Nice job! Yeah, whod'a thunk those "fancy Falcons" would be worth anything?! Yours reminds me of a '65 I had back in the early 70s - same color and about the same codition (pre-restored). Only mine had the hi-po 289 in it - altho' most of the ponies were dead...and it had a T10 4spd. Bought it at the dealership where I worked for $50 & the boss told me "get it to h*** off the lot TODAY!" On the way home, a couple of - well - they weren't Marlboros - fell out from under the dashboard - Wow - no brakes, no muffler and now some wacky t'backy in the car! Longest drive home ever!

Restored the driveline & that thing ripped. But kids & life in general forced its sale. The memories remain.

They are fun cars! Hope you're enjoying it.
