1964 Falcon Sprint - The Sporting Cruiser.
Sometimes a car means a lot more than the sum of metal, plastic and rubber it is made up from... Dan Bowden talks about what his old favourite 1964 Falcon Sprint means to him. Video is dedicated to our family friend and famous Falcon racer, Frank Gardner. Historic images and video from the Ford Racing Archives.





1964 Ford Falcon Sprint called Frieda
5.0 HO SBF at 306 CI ProComp Aluminum heads (190 CC intake & 60 CC chambers) Comp Cam (281H-R10 Grind) with 1.6 aluminum Roller Rockers Crosswinds AirGap dual plane intake KB pistons, Eagle rods 9.7:1 compression Quick Fuel 650 DP Hedman Shortys feeding 2 1/2" Exhaust to MagnaFlows with dumps F1 Racing Stage2 10.5" Clutch, Pressure Plate & Billet Flywheel T-5 WC transmission 3.25:1 Trac-Lok rearend. Per Comp Cams, the motor makes 431 BHP at 5800 RPM & 408 FP torque at the flywheel on the way up. So they say. After all, they are selling cams. My compliments to Modern Driveline. I use their recommended accessories to install and operate the T5. Including converting to a cable actuated clutch system. Their Hurst Shifter in the S10 tailshaft provides flawless operation and locates the shifter in the ideal location. This combo just feels right. Chassis: New springs front and back, KYB shocks and added lower front cross member support brace and a TCP Monte Carlo bar and shock tower bracing system. All suspension bushings and links are new and are poly. Upgraded front anti-sway bar to 1 1/8" (original was 5/8") and added rear anti-sway bar (7/8"). This anti-sway bar combo is likely to create oversteer and I anticipate testing a smaller rear bar (5/8"). Weight is under 2800 lbs. Wheels: BFG Radial TA 14" 215R70 RWL. On 1966 Ford Dealer Option Styled Steel Wheels (6" wide). A very good fit under this car. Body: Wimbledon White and not show quality. Actually down right crappy. Planning to repaint same boring color with a little pearl added to highlight body sculpture. Engine bay will be body color. Interior: Red Crushed "Hyde of the elusive Nauga." A red Nauga. Good condition with bucket seats. Original tach still works. Will disassemble the car after about 1,000 miles of shakedown on the mechanicals and do body work and repaint.
