1964 FORD FALCON STATION WAGON - 1 OF 17,779
Ford Falcon continues to attract buyers. This year, Falcon offered 4 wagons. There was the 2 door, the 4 door such as this, the Deluxe 4 door, and the high-end Squire 4 door. This particular wagon would have cost you in the neighborhood of $2,360. Engines for the Falcon wagons this year would be two L-head sixes, at 200 cid, and 223 with 116 and 138 horses respectively, plus a V8 260 cid, 260 hp. These were the only engines available for the Falcon wagon. Other Falcon models had a broader choice. This wagon seems roomy with ample cargo area and seating. Familiar Ford round tail lights grace the rear end. Notice the plain interior with the dash instruments easily seen by the driver and the 60's type vinyl seats. The 1964 Ford products have been called the prettiest Fords of the 1960's and this Ford Falcon fits well into that catagory. Thanks for viewing this 1964 Ford Falcon station wagon.

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 overflow tank.
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!
