RESTORED WITH NOS PARTS, ORIGINAL COLOR COMBO, NICE RAVEN BLACK PAINT, CLEAN!
Top-down fun doesn't get much more practical than this 1964 Ford Falcon convertible. Restored several years ago, it remains in great shape to drive and enjoy, and with V8 Mustang DNA running through its veins (or, more accurately, the Mustang has Falcon roots), it's a lot of fun to drive. There's more invested in the restoration than this sticker price shows, and as a result you're getting a fully sorted, reliable hobby car with exactly zero needs.
The 1964 Falcon got a redesign, and it looks particularly handsome in Raven Black, as on this lovely little ragtop (code A Raven Black is the car's original color). The earlier, softer, rounded Falcon got squared-off contours that made it look like its big brother the Galaxie, and the striking trim insert on the sides gives the illusion of greater size. With a paint job that is only a few years old and applied over a very straight, original body, there's little to fault with this convertible, even in black. Gaps are remarkably good, and the whole car fits together in a way that belies its price tag. There's plenty of brightwork, including beautiful chrome bumpers, a relatively intricate grille, and the side trim that remains in excellent condition. During the restoration, any part that needed to be replaced received an NOS part, which makes for a highly accurate restoration. Nice!
That interior is code 65 Red Crush Vinyl, and the bright red upholstery looks spectacular with the shiny black body, and produces a classic contrast that gives the Falcon an upscale look that always attracts attention. The '64 Falcon also received an all-new dashboard design, which included a then-fashionable strip-type speedometer flanked by auxiliary gauges in round pods. The red finish carries into the interior on the doors and lower dash, and the combination is actually quite pleasing, giving the little car a bright, upbeat look. The original AM radio remains in the dash and there's a consolette between the seats that adds some practicality, but that's about it for amenities in the economical Falcon. However, there is a new power convertible top that moves effortlessly and stows neatly under a matching vinyl boot.
The engine is a neat 260 cubic inch V8, which is smooth and torquey, making a fairly robust 164 horsepower. But it's important to remember that a similar engine lived in early Mustangs, and both cars were a pleasure to drive in the 1960s. Finished in correct black engine enamel with bright Ford Blue valve covers and air cleaner, it's got a highly detailed stock look, and the overall effect is that someone was sweating the details when this one went back together. The engine and 2-speed automatic transmission were actually rebuilt just a few years ago, and it runs well, moving the little car with aplomb and pulling down surprisingly decent fuel mileage as well, even with 3.25 gears out back. The chassis is basically all original and in good shape, with power steering and drum brakes that work remarkably well given the Falcon's light weight. It rides on a set of matching steel wheels with correct wire wheel covers and a new set of 195/75/14 radials that look period-appropriate in the Falcon's wheel wells.
