    This is a pretty cool car.It pre-dated the Mustang by almost a year, making it kind of the 1st pony car. Old story, but bears repeating. In HS, I had an older friend that was into Falcons. He had a 63.5, like this, only 6 cylinder, buys a ’65 Sprint, that I remember being pretty solid, and tore the motor and 4 speed out of the ’65 and, cobbled it into the 63, and JUNKED THE ’65 SPRINT! ( and then wrapped the 63 around a tree). That’s how it was then. These were just beaters. Look at them today. Very nice car.

    I dunno, 27 large for a Falcon?? Maybe it’s just me, but there’s quite a few other cars, including some with appreciation potential that I’d buy for that kind of money before I’d buy a Falcon. But what do I know? All my cars have steering wheels on the right side!

  7. FastEddie/OldEddie: pick one

    Am curious: in a few of the pices, the front wheels appear to be straight, but the RH steering wheel spoke is higher in position than it should be.
    What is the story: optical illusion, I need to get that cataract operation done asap, or is it rotated for some reason?

    Odd story: way back in the day, two elderly ladies were travelling the Queen Elizabeth Way, In Ontario, Canada, in a Falcon convertible, when a gust of wind picked it up, and flipped it off the road: the ladies were thrown out, and it landed upside down. The ladies did not suffer anything other than minor scrapes.

      The pics were taken in 2 places
      The ones with the spoke pointing up are when the car’s on grass and in the others it’s on pavement

    What a great car! Just add a teardrop spotlight on the top, centered over the windshield, and you can be Jo Bonnier whipping around the mountains on the way to Monte Carlo.

    Ride height too high with the new springs. Looks like the off-road/SUV edition.

      Nah, that’s the “you can run over roadkill without tearing the oil pan off” spring set. Quite popular here in western Pennsylvania.

    Beautiful car. I didn’t think the Granada came out til 75? Maybe 75 Granada spindles? Always a fan of the ragtops. Why the engine swap? Was it numbers matching? Still a nice car!

    • DON

      Granada/Monarchs were built 1975 -80

    A nice little car that is a driver that you don’t have to do anything but get in!! Most of the upgrades that I read seem to be practical maintenance!! There is stuff there that are upgrades but in my opinion it was the things you do to keep your car dependable!!!

    Many of these cars were cut up and drag cars they became. I even think Hot Rod mag did a budget race car to see how fast for minimum cash. These cars look great with a tear drop hood scoop on them. Either air shocks in back or front straight axle gasser style skying the front end, no bumper or grill.

    It is amazing that this car has survived this long.

    This look like a cool Falcon they are getting rare well done
