From Marion & Joe:

"This car was purchased from the original owner in Smithtown in 1988. It has a 6 cylinder engine, a C-4 automatic and it was used for my children to drive to High School and College. It went to Colorado for two years, then lived in PA for 5 more before returning to Long Island.

My son and I had just finished his 1965 Flacon and decided to do another project. We back-halfed my Falcon with our own home-made frame, installed a Chris Allston ladder bar suspension and Ford narrowed 9" rear. We also added disc brakes and installed a home-made dash panel, bucket seats, and a custom interior."
