It is 1961, John F. Kennedy is sworn in by Chief Justice Earl Warren as the 35th President of the United States and Ham the chimpanzee is the 1st primate in space (158 miles) aboard Mercury/Redstone 2. This cool 1961 Ford Falcon rolls off the assembly line. She is a bit different now compared to 1961. Built in the “Gasser” style. With: 302 CID roller motor putting our 400HP, Weiand high rise intake, dual Holly 350 carbs, 12qt oil pan, electric fuel pump, custom headers by Jays Hot Rods, C4 automatic transmission, trans brake, Line lock, Speedway straight axle, six point roll cage with swing out, all with less the 1,000 miles since the build.

1961 is the second year of the first generation introduced an optional 101 HP 170 CID six, and two new models were introduced; a bucket-seat and console sedan model in a higher trim level called the Futura, and a sedan delivery. Also, the Ford Falcon brochure featured Charlie Brown and Lucy from the Peanuts comic strip who remained until 1965. Ford boasted of the good fuel economy achieved by the six-cylinder Ford Falcon models in advertising. The fuel economy was good, a claimed 30 mpg compared to other American cars at the time. Edsel Ford first used the term "Falcon" for a more luxurious Ford he designed in 1935. He decided the new car did not fit with Ford's other offerings, so this design eventually became the Mercury.

The FE series 352 gets the car going down the road nicely with plenty of low end grunt to get you going. Drop that shifter into drive and let the cruise-o-matic do the rest. Shifting through all 3 gears nicely this car is meant to hit the road and cruise. If you have been wanting to get a classic 60’s era drop top that runs as good as it looks this 62 Galaxie is the one for you.
