The upgraded V8 from the Falcon six cylinder engine was the 260 c.i. V8 produced on the same assembly line with other 1964 Fords, the early models were titled as 1965 models although they were actually from the 1964 production era. After September 1964 the 260 V8 was dropped in favor of the larger 289 V8 like this particular car.This particular example boasts its original 'Candyapple Red' T code) color paint with a Luxury White Pony bucket seats interior and was built with the C4 automatic transmission and a 2.80:1 axle.
