Each week, one of the ClassicCars.com Journal editors takes their turn picking the vehicles they find interesting or appealing or spark some sort of nostalgia feelings from the AutoHunter auction docket.

It’s my turn this week, and as I was perusing AutoHunter I couldn’t help but notice all the classic Fords up for auction.

Here are the Blue Ovals that caught my attention the most on AutoHunter:

1961 Ford Falcon

Offered at no reserve is this unmodified 1961 Ford Falcon that stayed for three decades with its original owner, who passed away in 1994. This four-door sedan was then willed to the current owner, who refurbished the paint and interior.

It’s been resprayed in Starlight Blue over reupholstered blue plaid cloth interior that houses front and rear bench seats, a functional AM radio, heat and wing windows.

Powering the Falcon is a Mileage Maker 144cid inline-six engine factory rated at 95 horsepower and paired with a 2-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission and column-mounted shifter.

1966 Ford Mustang

You can’t make a list of classic Fords without a Mustang. AutoHunter has a refurbished 1966 Mustang, finished in a beautiful dark-blue metallic paint over a blue vinyl interior, that caught my eye.

Like the Falcon, this Mustang has been owned long term by the seller’s family and was garage kept for the majority of its life.

The interior features a custom center console with cup holders, a three-spoke steering wheel with the Mustang insignia in the center, a Hurst shifter and radio with rear deck-mounted speakers.

Under the hood is a rebuilt 289ci V8 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission.

1957 Ford Thunderbird

This 1957 T-bird, one of my favorite years in terms of design out of all the generations, comes from long-term family ownership.

Originally manufactured in Snowshoe white, this T-bird was later resprayed in black and given a color-matched removable hardtop. Take the hardtop off and you’ll expose a black-and-white vinyl interior with matching door panels and dash.

Power comes from a 312ci V8 equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and chrome-finished air cleaner and matted to a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic.

1948 Ford Super Deluxe Woody

Hit the coast with this 1948 Super Deluxe Woody resto-mod that wears its original wood and body panels. It even comes with a surfboard, which is pictured jetting out the trunk.

The wood trim is nicely contrasted with navy-blue paint and a matching navy-blue fabric roof. Inside sits 6-way power-adjustable caramel leather bucket seats, a custom center console with cup holders and a hidden modern stereo with Bluetooth connectivity.

Replacing the original Ford V8 is a 2019 GM LT1 crate engine connected to a GM 4L75-E 4-speed automatic. The engine wears custom Ford script on the valve covers.

1929 Ford Model A Pickup

What an eye-catcher. This 1929 Ford Model A refinished pickup is finished in two-town green with black fenders and bright yellow wire-spoked wheels that can’t be missed.

This Model A had been with the seller’s family for the past 15 years, and the seller notes that the steel body is straight and largely rust-free with replacement wood planks in the bed.

The interior houses a reupholstered brown-vinyl bench seat, manual-crank side windows, a hand-operated windshield wiper and a tilt-adjustable windshield for letting some air into the cab.

It’s powered by a numbers-matching 201cid L-head inline-four mated to a 3-speed manual transmission.
