Beautiful In Blue: 1961 Ford Falcon

Hailing from Woodland Hills, California, this 1961 blue Ford Falcon two door looks surprisingly, well, normal for a car that’s still in driving but not restored condition. The seller has a new child and thinks it’s time to get sensible about cars. It’s listed for sale here on eBay, where the buy it now is $7,500 but you are welcome to submit lower offers.

Yes, it has black plates! The chrome looks pretty nice as well. And the car only has 64,000 miles according to the seller. I’m sure the paint isn’t original, but it doesn’t look bad. I love the color. And those are even the original wheel covers!

If you look closely, you’ll see that the paint has some orange peel, but on the other hand, the emblems look really nice. We’re told it runs well but that the transmission could use some help, and that a set of tires would be in order. On the bright side, even the original radio works!

Mel Burns Ford (look at the license plate frame) was located in Long Beach, California. I’m guessing those are the original frames as well as the plates. Isn’t that cool? An inline six engine and an automatic transmission provide the motivation.

Although this picture is poor quality, you can tell that the interior is nice, and we are told it is “beautiful.” Is it beautiful enough for you to take it home? The seller will provide a car cover and the original manual if you do!

    I hope this guy wakes up and realizes that the kid will grow up. He spend years regretting selling his Falcon. He will never have one as nice again. He needs something to drive, might as well be this.

    Sale could be a bust!

    Unusual ebay ad for selling a car, more like a California lifestyle ad for tourism.

    My very first car was a 1960 Falcon. I drove it to high school in 1973 in western Pennsylvania. There were some steep hills on the way. The kids waiting at the bus stop at the top of one especially long and steep hill used to applaud and cheer when the old Falcon finally crawled over the top!

    I like the car, and would have liked to see more of its parts, not the wife’s! The price seems a little high to me though.

    If my pockets didn’t have holes in them, I would jump on this car in a half a heart beat! I have many memories of one just like this! Except, ours was a light blue!

    This was my grandma’s car! She cherished it and always said she would be buried in it. We JUST found out that my [now convicted felon] mother sold this unbeknownst to our entire family and we are desperately trying to locate it! I know this post is 2+years old, but if ANYONE has information on what happened to this Falcon (CA plate PQX 611) myself and my family would be ETERNALLY grateful. This car is extremely sentimental and invaluable to all of us. Any information is helpful. Feel free to email or text me (Cat) at, 714-915-4600. Thank you!
