The Pick of the Day is a 1965 Ford Falcon Squire, a compact station wagon in bright red with faux wood trim and chrome wire-wheel hubcaps, and powered by a 289cId V8.
Shortly before the advent of the Mustang as a midyear 1964 model, the hot ticket among compact Fords was the Falcon Sprint.
Spring has sprung, so it’s time to dust off the ragtop and go cruising.
OK, I admit it. I’m a sucker for Ford Falcons, most likely because my mom owned a ’63 Falcon sedan during my formative years.
To draw attention to the Falcon model line at the start of the Ford “Total Performance Era,” the Sprint model was added to the lineup in mid-1963.
