Maybe the seller put the zero from his feedback rating in the price.

I have model A's. A friend of mine likes comets, & falcons. Aside form the ridiculous asking price from a new ebayer, Looks like we have the best of both worlds

What makes it even goofier, is that it's not even a '64 Falcon. '64's were restyled with new sheet metal. Looks like a '63 grill. The price is outrageous too. Another clueless soul.

The description also says it's a right hand drive car ? Not a car guy trying to sell this one.

My late father in law had a 144 engine in his Falcon and a 2 speed auto slush box tranny. I remember a few hills where we had to get out and push while the driver kept the throttle on the floor to get up them. It was the most gutless car I have ever driven but it cruised all day at 70mph.

I can believe that about the haulers but I am pretty sure they did come with autos as an option from the get go in 1960. The 170 didn't come out till 61. Been looking for a 60-63 Falcon for a while and about 8/10 that I've seen have been autos.. many with 144s. Wonder why autos were so popular if they were so gutless?
