1970 Ford Falcon 250 C.I.D inline 6
Basic no frills transportation
Not a lot for what it was. Reconditioned the cylinder heads at about 100,000 miles. Replaced one water pump and alternator. Car rusted out badly on all four doors and trunk lid.
This was a 1970 and a half Falcon, which I believe was similar to the Torino and Fairlane of the same era.
It was a very basic low end model - no power steering or brakes. Parallel parking was a chore to say the least. Plain black vinyl interior (seats, floor, dash etc) made it almost impossible to sit in in the summer heat.
It did what it was meant to do - get you from point A to B. Didn't handle great, and brakes were non power, so stopping left something to be desired. The 6 cylinder engine had adequate power and delivered reasonable mileage (mid 20's highway).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
