Got my hands on a 64’ Falcon. It’ll be my first build but I’m so stoked! 2022

Obligatory photo share:

Last week I got word of a Falcon Sprint restoration that had gone stale around 5 years ago and the poor thing has just been on life support since.

I started tearing into it on Monday to start making a checklist of “to-do’s” and it’s a litany to say the least.

The bad:

Wiring, complete interior, hoses, belts, gauges, handles, suspension bushings throughout, and assorted rusty hardware are the things that need the most attention that I can recall.

The good:

The body is super clean (no rust) and has a fairly fresh coat of paint, the motor is basically a new small block and the trans is newer as well. I still have to inspect the rear end but all accounts suggest it’s in good shape as well.

I’m prepared for the 2-3x price expectation tax on first builds but the abundant information I’ve come across so far has me confidently motivated.

With that said, can any of you lovely folks point to resources that would be of value in doing such a restoration? I’m guessing wiring diagrams, exploded interior/exterior part diagrams, or any other sources of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to sharing the process!


The smell of the leather seats, the sound of the throttle, and even light from outside—all affect your state of mind. That’s what makes a good car great.
