Just finished this one up. You can see from the before pic that it was a mess when I got it. That's still the same factory Oxford Blue metallic finish in the after pics. Alclad II for the bumpers. Can't keep 'em all, so this one will be heading to evilbay.

Well done restoration.  What'll something like that go for on the bay?  Excuse my ignorance, I hardly ever go there :blink:

Every time I mention Falcons to my father he talks about how the only colors they came in were blue and green and the only people who drove them were farmers who tried to plow down motorcyclists.My dad loves to ride motorcycles. Something makes me think he has had a few bad memories of them. :lol:

 

Great job on the paint.

That's my kind of car, and also my kind of model!!!

Very nice work saving the original paint, and also on the detailing.

Nice! Speaking of ebay, why did you decide to sell it off?

That's a very nice looking little Falcon Al! I love these little cars and have a lot of memories with them. It would be hard for me to give that little model up! Nice work and I hope you do well with selling it!
