1963.5 Ford Falcon Sprint Restomod Heads To Auction

When Mecum Auctions comes to Kissimmee, Florida from January 6th through the 15th, the rather stunning 19631/2 Ford Falcon Sprint pictured above will cross the auction block.

A high-performance restomod with a 427-cubic-inch “Cammer” V8 and a C4 automatic transmission, this tasteful-yet-wild Ford Falcon is motivated by a stunning 700 horsepower. The engine was built by Knoxville, Tennessee-based shop Barillaro Speed Emporium, and boasts a new block, head, crank, and rods, and dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors each flowing 600 CFM through an aluminum plenum. Ignition is handled by an MSD distributor, Blaster Coil and ignition wires, and reliable cooling is assured by a heavy-duty aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.

However, lest we assume that this vintage Ford Falcon Sprint restomod is purely about straight-line speed, the Mecum website also lists a smattering of handling-related upgrades – custom A-arm front and 4-link rear suspensions, adjustable coilover shocks, and Wilwood brakes – to help the car achieve some competence on the road. The rear of the car was modified to accommodate massive, 15-inch-wide rear tires to transfer the engine’s mighty torque to the pavement.

Mecum anticipates that this 19631/2 Ford Falcon Sprint restomod will sell for between $100,000 and $125,000 when it goes up for bidding. Be sure to tune in on Saturday, January 14th to find out.

    Have you seen any 1962 Mercury Monterey S55 Hardtops with T10 Borg Warner 4 speed transmissions? I had one and it’s still my favorite.
