I had found this Falcon at a flea market near my home. It was (very badly) assembled & painted, but for 2€, I bought it anyway (ever tried to buy one on eBay these days ?)
I carefully disassembled it & stripped the paint. Then I sent the plated parts to Chrome Tech for a fresh bath of chrome.
I (re)built it box stock, using only its original parts. I was fortunate enough that everything was salvageable (even the tires which were surprinsigly soft after 50 years !). I only added ignition wires.
