Greg B BS: 1964 Ford Falcon Rally Sport - Original (17) RE: BS: 1964 Ford Falcon Rally Sport - Original 19 Feb 12

Hey Bobert, when did the 289 first appear? I thought the V8 Falcons were all 260s.

Let's not let the opportunity pass to remind folks that they took the plebian little Falcon chassis and stuck a sexier coupe body on it and called it the "Mustang" and the rest is history!

(And that like 90% of the early Mustangs had the boring little Falcon 200 cubic inch straight six in them, and were sold to "career girls." Then guys in my high-school classes took the survivors in 'long about '76 and converted them into the V8 289 option and had fun fun fun.)
