My father bought this wagon new in 1962, and it was used as our family car until 1978, when my dad retired and decided he wanted a pick up truck so that he could haul things in it since us kids were all grown and out of the house.
While visiting my parents one day I was talking with my father when he casually mentioned that he was going to sell the Falcon. Since I had previously owned a Falcon sedan, I immediately was interested in my dad's wagon. I told him I would like to buy it from him, but he said if I want it he would give it to me. The next day we went to the DMV and transferred the title into my name.
I used it for several years as my daily driver, but because it was in such good condition I decided to purchase another vehicle and use the Falcon only for special occasions. Eventually I started entering it in local car shows and was surprised at all the attention it generated.
These days I go to as many car shows as I can, and feel truly blessed to be the owner of this beautiful example of American automobile history. I love this car and consider it my most prized possession.
