Default 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?

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

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.

Here are some interior before and afters, including the wiring that "was". I bought the dash pieces individually and restored them by hand, I was emberassed to take a before pic of these......after they came out looking like this I wish I had.

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....
Russ

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.

An excellent first pass time-slip!

Cool. What's next?
