Howdy from Sonoma County

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

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.

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.
