Old school Falcon gets some help from Tunehouse

article_xk1

We see many late, high tech cars at Tunehouse but every now and then we get to work on some great classics. Take this 1960 Ford Falcon XK Deluxe for example.

The car came in with some nagging issues in the braking and steering areas. The team went to work while Jim tackled the engine – good thing Jim’s an expert on carburetors as the old girl needed some serious carby tuning done to make the engine work properly with the petrol/LPG system.

The result? Improved power and economy, steering and braking working perfectly and one happy owner. There’s still plenty of miles in this Falcon!

Old school touches abound – they certainly don’t make them like this anymore!

No airbags or adjustable steering column here, just the basics, clean and simple.

It may be a Falcon, but you won’t see many of those around. The XK is getting pretty rare these days.

No fuel injection here, good thing Jim knows a thing or two about carburetors!
