1962 Ford Falcon Wagon. Quick and peppy! 302 engine, V8, Automatic C4 transmission. Disc brakes. Manual steering. Cruise control. MSD ignition and distributor. Rear wheel drive. Good interior, needs a new headliner. Retro style stereo with usb. Lo jack. No leaks, glass and trims replaced 2009. 2 owner manuals and 1 shop manual.
Current 302 runs great. I have a list of all our fixes to the wagon since we owned it. I have a file with previous owners repairs.
Body has rust. and some cracks in the paint. Needs to be prettied up if that is what you want. Otherwise, this is a super daily driver. Very fun to drive and gets a lot of thumbs up when out and about.

The Pick of the Day is a 1965 Ford Falcon Squire, a compact station wagon in bright red with faux wood trim and chrome wire-wheel hubcaps, and powered by a 289cId V8.
Shortly before the advent of the Mustang as a midyear 1964 model, the hot ticket among compact Fords was the Falcon Sprint.
Spring has sprung, so it’s time to dust off the ragtop and go cruising.
OK, I admit it. I’m a sucker for Ford Falcons, most likely because my mom owned a ’63 Falcon sedan during my formative years.
To draw attention to the Falcon model line at the start of the Ford “Total Performance Era,” the Sprint model was added to the lineup in mid-1963.
