Early Falcon Car Club of Queensland


1960 Falcon Deluxe XK - Mr Al Sweeney


Well I checked the timing with a 30 year old light I found in my fathers shed with dead geckos and it was 10 degree out but the needle seat in the carby was sticking so I got Bob from Ipswich carburettor service (0412 668 173) to do his magic, he did a wonderful job tracking down a full kit for me and refinished the carb body to look like new and lots of shinny bits to impress the old guys looking at the engine bay.

This is one of those projects that followed me home 9 years ago and for some reason it is still there. I found her in a very sorry state dumped outside my local wreckers and I felt sorry for her and brought her home. I hide it the corner of my shed till I had time. In the mean time I have moved four times and she is still with me. Since it her 50th birthday this year we thought we would give her a fresh coat of paint and some seats and crank up the old girl.

I will update the progress via the web site, please email me if you have any hints or pearls of wisdom that can help us on the way.

Kind regards,

Al Sweeney
