    It is far from show, just going to be a fun cruiser.

    Going to rebuild the front end and A/C and just have fun with it.

    It was repainted in the 80's to black, wished they had kept the Wimbledon White.

    I was/am a big fan of the '63-'64 Falcon Sprints. Wanted one bad in my early years. Ended up with a '66 Mustang GT.

    I just finished going through all the paperwork. It was painted in 1983 to the current black by the original owner. It was then given to his son who owned it until last year, he passed and his kids sold it to the lady purchased it from. They kept all the service receipts.

    Well, the Ute needs to go. I have two 64 Old's coming early next year. One coupe one convertible, both 442's.

    Noooo. 64 was a great year and it seems like it was a well optioned car/truck/Ute/thingy. That’s sad to hear it must go. Keep it as a parts runner?

    I would, but I purchased it for my father and he just can't work the clutch, he is 87. I am really, too tall for it, just not comfortable. The Old's are a very good and close friend of both my father and I, who has lewy body dementia and his wife wants them to go us. It was him that sold me a ratty of 65 Corvair Corsa to restore. He helped me and my father build more than a few engines and transmissions. It is hard to witness a man that was as smart as he was to deminish as much as he has.

    The coupe I found for him back in 1989, I drove it for a few weeks before he could get down to pick it up.
