Pretty Bird! 1964 Falcon Wagon


Commenter Muthalovin tipped us to this stylish ’65 Falcon wagon for sale out in Pflugerville, Texas. It sports a 170c.i. straight six and a Ford-O-Matic slushbox, which should be fine for around-town cruising and car show duty, but you’d best avoid any speed competitions (or uphill onramps).

Oddly enough, the world of classic wagon lovers is small enough that I immediately remembered it from my flickr favorites. Instead of the downsized Craigslist pictures, we’re  running some from the seller’s photostream.

The $11k asking price seems high, but if it’s as clean inside and under the hood as it is on the outside, it might not be too far off the mark. Besides, a powertrain swap on one of these is pretty straightforward, but paint, body and interior work get expensive and painful quickly. Your call.

    It looks to be in great condition! I sometimes wonder if it would be better to just leave the anemic 6 in cars like this. So many examples are upgraded with bigger engines — or prostituted GM engines — that a relatively unmolested I-6 may garner some attention some day.

      There's also a whole aftermarket dedicated to the Ford I-6s. It's not hard to get serious power out of a 200, 250 or 300; the 170 might be a little tough. They kept that same engine architecture alive in Australia long after they killed it here.

        True, and there may be some resources in Oz for the smaller Sixer. I'm just thinking that leaving the original six in place, with some performance mods to get a few more horses out of it, may in the long run be a better option. Dropping in a 351 is an easy thing to do and a quick way to get some performance out of these cars, but that's done so much that unmolested sixes are probably becoming hard to come by.

          Yeah, but molestation by forced induction is so fun!

            So true! Not all molestation is bad.

    $11K would work for me if there were 8 cylinders under the hood. For a straight six, it seems a little high. Nice looking wagon though.

    I love this car. It really puts into perspective how hawt a Falcon Wagon can be. My dad sold my moms '63 for $300 several years ago. A lot of work and some paint, and man!

    In recent years I've really come to love the Falcon body style. The wagon is just the icing on the cake. Personally, I'm totally cool with the I-6. As a domestic engine there's still plenty that can be done with it.
