I purchased my Falcon Sprint convertible in 2001 from an elderly couple (when I was a young 67 years old). I then installed a power brake unit, new interior and top, new wheels and tires, dual exhaust system, and rebuilt the power steering. The paint was good, and only needed a good rub-out. Three years ago, I drove my Falcon to Sun City Center-- a 1,200 mile trip--with no problems. And here we are.
