64 falcon convertible please read description and give me your opinions! Vid 2
Okay, if you watched my first video, you know I just bought a 64 vert, and
this is my 65 hardtop. I need some help restoring my vert. If you watched
my vid, you know that I am going to restore this car, and here are a few of
the different ways I have thought about going with it.
Option 1 - all original, rotisoree restore.
Option 2 - McPherson strut system with a mild small block 289 or 302
Option 3 - Get a fox body Mustang and graft in the suspension,
using the drivetrain suspension etc.
Option 4 - Heidt's rack and pinion system a mild built 302, 5 speed, etc.
Option 5 - Heidt's rack and pinion, Jag independent rear suspension, a
nasty 302, 6 speed, etc.
Now i know all you motor heads will say go with option 5, but money is
tight, and while I don't have to pay for labor as I build it all myself,
parts can get up there pretty quick. Let me know what you think, thanks,
Bob's Fabulous Falcon!
This is my dad and grandpa's 1965 Ford Falcon Futura! Completely restored
to better than origional condition, inside and out! You will never see a
nicer Ford Falcon. This car is powered by 347ci Stroker motor! Watch him
scare the ducks!
Real Barn Find 1965 Mustang Fastback A/FX Gasser Viral
I put the word viral to gain views,,,,HEAR THE CAR RUN @ 2:40 This x drag
race car was snug for 32 years in the basement of a farm house outside of
Albany. A close friend and track official at Lebanon Valley dragstrip told
me about this car at the end of the 2011 season. So I went to see it. I
bought it instantly. I have been slowly making the car useable since I
bought it. The body and frame of the car have never seen the salt and it
has been a race car since it was new. The rear tubbing and body
work/engineering for the front leaf springs were all done in the 60's. It
saw heavy track time from 1967-77 but has been sitting un-raced since. I
would love to know the actual mileage on this car, i'm sure it would be low
and in increments of 1/4 mile :)
1965 Ford Ranchero 289 V-8 " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
1965 Ford Ranchero 289 V-8. #5H27C185191. 289 V-8 3 speed. This Ranchero
came from Story, Wy. It ended up in Montana before coming to Washington
State in 2013 where I bought it. I'm always looking for '64 and '65
Rancheros ever since I missed one 20 years ago. This is a driver quality
PU. It's good and straight and it looks like a Maaco paint job that was not
cut and buffed. A little wet sanding may improve the look. The interior is
decent (but it's 3 colors). Someone has redone part of the interior but
didn't redo the seats in red but in black. I drove it to Old School Garage
for it's service and safety check. It really did not need much. I knew it
needed new motor mounts and the shift linkage needed attention. That is one
of the good things about driving the 40 + miles to Old School, I really get
a chance to see what needs to be worked on, if anything. This Ranchero
came with a 3 speed on the column but someone installed a floor shifter and
not one of the best ones. Do not shift fast. Joe got the shift linkage
adjusted and it works a lot better. New tie rod end installed. Also the new
motor mounts. Now it really drives well. It has rust on the underside that
has been patched. Make sure you look at the photos and video. When we did
the video we used the Bondo checker and I was impressed about the lack of
rust. You can drive it now, and restore it if you want. 5 chrome wheels
with almost new tires. Cond # 3-.

1965 Ford Falcon Futura
This is my 1965 Ford Falcon. I first saw this car in 1988. I was a
policeman and I stopped the owner for speeding. Turns out he was adjusting
the secondaries on the carburetor. Since he had a good excuse of course he
didn't get a ticket. I fell in love with the car and I never sought again
until 10 years later. It was a bit faded but I knew it was probably the
same car. Now eight years later in 2006 I saw the car on eBay. I wrote and
then called the owners and ask them if they remember contact with the
police about this car. Of course they did and I wanted to see the car as
they had moved away. I ended up high bidder on eBay and won the car. I
bought the car during the height of the collector car days and spent a lot
of money. I then spent another $18,000 getting the condition it is now.
To say that this car is fun and enjoyable is an understatement. Being a
huge fan of the Ford falcon I look at every one that I see. I have never
seen one that is as solid as this car. There has never been any body work
dents rust or anything except for a stripped-down paint job. The paint job
was in $8600 expense. The discounted $8600 price tag came with the
understanding that I would deliver a shell of the car so they could paint

If you're looking for a fun classic that is as unique as it is cool, this
impressive '65 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting for!
When this striking Futura rolled into our showroom, one thing was
immediately apparent. The quality of its restoration is top notch in every
way; and whoever spent the time hammering its solid body back into shape
has either spent most of their adult life in a body shop or restored more
than their fair share of second generation Falcons. From the top of its
smooth roof to the bottom of its cool Turquoise body, this car is much
straighter than when it rolled out of Ford's Lorain, Ohio manufacturing
facility and features a great looking coat of urethane paint which displays
virtually no flaws.
The car's reliable but basic 6-cylinder engine was swapped for a larger 351
Cleveland four valve V8 that looks great covered in a thick coat of
traditional Ford Blue paint. And its clean engine bay was fitted with an
assortment of dress up pieces, which range from gray hood hardware to
polished stainless fuel lines, and then refinished in the same slick
Turquoise urethane as its glossy exterior panels. The 351 gets its air and
fuel from an Offenhauser aluminum intake which props a Holley 4-barrel
carburetor below a chrome topped, satin black dual snorkel air cleaner.
Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor that sends spark
through eight Autolite Pro Fit premium plug wires which snake around finned
aluminum Ford Racing valve covers. And cooling is provided by a Northern
aluminum radiator which is complete with both a polished cap and a polished
Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission
and a traditional Ford nine inch rear end. Steering is provided by a
traditional manual rack which gives the car a unique, vintage feel. And
braking is provided by a combination of manual front discs and manual rear
drums which do an excellent job of providing fade free, drama free stops.
Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a nice set of Halibrand
15 inch Five Spoke wheels which ride on 195/65 Hankook radials up front,
and 215/70 Cordovan Centron radials out back. And overall, the bottom of
this Falcon presents very well with solid floors that display no signs of
rust, a straight frame that shows no indication of damage, and a slew of
road ready parts that all function just as they should.
This cool Falcon's tasteful and comfortable two-tone blue interior is a
classy reminder of the days when style and appeal were the central focus of
automotive design. At the front of the car, rebuilt factory gauges ride
inside a fully restored dash which hangs pristine stainless trim above a
set of modern, chrome trimmed auxiliary gauges and a chrome shifter that's
complete with an awesome piston shift knob. At the sides of the car, great
looking two-tone door panels wrap like-new vinyl around restored, stainless
trimmed armrests, fresh chrome handles for the doors and windows and
correct chrome emblems. And in the middle of the car, completely rebuilt
and recovered two-tone blue bench seats provide the perfect spot for main
street cruise nights. In front of those seats, a correctly restored
steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a chrome turn signal stalk
and a large, column mounted Sunpro tachometer. Below the seats, excellent
looking dark blue carpet rides under color-matched floor mats. And above
the seats a like-new tan headliner leads the eye from chrome A-pillar
covers and a flame embossed rearview mirror to a straight and fade-free
package tray which hangs two speakers over a fully restored trunk.
Solid, well-done early 60s metal like this doesn't come along too often,
and given the attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long
either! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
information on this awesome car!
1965 Falcon Futura Wht
A great "compact" car! Falcon started out in 1960 as fairly bland, but
quickly developed some style. You can see this one has lots of style, a
great, colorful interior and dealer installed air conditioning! Under the
hood is that 200 c.i engine attached to automatic transmission! Nice,
economical, stylish transport.
