Domestic Long Roof: 1962 Ford Falcon Wagon

Wagons remain one of the most under-appreciated classics (and daily drivers) out there, as it’s a rig you can use as you would any vintage vehicle with the added hauling capacity to make it more functional than most vintage rides. This 1962 Falcon wagon is slightly tatty around the edges but looks like a good foundation for driving as-is or restoring further. Find it here on craigslist for $4,800 in Philadelphia. 

The seller says one of the final pieces for restoring this Falcon is to install new carpets, which is odd considering the ones in the wagon now look usable as-is. Regardless, some heavy lifting has already been done as new metal has been welded in at the firewall and the floors. Minor body work and paint is still needed, according to the listing.

The six-cylinder mill is said to be in good running and driving condition, and is paired to an automatic transmission. The cool factory rear window still slides into the tailgate as intended, but details are otherwise scarce on the health of the suspension and other consumables that may need replacing on a Falcon of this vintage.

If you’re looking to start with even more of a clean-slate, consider this project-grade Falcon wagon that’s part of the large Georgia collection we’ve listed here as a Barn Finds exclusive. Fenders and glass will be included with the sale, and as per a motor, well – let your imagination figure that one out.

    Wow what a find! Too bad it didn’t have column shift 3-speed,and looks like it’s ready for a road-trip vacation!

    That “more of a blank slate“ car would be a good basis for a clone of the falcon wagon that Carroll Shelby used as a shop car.
    Almost anything that fits on an early mustang will fit on a falcon
