Actually I'm down to 11 with 3 for sale from a high of 25. So I am thinking smaller. But there are 5 cars on my really want list.

This car is better looking than the Torino, bucket seats, and a/c. A 429 and I would be driving there.

Actually the 351CJ was the big hp engine in 1972 at 248hp. the 429 was rated at 205hp.

Yep that 1972 de-tuning. But as Dyno Don said to a group of us at the track once: No replacement for BIG A.. displacement!

Not being an expert on 429s I'm told a '72 can come to life with minimum changes???

Special paint code car, it has a blank paint code and a 6 digit Detroit DSO.

Interesting car, but not among the top 50 dream cars on my bucket list.

Probably the best Cleveland package to ever debut in the US, as far as power and driveability are concerned. It makes those big girls it was installed in lift their skirts and hustle down the road pretty well.
Very well rounded performance for a porky car, especially with row-your-own gears. Really gratifying to drive.

yeah, the 72 can see considerable gains from very minor changes. The 429 is just a sleeper that year.


This one is a really neat looking car though.

One of my all-time faves. 400/C6 please.

I have a grille emblem from one of these. It looked pretty cool on my old 72 Montego wagon. (same plastic insert as a 66 Fairlane GT)

All I need is the money. Laid off three years ago and still looking for work so kinda hard to spend right now. Comp Blue would be my 2nd color choice after Comp. Green I have never seen or head of a SC360 4 Door. Do you mean 4 speed ?

One of the neatest cars I have owned was a new 1963 FALCON SPRINT, Black, Red interior, stick on floor, 260. I loved that baby, NOT A ROCKET, but fun car. You don't see many of them around.

Thanks for your WANT LIST.
