In case you were unaware, Mr. Regular Cars of Regular Car Reviews fame is busy rebuilding a 1960 Ford Falcon in an endeavor nicknamed “Project: Vagabond Falcon.” When we last checked in, he and his merry band of cohorts were disassembling a Ford 302 “Windsor” V8 to replace the Ford Falcon’s original inline-six.
But Christmas has come early for Mr. Regular Cars, it seems; above is the latest video out of that project, wherein he unboxes a bunch of new car parts for his “Vagabond” Ford Falcon, and comments on some of his purchasing strategy. Included in the shipment are two cans of “Ford Blue” engine paint to color the engine block and intake manifold. The paint is meant to help approximate that used on the original straight-6 that’s being replaced.
What else is in the box? New spark plug wires, a manual fuel pump, alternator bracket kit, handbrake cable kit, what looks to be a Holley fuel pressure regulator, and an Edelbrock carburetor air filter and housing. Some people have all the fun.
To hear all about the new 1960 Ford Falcon parts from Mr. Regular Cars himself – or just to check out his awfully dated shag carpeting – be sure to watch the video above.
