May 13, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Go big or stay home. The vast majority of Ford Falcon street machines we come across make do with a vintage 302 cubic inch small block as it’s a very easy swap using readily available Mustang parts. More recently we’re seeing other enthusiasts follow the Restomod route by stuffing the hardware and computer controls of a Fox-Body-Era Mustang 5.0L under the creased hood of these Ford compacts.  Then there are a select few like the seller and builder of this 1964 Ford Falcon currently originally listed in April 2021 on Craigslist in Chardon, Ohio who subscribe to the old adage “there is no substitute for cubic inches.” Specifically, this Falcon manages to house a 365 horsepower 460 cubic-inch big-block V8 sending power through a Hurst-Shifted four-speed twisting a stout nine-inch rear end featuring 3:26:1 gears.

As the former owner of a 260 cubic inch V8-powered ’64 Falcon, I cannot begin to imagine how scary fast this example is. I want it. I also love how sanitary this Falcon is despite its “look at me” Rangoon Red paint.  Featuring a brand new interior, the current caretaker admits to “testing the waters” with an asking price of $19,000 or best offer.  While comparing that price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool for a stock two-door sedan reveals the asking price is $6,700 above this guide’s #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $13,300, we’re okay with the premium asked as you likely can not replicate this build for this price.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“64 falcon rust free very straight 460ci 365hp 4 speed 9 inch 326 rear end. New interior runs great scary fast. For sale or trade just testing the waters 19k obo.
