This 1962 Ford Falcon Gasser is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. A gasser is a type of hot rod that grew in popularity until the early 70's. They are stripped of any extra weight and jacked up using a beam axle which provides better weight distribution during hard acceleration. With fiberglass body panels and stripped out interiors these cars were designed to go fast in a straight line. The name arose because they competed in a gasoline-fueled drag racing class, rather than one using methanol or nitromethane. This 62 Ford Falcon is possibly one the nicer Gassers to be built. Typically Gassers are a little rough around edges due to the hard lives they live at the track. This car is a fresh with only 3600 miles on it since completion. The Jail Bird gained it’s due to its history. As part of a project to keep prisoners engaged and teach a useful trade, this Falcon spent 3 years in the Kentucky State Corrections body shop. The Falcon was completely disassembled, reassembled twice for fitment, and then disassembled for paint. Maybe if “Cool Hand Luke” had been involved in such a project, he would have spent less time in the hot box. The resurrection of this bird has documented with photos, included in the sale, and receipts of all parts purchased. The exterior has been painted in a beautiful Yellow. Under the original steel hood is a Chevrolet 350 CID engine. Power goes from the engine to a Turbo 350 automatic, and then makes it way to a custom built Ford 9 inch rear end .A quick look in the cabin will reveal an interior much nicer than a normal Gasser would sport. The front buckets and rear seat have been cover in very tasteful black and white vinyl. Carpet has also been installed giving this Gasser a much plusher look than normal look. If for some reason you were actually to get tired of listening to the glorious sound of the beastly engine, there is a nice AM/FM radio to listen to your favorite tunes, but it will need to be hooked up for power. Options on this 1962 Ford Falcon Gasser includes; AM/FM radio, Vinyl Interior, and Chrome Cragar with wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.
