1964 Ford Falcon Convertible
Originally Edsel Ford wanted to use the Falcon name for a car in
1936, but he was out voted on the use of this name. Ford would have
to wait until 1960 to actually use that name. The second generation
of the Ford Falcon began in 1964 with a more squared off design,
and many upgrades including an engine upgrade. The convertible
option for this year only produced 6,191 units, and half way
through the year, this option was discontinued.
A frame-off restoration, with painstaking attention to detail is
presented with this Falcon Futura (bench seat) convertible.
Beautiful custom paint, all redone mechanicals, as well as every
square inch of the frame and undercarriage was meticulously
restored. A beautiful example of the year, but even better with
some tasteful restoration-modding customization thrown in for good
Dark Maroon 2 stage drapes this beauty, which presents very nicely.
Modern touches abound, with LED headlights, backup lights and tail
lights. A CHMSL sits on the top of the trunk lid just in case the
texter behind you doesn't see you are on the hooks with the LED
brake lights blazing. All chrome, brite work, badging and window
moldings are beautifully polished, and just add a magnificent touch
to the dark maroon. A note about some gaps, and alignment in the
steel panels are bit off, however the car is structurally sound,
and this could be the result of some detail overlook with the
installation of the sub frame connectors. Eagle 15" mag style
wheels are all around and are wrapped by low profile 195 X 60R X 15
radials. A new top of the line cloth convertible top which goes up
and down electronically like a dream, tops off this car. Consigner
states that only 1,500 miles have been clocked since the
restoration, and it would appear so, as this example is
Starting up front with a new padded dash kit, which houses all
Dakota digital gauges, allows the driver to keep exact track of all
systems assuring they are go. A Pioneer stereo/CD player with an
amp is nestled on there too, and pumps full tune throughout the
interior. All new interior, including seating, and carpet (a 50/50
front bench and rear bench, door panels etc.) sport power windows,
a Southern Air conditioning system which blows cold like a meat
locker, all weather stripping, and a top shaded windshield. Topping
the dash is a sprint style tachometer, and with the mill installed,
you can make the needle rise quickly!
A totally rebuilt 289ci power plant that happens to be bored over
by .30, and has a solid lifter cam with roller rockers, along with
Sanderson polished heads, throws torque through a new Richmond
manual close ratio 6-speed manual transmission, and back to a 9"
Plenty of eye candy even underneath with a T.C.I. complete Mustang
II front suspension, slotted disc rotors, and a power rack, rear
disc brakes, a Power Master high torque starter, chromed power
booster, and master cylinder, and a custom exhaust system to suck
those fossil gases away from the mill quickly. A trailer hitch and
wiring kit is there for the taking of any extras you may want to
pull behind on your ROAD TRIP!
A truly sweet build, with many upgrades and extras for performance
and looks, this 1964 Falcon will make other builds out there, easy
prey with the setup it has. A great runner, smooth shifter, and a
melodious tune from the exhaust, this car is truly a 2019 version
of 1964, and can be shown or run all day. Grab your hat when the
top is down and tell your passenger seat cover to tighten her
bandanna, we're rollin!
