1964 Ford Falcon Custom - REDUCED $43,000 USD
Subtle and tasteful, a custom pro-touring build of a 1964 Falcon. Under 3000 miles since completion. Stunning attention to quality and fitment. Many one-off modifications, unnoticeable to the casual observer, take this Falcon taken to the next level.
From the integrated O.E.M.1969 Boss Mustang Shaker hood scoop up front, to the ladder bar setup with coil-overs out back, no detail was overlooked. The professionally built 302 V8 breathes through an Edelbrock intake, Holley Street Avenger carb, Holley Aluminum heads, a roller cam, BBK coated headers, a custom 2.5” exhaust and x-pipe that exits the sides through custom tips.
Power is put to the ground through a Tremec 5 speed transmission. The clutch is a custom hydraulic setup with custom built pedal assembly. The rear axle is a freshly rebuilt and shortened 8.8-inch Ford that houses a new 370 Auburn posi-trac gear and custom axles.
The front suspension is based on a Mustang II with tubular upper and lower control arms, power rack and pinion steering, Ford spindles and update power disc brakes all around. The aggressive stance was achieved by raising the frame and floors by 3 inches.
The customization continues inside with the one-off custom vacuum-formed console, billet instrumentation panel with AutoMeter gauges, Kenwood audio system, concealed 12-point roll cage and custom seating. The list of high-end performance and OEM replacement parts used in this build is voluminous. No expense was spared.

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.
