64' Ford Falcon

She's finally finished 16 months after picking her up as a Chevy powered roller with lots of issues. I decided to strip this car down to the bare Art Morrison Chassis and glad I did, found lots of issues along the way. Built a 521 pump gas engine for it and hope to hit the track in 2 weeks.

Awesome! That's one sweet Falcon (My favorite year too)

That looks like it will be a good race car. What heads?

1967 Mustang coupe, Mustang II front suspension. W/RV camed, D3VE headed, 460/C6 (soon to be 557 CID w/ported police interceptor heads) out of the box BBC headers(with homemade steel adapters)

Shocktower removal enthusiast.

The race is not over till the Fat Block Ford Sings!

Looks great, I like how the trim and molding is still on it, it looks like a 64 Falcon.

I get to feel the torque of a BBF 4 times an 1/8 and 5 times a 1/4.

Glad to see you blessed it with a Ford engine instead of that Chevy crap.

Thanks guys, I'm hoping this is going to be a good race car for me. I built the engine to run on pump gas. It has the Scat 521 rotating assembly with the 4340 crank, H-beams with ARP 2000's and Mahle dish pistons.....just under 10:1 compression with the Trick Flow Streets for heads. Cam is a comp .750 roller from Lem. Holley 950HP on top of a Victor 4150 intake. JW Bell and Flexplate to a Hughes Powerglide and Converter. Braced 9" Ladder Bar, 4:29 pro gear, 33 spline Moser axles. Hoping to run bottom 10's and slow it down on occasion to run some 10.60 D/Gaas. I let my license go after selling the 56' Ford and I don't want to wear all the heavier safety gear during the summer, so if it dips into the 9's I have the throttle stop to slow it down. I'll post more pics, maybe some before and afters.

Man you build some beautiful cars! That thing looks bad azz with the "warp nacelle" on the hood. Wish I'd had the money for your 56....

P.S.
I think you're gonna need that throttle stop

Made my first trip to the track today. After "massaging" the tubs a little to get the bigger tires to fit it ran a 10.21 @ 130 on the first full pass. The car hooked solid while everyone else was spinning, looking forward to the all Ford race tomorrow.
