"62 Falcon Rat"     1962 Ford Falcon

Introduction / Overview:

This is my fisrt father son project with my 15yr old Jacob. I wanted it to be something fun that he can have/drive next year when he gets his DL. We started off with a basic goal of a RatRod daily driver, but hit a budget crunch almost right away. So I have been scrounging for componants to keep the project alive.

Drivetrain: I6; Started right up after years of sitting
Chassis:

The Frame and suspension are in decent shape and just need a little TLC and some paint.

Wheels and Tires: Sitting on stock 14" flats but I recently had a great guy donate some old school 13" alum. slots. Now I just have to find some rubber to put on them.
Body & Paint: The Body is straight, and sitting in primer. I am going to do some clean up and then I am considering painting it myself ( never done that ) or since this is a going to be a teenagers Rat maybe going with old Earl Schieb.
Interioir:

It's all there and in decent shape. with a little sanding and a few rattle cans of paint we will have a usable interior. We want to grab a few buckets for the front seats and reuse the back bench.  The biggest problem is the "view floor" or lack of a floor pan. I have found some on line for about $132 per side. but that will have to wait for some money to through at it.
