While the body is pretty good the chassis and the engine, not so much. The paint is Tamiya TS-60 Pearl Green body with Testors #1845 Mystic Emerald and TS-13 Clear. The flame decals are from a Revell '56 Nomad kit. I used '57 Ford Hub Caps and some steal wheels with parts box big and littles.

I see now why Falcon kits/built-ups are hard to find, Carl bought them all! :)

One of mine to kick things off.

I just came across this photo of some of the Falcon old built ups in my stash. I did restore the primer gray Ranchero from an original Craftsman kit

Bought this '62 with the intention of restoring but might leave it as is.

I love these old Falcons, nothing over the top about them but they always look good in any form, whether it be a base stock run-around or a full on gasser.

Falcon? I have a couple I can share. Beside the four shown here, I also have a '60 promo I rescued and restored, hidden away where it's not all that accessible.

I completely agree, such a cool platform to build on...whether a real deal one or in scale.

So many great builds here, love seeing them all.

The only two I've built so far.

This one I hope to restore/rebuild some day.  It was my dad's that he built sometime back in the late 60's early 70's I believe.  Its missing the left rear slick but otherwise seems complete.

Lovely. The Daddy Warbucks is super cool, I like that! The only Falcons I can find in the UK is the Ranchero by Trumpeter, it's pretty boxy. I've seen builds of them though and it's one on my to-do list for sure.
