It is truly hard to believe that this awesome 1963 Ford Falcon was rescued from a chicken coop where it had lived in raw steel for 15 years! That’s right, Roger Gaynor of Owosso, Michigan took possession of this car in March of 2016 in a very rough form. So rough, in fact, that his friend Bruce Rathburn nicknamed it “The Potato” because of all the surface rust the car had. Yes, you read that sentence correctly, Roger’s Falcon project was completed in a little less than a year! This little Ford has come a very long way in a very short time, and it is just great seeing how it has been transformed into the four wheel work of art it is now.
