dual exhaust. It appears typical items have been replaced or addressed as needed. Fortunately, parts are cheap and easy to replace on this classic so it's the perfect candidate for the enthusiast who likes maintaining their own vehicles.
This 1961 Ford Falcon is a great buy for the person who wants a classic as their daily driver, an entry level enthusiast who wants an affordable car to get in the hobby with, or someone looking to start with a solid shell and create something from their own vision. It's almost like an American icon. It's efficient, affordable fun with endless possibilities. Call today!
