Description of 1965 Ford Falcon

If you haven't been paying attention, Ford Falcons have gotten red hot lately and this cool 1965 Ford Falcon Futura station wagon gets a lot of things right. First there's the cool retro wagon look, which is red hot right now. Then there's the potent 302 under the hood and the awesome stance. All told, this is a cool little hauler that's more than just pretty, it's pretty fast!The Falcon has a no-nonsense look that's actually quite stylish. The upright wagon takes on a sleek look with the lowered stance and big rolling stock, resulting in a little hauler that gets a lot of attention. This one hails from the warm southern US, so that means no rust bubbles hidden in the dog legs and doors that open and close with precision. Falcons are usually great hobby cars because they were not as sporty as the Mustangs and usually lived easier lives, and this V8 wagon (it was originally powered by a C-code 289) fits that mold. The code F Arcadian Blue paint was redone about 10 years ago and shows some age, but a professional buff could really wake it up and make this Falcon sparkle. Even as it sits, it's a nice driver that will get attention simply because it's so unusual. The trim along the flanks is in excellent shape with none of the big dings you'd expect and the usual Ford jet-inspired taillights are bright and crisply rendered, making for a very cool package that will stand out everywhere you go.The interior is Falcon simple, with blue vinyl bench seats front and rear, all wearing proper looking pleated seat covers. It's actually surprisingly stylish for an affordable car, with nice carpets and ornate two-tone door panels that really dress things up. Look closely and you'll see a custom steering wheel and aftermarket A/C that blows ice cold, making this an ideal choice for road trips. The factory gauges are bright and crisp, covering the basics, but what more do you need? The factory AM radio remains in the dash, but there's a neatly installed AM/FM/CD stereo head unit underneath that blends in nicely with the A/C vents, so someone really cared about making it look right. In fact, that's one thing that you can see throughout this car: evidence that someone really loved it and wanted it right. Even the cargo bay wears nice blue carpets and the rear window rolls down for additional ventilation or to haul longer cargo.It was originally a C-code 289 but today it carries a burly 302 cubic inch V8 that's a neat fit thanks to full interchangeability of the blocks. With a serious cam inside, a big Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and a few 5.0 tricks, it makes a lot more horsepower than the original C-code powerplant and drives extremely well. Nobody expects the snarl from the twin tailpipes, but this car drives beautifully on the open road. There's a big aluminum radiator up front, plus power steering and front disc brakes, so it's really a no-compromises cruiser. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission seems to make sense in a station wagon, and with 2.80 gears out back, it's just fantastic on the highway. It's shockingly clean underneath and the stance is fantastic thanks to 17-inch Torque Thrust-style wheels and 215/45/17 front and 225/45/17 rear performance radials.We'll admit it, we love this car. If you're into wagons, Falcons, or low-key horsepower, this neat little Ford gets everything right. Call today!
