1965 Ford Falcon Sedan Delivery
Gary McKay's unusual 1965 Falcon is a bit of everything: hot rod, custom, spartan, Cobra and just plain cool.

1965 Shelby GT350-R Tribute "B Production, SCCA Competition Shelby"
Imagine yourself flying through hairpin turns, shifting gears and working your way to the front, between a Camaro and Trans Am! White knuckle grip on the wheel as you work through the gears! SCCA Racing at its best is what inspired this 1965 Mustang Shelby R Tribute! Everything on this car is built with Trans Am racing history and Carroll Shelby's 1965 GT 350 in mind. This car takes it a step further with about fifty more horsepower. The engine is a 306 (302 bored .030 over) Mexican Block with 9.6 to 1 compression which runs on mid grade gasoline. Engine upgrades include a FRPP Z-303 hydraulic roller cam and tie bar hydraulic roller lifters. Edelbrock Performer RPM cylinder heads upgraded with screw in rocker studs, guide plates, .550 lift hydraulic roller springs, and Comp Cams roller rockers. The original S7MS Shelby intake, which has been ported to match the heads, is topped off with a LeMans Holley Carburetor pushing 600 CFM. The transmission is a 4 speed manual, 2.78 Top Loader known as the wide ratio, with a Hurst Competition Plus shifter with a Ford shift handle. The differential housing is an original 1965 Mustang K Code with a 3.50 ratio and a Detroit Locker rear end. The front suspension has been lowered 1" to lower the center of gravity and help in the turns. Also, helping the steering, is a 1" front sway bar and a 3/4" rear sway bar, Shelby pitman and idler arms, and Mustang GT springs and gas shocks. The Exhaust duty is handled by 4 tube headers with 2 ?" side exit Exhaust. Other new parts include a 3 core radiator, Petronic ignition, R model front apron, Shelby Grill, Shelby fiberglass hood, fenders, R model roll bar, fiberglass package shelf, 20 gallon gas tank with Cobra quick fill cap, Shelby deck lid pan, blanked out gas cap, blanked out C-Pillar vents inside and out, deleted headliner, deleted dash with Shelby R model gauge panel and new gauges, deleted glove box door, deleted inner door panels with lightweight sheet metal replacements, deleted rear bumper, Shelby Moto Lita steering wheel, Ray Brown quick release lap belts with shoulder harnesses, original radio delete plate, R model Lexan rear window with air gap, 15x7 Torque Thrust wheels with BFG G Force radial tires, driveshaft safety loop, rear axle limiting cables, and original Hi Po rear brake line hose and bracket. This Mustang is painted Wimbledon White with correctly spaced and tapered Guardsman Blue stripes and Guardsman Blue side stripes. This car has been done correctly in every aspect and would make a Mustang lover, or a Trans Am racing lover very proud to own. Do you want to own a piece of history? Please, call 800-231-3616 for additional details.

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!

This is the first Test Session on Melissa DeVito's '65 Ford Falcon. We were not disappointed with the results, although we discovered a bug in the carburator. Our best time was 8.42@82mph. We will return to the strip next weekend hopefully with the bugs worked out and Mel in the driver seat.

Rankin Ford's "The Wild Child" 427 SOHC Falcon
I saw this car at the 2010 East Coast Camaro Club's car show at DeSantis Chevy in Brockton, MA. I have no idea if it is the real deal, but it appears so, other than the missing original dash, different hood and induction, or the exact paint job. It is a Ford Falcon drag car with a rare 427 cu. in. SOHC FE engine, done by Rankin Ford in London, ON Canada. Current owner is from MA. Pump up the volume and enjoy.
64 Falcon Dyno @ SVS R&D, Sacramento CA, 400 HP
May 31, 2011 - the experts at Sacramento Volvo Service (SVS) Research and Development (R&D) testing my 64 Ford Falcon. This run was 305 rear wheel horsepower (rwhp) with 280 ft-lbs of torque @ wheel, at 6,200 rpm. Engine is a DSS Racing 306 (302) with Trick Flow Twisted Wedge heads backed by a Ford AOD 4 speed automatic overdrive transmission, and a Ford 9 inch rear end w/ 4.11 gears and a spool. I have heard you lose 20-25% of your power through the auto trans and differential, so that means the engine horsepower is about 380-400 horsepower at the flywheel. Car Craft magazine tested a Mustang with an AOD and 9 inch rear end and found a 33% loss, so I might be losing more than I think. Great place to check your fuel test your car. These guys live and breathe performance. The car weighs about 2,900 pounds. Should run 12.3 in the 1/4 mile, but I can't get traction. Contact me if you are selling 25 or 26x9x15 drag slicks!
