This 1964 Ford Falcon 2 door wagon found on Ebay was recently driven from LA to Saint Louis on route 66. A nice voyage for a survivor that had spent the previous 10 years in a garage before being resurrected through an estate sale. With a 200 straight six and three-on-the tree manual transmission the economical Falcon averaged 28 mpg. The trip wasn’t without incident as the adventurous couple who made the trip had some overheating issues, but these have been resolved by adding a new radiator, water pump and thermostatically controlled radiator fan.
A cool feature on this Falcon is the original longhorn cattle motif seat fabric that looks to be in fantastic shape. The chrome roof rack and dogdish hubcaps are also a nice touch.
