   Russell Smith       

   

This  is a photo of Russell Smith's Falcon Sports Mark 1 named the Falcon Roadster. The photo was taken at the Uxbridge show two years ago. The car is still showing it's original colours of Cream and Green.
He bought his Falcon  in June 1988 from Francis Lewis who lived in Ormskirk, Lancashire.

Russell lives in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. He would be a very handy chap to have around as he is a TIG welder to trade, specializing in stainless steel and aluminium.

He has just finished preparing his car for M.O.T. and one part he had to repair was the stainless steel manifold, which developed a crack, not bad when you consider that he made the manifold 12 years ago and he uses his Falcon every day of the year

Another job he has tackled is changing the Pinto engine for a Rover SDI 3.5 Litre V8 engine.

However he says never again. It involved a lot of work. 

Russell first contacted me to trace the history of his car and I can sometimes do this through past membership lists. In this case I could find no trace, however Dave Ashley of JBA came to the rescue and on checking their records found that his car had been built at the factory in 1984 for an owner who lived in Appley Bridge near Wigan. 

The First JBA Falcon was built in 1982 and the JBA Owners Club did not come into being till 1987 and was started by Geoff Payne MBE.

I was quite pleased to receive this photo as it goes to show the quality of the cars.
Look for more photos from Russell once he has finished his engine transformation.

More to be added to this page later.
