1965 Ford Falcon images 302 CID V8 4 Speed Automatic
The Ford Falcon was a very successful model for the Ford Motor Company, although introduction of the sporty Mustang in late ’64, on the same compact frame, are a major reason for a decline in sales of the more traditional Falcon. Many of the mechanical parts for the Mustang will fit into the Falcon without any modification. There was a “Sprint”package available for the ’64 model year which would put the 260 cu in V8 under the hood, although later in the year a 289 became the power option. The Sprint package also included an upgraded suspension for improved handling and a louder exhaust sound for aesthetics. Front seat belts were included, but there was also a full range of models and a large number of creature comfort goodies on the table.
