Feature Falcon, "T" Parker Wetumpka, AL
COVER: DR. JOE STRICKER'S 1962 RANCHERO, David Stricker, (FCA #09184) submitted the cover photo of his father's 1962 Ranchero. Taken in the summer of 2013, the car is shown loaded with branches cut from neighborhood trees. Dr. Joe Stricker bought the truck new in 1962. David and his dad drove the Ranchero to the FCA Nationals in Sacramento, California in 2000. At that time, it had the still-working original radio, a rebuilt inline six, new floor pans and new window linings and trim. Dr. Stricker is 88 years old and doesn't drive it around much now, but when David visits, he puts it to work. David says,"It gets all kinds of compliments and people tell us stories about the Falcon they had. It's had many paint jobs over the years—all on top of each other—which probably helped protect it from rust."
