    1962 Ford Falcon 2-door Ratwagon

    Here's my finished ratrod Ford wagon project: it has a 302/C4 combo from a '72 Grabber Maverick, 2.5" Flowmaster exhaust with H-pipe crossover, all new Mustang front end rebuild parts from NPD, 8" rearend and front discs from a '78 Grenada, lowered 2.5" by cutting the front coils s and using over-axle lowering blocks in the rear, shaved door handles, and a host of other mods:

    look at that....

    you and my son would get along very well......

    I built a 63 falcon for him a few years back, , the car is sold now, sadly.....

    great little car......

    ours was running the 6 banger 144ci.....and three on the tree. I lowered it too, loads of other mods too.

    I have a thread on it here.....i will see if i can find it and bump it for you
    Build it yourself, then at least you know it will be right.

    I just did...yours was an awesome build, Steve.

    Mine belonged to my now-deceased father-in-law, who bought it from the original owner in the '70s...he gave it to me about 25 years ago, making me the third owner. It originally started with a 144 and a 3/tree, too, and the wife drove it that way for about 15 years as an extra vehicle, and then my oldest son became of "driving age" and we decided to make it a father-son project, and convert it to a hotrod...it was a fun, bonding project for us both.

    He eventually bought a 1974 Plymouth Duster with a 318 (another father-son project, link here: http://internationalchristineclub.ne...678#post142678), which we sold for a 1997 Land Rover Discovery I...the biggest mistake we ever made, as far a being able to work on it, lol.

    Very cool! Those wagons were very neat little cars. Plus a 2-door! I'm kinda partial to the 2-door wagons (I've got 5 of them!!), they get a double take from folks. I bet it's a double-double take with the shaved handles on yours!

    Which by the way Pedro, isn't it time for you to sell one, buy another?
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    Thanks, Bob...it's a head-turner, especially when I make a turn, and the front fenders make a roaring noise and do the "Christine jiggle" because of the low stance and the front tires scrubbing.
