Tell Us About Your Classic Falcon

Seeing as this is the CLASSIC FALCON (tm) section of the forum, I was interested to see how many older Falcons are about on FordForums.com Post model, details, modifications and anything else interesting.



I'll start. Mine is a 1974 XB Falcon GT, Apollo Blue with Black Cloth Trim.

I have recently finished restoring my XC GS 351 ute and it has come up a real treat. I am now also restoring my original XC Cobra #140.
