That thing is ghastly.
Throw a cammer in it..... And a straight axle!...
Beauty is only skin deep, butt ugly goes clear to the bone
It sure was different.
Looks like a Galaxie mated with a 64 Barracuda,I would drive one just to make people ask what is it. Harvey
Looks like a Marlin to me...
But look at all the tie-down racks.
I want one!
BuckeyeBuick tells us beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes clear to the bone. Do I need to remind folks that a Falcon is really a Mustang in it's bones?
Reminds me of a bigger version the Opel Kadett.....
More of a Grimlin vibe...
never thought of the falcon as being boring. At least it doesn't look like that thing
It's also a hatchback. And there's a California license plate.
Americans got it right this time (see below)
sorry but the Italian car is the apprentices at Ghia having a bad day
It's interesting. And the styling might be fixable.
A Falcon Ranchero might make a good-looking hatchbook. I might try, if I get to my aerodynamic '61 Ranchero project.
I see the 64-5 square-body Falcon resemblance.
Obviously the engine should go in back.
Ghia did lots of weird stuff in the '60s. Detroit would occasionally reach out to them for different 'takes' on current production cars, but sometimes Ghia would go out on their own to generate publicity for the shop. Their best designs were usually collaborations between them and whoever contracted them, their fully in-house designs not so much IMO.
Haha, I thought the emblem said "Clam" not Clan. Not an improvement!
The back looks like a snowboarding slope with railings.
Because it is a 64 Falcon, customised by Dean Jeffries in the early 60s and known as the Python. One of the best looking cars ever in my opinion.
Ford did that with a boss 429... Look it up...
Holman -Moddy campaigned a fastback Falcon back in the early 60's. HRP
I was called the Challenger. HRP
The second picture is appealing. Those were sectioned.
I like it, but maybe the face should've been left stock or done differently. It reminds me of a Celica.
Aren't Celicas off topic?
Separate names with a comma.
