Samantha Rawson's 1965 Ford Falcon Front 3/4

The body is a 2 door hardtop which was already painted in PPG Midnight Blue, so a few custom mods were performed. A Crites Performance "teardrop" hood scoop was added to get fresh air into the engine compartment, plus give the car that serious race look. A filled deck lid was also added, and then said hood and deck lid was treated to several coats of PPG Midnight Blue paint to match the rest of Sam's cool machine. Finishing touches on the outside consist of Oracle halo headlamps and Fierce LED taillights.

The inside of Sam's interior was freshened up with custom door panels, and cloth upholstered Eagle Talon seats in a light gray. Topping off the clean stock dash is compliments of a Grant metal flake steering wheel. A Pioneer head unit along with Pioneer front and rear speakers, were all installed by Chris Burgo. Next on the list of things to do was the electrical wiring, which Sam said was the most challenging part of the build. So the electrical was put in the capable hands of Kenny Robbins of Edwardsburg, Mi., having rewired the whole car from front to back.
