Well, after three years of looking for a '39 Coupe I could afford, I finally pulled the trigger on this '39 Ford Deluxe . I really wanted a flathead car and something I could build, but this one fell in my lap for the price of a local car & chassis I was interested in.
If it all goes well, I hope to have her home in a few weeks.

Thanks guys.
I probably won't be doing much with it for quite some time; this one definitely put a dent in the wallet, lol.

I think you could have on this one....
Did it involve a ski mask and weapon? 🦹‍♂️ As in you got such a good deal you stole it.

No ski mask or gun, but if the inspection/survey comes back clean, I think I did okay.

That's a confusing Falcon. I think that's a 65 grille & 64 Futura or Sprint side trim. It's hard to see on my phone, but is that a 65 Sprint emblem in front of the door? Or just a 64 V8 emblem without the separate Sprint script? Whatever it is, it's always good to see old square Falcons.

"This hairy looking, wildly modified Ford Falcon was built for A/Factory Experimental match racing. The Falcon carried a 427 Ford “FE” Series wedge engine and the long intake ram tubes that became iconic with A/FX racers.
Drake Viscome jumped into drag racing early, and with both feet. Originally from Carmel, in upstate New York, Viscome’s long string of race cars have always carried the name “Vindicator”, and for many years carried the name of Carmel Ford.

Drake’s drag racing heritage came directly from his family, or more specifically, his dad Greg Viscome. From an early age Drake went with him and his dad put him to work on his flathead Ford powered, Chassis Research K-88 D/Dragster. Drake started out wiping tires, cleaning tools and trying not to get run over in the pits of Montgomery County Dragway and the other NY drag strips frequented by his dad.

In many of the oldie-goldie photos the name Carmel Ford shows up, and it was that Ford dealer, in Carmel, NY that supported both Drake and his dad Greg’s racing early-on.

Drake cut his driving teeth at the wheel of dad Greg’s old D/Dragster, but quickly progressed to an A/Gas ’63 Mercury Comet powered by a 427 Ford medium-riser engine. In those days Drake was a regular at Dover Drag Strip, Connecticut Dragway, at Colchester, CT, Lebanon Valley Dragway and Island Dragway, at Great Meadows, NJ."
