    This is my 1965 Falcon Sprint. 1 of 2806 Hardtops produced in 1965. It is a 289 4spd. My dad and originally restored this car back in 1982. My dad had it repainted in 1986 after a minor accident. The car has won numerous trophies at car shows including a third place at The Falcon Club of America National meet in Atlanta Ga.1988.

    Fuggin' sweet, always wanted one, only problem I ever had with those was the steering and that whole setup.

    I drove a brown one that was beat on pretty hard when I was younger, but I never got the option to buy it otherwise I would have it sitting back home in the states probably restored by now.

    Thanks guys, yea the steering on these are very slow, and this one is manual steering which makes it worse.

    The only problem with driving this is the seats hurt your ass after a while. Very uncomfortable.
