Have You Seen This Wagon?

Post #1 by Falcon Wagon 72 » Sun May 25, 2008 8:02 pm

Hi my name is Ariel, and I am a Falcon Wagon 1972 owner from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I'd like to ask if anyone have seen this wagon on the net, or better have any other picture of it, I love this wagon from the first moment I saw it, and I'd like to do some work on mine to look pretty much the same 8)

Thanx :wink:

It has a 62 grill and 62/63 front fenders. There weren't any 5 lug V8 62 Squires...
Same peep mirrors as I've got.
If you don't have it already, a complete set of the "wood" trim will be EXTREMELY difficult to obtain. I spent more than a year chasing down -one- piece that was missing a foot long chunk on mine.

That's not a '72 in the photo. But it's likely our Argentine friend has a '72 round-body. Here's why...

They continued to produce round-body Falcons in Argentina for many, many years after the end of production in the USA. Carmakers used to send the tooling for discontinued domestic models to other countries for production. So the round-body lived on for many years...except they can only be found in South America...

Yes that's right, I forgot to tell you the Wagon is not an US or Australian version.

It is an Argentine version and it was in production since 1967 till 1991

The Wagon is most likely an US Falcon 62/63 4 door Sedan but with "a larger" roof :roll: .

So that's the first problem I have...

The wood trim of the Squire Wagon simply do not fit in my wagon, maybe the half of it yes, but the rear end parts... :x

I try to figure out how to "make" all the "wood" trim if it is possible, or in the worst case...just paint it :oops:

Soon I'll put a photo of the car in question.

Well I have some pictures of the Wagon, and I hope don' t look so "weird" for you :roll:

Note: There is a LOT of work to do, especially in the body :wink:

Image

The engine is a 6 cilinder, with 188", and 116HP at 4500 RPM, enough power for me, at least for now :lol:

And here is the new transmission, FAE 3.25 - 4 speed

So what kind of sterring does a '72 have compared to a united states '60-'63 round body.The Round body in the U.S has a narrower frame and for those of us that would like a Rack and pinion sterring.Is difficult to find something that works.I go to TODO (sp) and look can't read spanish.FALCONS are cool no mater where they come from we can all learn.Thanks Ken N.

Areil, From what I know, the Argentine falcons seem to be derived from the Australian cars of about the 1966, the wagon is like ours aand the sedans are our XP with different fronts.
The engines are the XT XW model 188 and 221 ci, the special head is similar to the aussie 250-2v, but in my view improved. The aussie head cam out in 1971, and the argentine was later I believe, and the 250-2b inlet is a bit tight in the early 66 engine bay so the Argentives pull the manifold face closer to the cylinders.
You my be able to tell me more of the history of the cars.

I would sure like to try one of those heads seen some info few years back. Looked like they were the best design of any of the Ford built ones and way ahead of our US version. :cool:

Seven years ago went on a mission trip to Quilmes, Argentina. Round bodies everywhere; sedans, four doors, wagons, Rancheros. In every trim from saloon to full boogie street racer. Remember folks this is the land of Juan Fangio. Wonderful people.
Walked into an auto parts store ask for steering box for '65 Falcon. Counterman asked new manufacture or rebuilt? Bought new box, shaft, rag joint, top bearing, pitman arm. All in stock off the shelf. All v-8 pieces.
Price? ain't going to tell you, but it makes US suppliers look like thieves.
Didn't get to use thanks to hurrecane Ike, probably be selling if I don't find another Falcon.
