1963 Falcon Squire Wagon - Rare Bird
Training A Wild Falcon To Hunt Small Game Is Not Easy; Turning Ford's Example Into A Show Winner Isn't Either
"We were looking for someone to paint the wood on the sides and Dennis was the best out there," said Jeff. "We went on a cruise in Hawaii and went to his shop. When we told him about the Falcon he was very excited and ended up coming to Salt Lake where we got it prepped for him to paint. Then I cleared and candied all the airbrushed wood."
Once they acquired the 527hp Roush engine, Jeff went about designing and building the frame and suspension that would work best with that amount of power. This was done utilizing an amalgamation of parts from an Art Morrison frame and Air Ride suspension. The rear is a canted four-bar setup, while the front is a Mustang II-style manufactured by Rod & Custom Motorsports.
The interior may have been last but it is definitely not the least. The cabin is ensconced in tan Porsche leather. The carpet is the same color but a different German marque, Mercedes. Take a look in the cabin and you see the surfboard cutout etched into the headliner with leather accents. The seats are Ford Taurus SHO six-way power adjustable. The icing on the cake is the Billet Specialties steering wheel and the dash swathed in leather from, you guessed it, Porsche. If the Pages had to cross over to another brand for various items this has to be the best one.
Jay and Jeff Page have taken this once dilapidated barn find and turned it into nothing less than queen of the sky. Like two great Falconers, they turned this once pinned peregrine into a phenomenal Falcon worthy of the numerous accolades, attention, and praise it receives. But don't let this one fly off. With 427 cubic inches, 527hp and 550 lb-ft of torque under the hood it may never come back.
