Jessie had a passion for classic cars too. I started of looking for late 30's to early 40's cars, that was a huge bust, for now. Then I was looking at late 40's to early 50's, that didn't go so well either. I decided that although it was not my first choice of period it was better to look at the muscle cars of the early 60's for a first effort.
I found what I thought was a great starter car, a 1962 Ford Falcon. Jessie's ears perked up, I knew he had a black 1962 Falcon that he had built into a "sleeper" drag car. Full bore V8 Super-Charger sub 10 second and all that stuff... way out of my league. His first statement was I have one you might be interested in? I thought what the heck do I want with a drag car? No you can't afford that one, I have another, a red one stashed away. I said what for "spare parts", little did I know I hit the nail on the head... Jessie had indeed bought this car for the simple purpose of stripping the headlight rims off for his black car. It had no engine and the drivers door was a bit smashed and laying on the roof of the car. I took one look it and said "SOLD".
It's a clean body with a good frame & interior.
Almost all the chrome is there too.
It was now the end of July 2014 - the project begins
