My Car - Snapshot!

July 2001

Time left until car goes into body shop for paint:

Welcome to the SNAPSHOT!!!!! section. Here, I will post new pictures of my car as I progress in my Ford Falcon restoration, with big plans for the future..........

In this section, I hope to chronicle the restoration process.  Hope you enjoy the show, and email me if you have any ideas!

Early June had me heading down to St. Louis to collect car parts.  Mark Dinzebach had several 65s that were being parted out and were unfortunately destined for recycling.

With the help of Mark and company, we cut up the cars and I loaded an entire passenger compartment floor, a cowl, and assorted body sheet metal to graft into my project.


The white hardtop pictured on the top of the page is one of the Gateway Chapter's member Don Branson cars.  He greeted us at his farm from racing his beautiful 64 Sprint, and showed us his assorted Falcons, including a 5.0 1964 Convertible, and his first Falcon!  The hardtop gave up its front fenders and windshield to my car.

Thanks to all of these helpful folks I came home with everything I need!  Now to work!

Mike in Chicago
