While early Ford Falcons are a pretty common sight these days, Falcon wagons are not. That because rides like this 1963 Ford Falcon Squire Wagon are quite rare, with roughly around 2,000 or so produced. But this particular Ford Falcon Squire Wagon is probably one of a kind, thanks to the modifications that lie underneath its sleepy exterior.
For starters, the Falcon wagon is painted a pretty wild, custom shade of green, while the wood paneling is actually just airbrushed on in place of the factory-installed stickers. The original moldings do remain, however, while everything has quite a few custom touches added that really take the car over the top.
The interior is no less impressive, with a custom leather basket weave for the seats and headliner, extra padding for the leather-covered dash, custom gauges and switchgear, and a modern stereo system and DVD screens amid otherwise stock-looking panels.
Underneath, the Ford Falcon Squire Wagon rides on a fully custom frame with an air suspension setup, but what lies under the hood is the real attention-getter – a brand-new Roush V8 that produces 527 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.
The gorgeous, polished engine sports a fuel injection setup designed to look like old school Weber carbs, while it breathes through a custom exhaust that’s cut into the rear bumper. Meanwhile, it’s surrounded by new custom cut sheet metal that’s painted to match the car’s exterior, and the whole thing is simply stunning to look at.
And while this amazing Falcon might look like little more than a show queen, its owner actually drives the car quite frequently. In fact, he drove it out to the show where this video was filmed. But if we owned a cool, rare, powerful little wagon like this, we’d probably drive it any chance we got, too.
