Re: quick question

i am in year 11 of the "minor engine overhaul" on my 65 falcon.
i am currently $12,000 into it. the only thing i have not redone is the rear end, and that should be rebuilt by the time the engine is ready to go in it in september.

Re: quick question

kinda sorta. only 4 k code falcons were ever made, and they were all sold in canada.
mine was made in mahawa nj , and sold in florida. it is a 289 C-4 car though. i "built" a 89 302 HO with 73 53 cc heads and 194 intake and 170 exhaust valves. it also has big spark plugs so it will look like a 289 when you open the hood.
also have a E303B cam ford motorsport roller lifters, and 1,7 roller rockers. edelbrock performer intake and 650 carb. and factory hi po exhaust manifolds.
396 HP at 5200 RPM.

quick question

My dad had a Falcon. I think it ended upside down in a California almond orchard. :-)

Re: quick question

Oh?
I guess you want to " store" it next to the 64 wagon in my shop?

Re: quick question

You could send them both to me. I have room in my shop and no salt on roads to rust them out etc. Simple

Re: quick question

We dont roll those when the salt is out. They stay put away.
