Own Aaron Kauffman's Falcon!

Looks a little rough in some of the close ups, but it is a car that has actually been raced.

This may be the highest price paid for a 63 Falcon?

Fun fact: you can see my office on Main Street here in Fort Worth where Aaron made this video...


I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

He has to get paid first. I think we've all seen buyers reneging once they won the auction. But I think the current bid is reasonable. The car does has history to it and you're not going to build something like that for that money. I like it.

Never heard of him. My first thought upon seeing this thread title was this might be one of those cool vintage 1960's rally or Gran Prix Falcons or something. Nope. I AM disappointed.

Typical GMG build. I guess not working for RR isn't paying the bills. At least happy to see he removed that hideous a$$ LED bar off the front. I think the car was much better with its original race patina when he bought it.

Regards,
Patrick

Good God. I'd refinance my house and pay the 65K for Aaron's car before I gave $500 for that
