1964 Ford Falcon

This 1964 Falcon came to us in basic stock form and it was fairly clean. However, as you can see in the pics below it did have some rust issues. They didn't last for long, patch panels were soon made. The Falcon will have a Ford Motorsport 521 installed (The biggest crate engine ford sells currently) backed by a ford C6 trans. The firewall had to be moved back quite a ways to accomidate the big ford. The trans. tunnel also had to be widened due to the larger c6. The ugly stock shock towers were eliminated and a new crossmember from Hedits with a much cleaner coil over setup was installed, after the crossmember was notched for the oil pan. The rear suspension has also been updated with Hedits components, which also had to be modified. Rear tubs were made out of heavy gauge steel for saftey and weight to hold this big boy down. Hopefully allowing the car to put down the power of the 521. There will be large disk brakes all around. capped off by American racing torque thrust D's. The customer wants the car to appear basically stock from the outside but have the best inside. Updates will be posted as the car moves along. Click on a picture to see it in full size.

(I dont have any early before pics)

The customer really wants to keep the original look of the falcon interior. So, the factory insturment cluster has been modified to accept modern gauges.

Here is a nice Teaser shot for you!! This is the final fit for the front end. The falcon should be in paint next week! And I'll have pictures up as soon as it's in color so stay tuned... The bumper has been shaved, no more bumper bolts sticking out. All of the chrome has been done in nickel for a very clean classy look. This is probably the only falcon in the state with this monster 521 under the hood and the amazing part, no hood scoop needed. More pics next week.

The falcon was just painted yesterday! and as promised here are some pictures. The conditions of the booth don't allow for amazing pictures. These shots certainly don't do the color justice, it is truly a beautiful looking color. Next up, the side molding "coves" will be painted in gunmetal gray to match the center of the torque thrust D's. The gray should tie everything together nicely the blue needs to be broken up a bit. More pics to come as it moves forward!
falcon with trim side view
Alright, here it is! Everything is really flowing together now. The gray ties in great with the wheel centers and the nickel plated trim makes the gray to blue transition smooth.
I think it looks great.
