For a guy known for having one of the most envied car collections in history Jay Leno sure surprised us when he recently acquired his dream car. We were thinking somewhere along the lines of the only 1963 Chevrolet Corvette “Rondine” ever built or, maybe, Carroll Shelby’s own 1969 GT500 convertible. But, to hear him tell it Leno’s true love has always been the 1963 ½ Ford Falcon Sprint he’s “fantasized about” since he was a wee lad. Which is why it’s so cool he recently found one – built, he says, just the way he would have built it – for just $26,000 on bringatrailer.com. He proudly shows off his new baby in the video below.
