Howdy from Sonoma County

Post #1 by henrydreil » Mon Feb 12, 2018 8:04 pm

Hey,
My name's Henry. I live in Healdsburg, CA located in wine country. I joined to gain more information in the restoration of my 1962 Ford Falcon with a 170 CI L6. I'm a high school student soon to go off to college and have gotten into the classics in the last two years. Just hoping to get some info and help others where I can.

Thanks,

-hd

Welcome to the Ford Six site Henry, post some pictures of your 1962 Falcon 170 maybe also start a project build in the Falcon forums too when you have time. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

That is a good ride. I learned to drive in an early Falcon.
Look into the Falcon Performance Handbook it is a very useful resource for maintenance and modification.
66 Bronco-1970 250, NV3550, DSII, 4 turn ps, uncut, 1" bl, 2.5" sl, front disc, twin stick D 20, 30 x 9.50
NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

New guy? Get the Falcon Performance Handbook and Ford six high performance parts from https://vintageinlines.com
