1964 Ford Falcon Convertible
The Falcon line of cars have always had a huge following. In fact, there are quite a few clubs and organizations dedicated to Falcons alone. That being said, production of the Falcon was short lived only spanning from 1960 to 1970. In 1964 the Falcon was redesigned to incorporate a more distinct cove along the side which you will often see painted a different color. This design lasted through 1965 before it was changed up again. Even though it only lasted 2 years this look is a favorite among collectors and many of the Falcons you see out at car shows fall into these 2 years. The 1964 Falcon Convertible you see here is a nice running classic. It is coated in Black with Red along the sides which is a great color combo. It has topped with all of the original style trim, chrome and emblems which are all there. Under each corner you will find the original style wheels and hubcaps with thin white wall tires.
Getting those wheels turning is the original 260 V8 motor that runs well. Chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner are in place but a majority of the motor is painted in the original Ford Blue. Paired with it is an automatic transmission.
The interior of the car is done in Red and is mostly original. Dual bucket seats are up front and are separated by the original style center console. The dash is painted Red and topped with the original components with an underdash AC unit. To break up some of the Red the convertible top was done in White and looks great. It raises/lowers with ease and is in good condition.
Throw the top down and start cruising for $25,750.00!
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.

There’s something special about an old car that’s been left alone
Watching a long-promised moment happen is pretty awesome
Besides Shelby Cobra and Sunbeam Tiger, a number of overseas brands installed American V8s into their cars for strong, reliable performance
