Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

man..please dont destroy an origenal sprint...its not a matter of worth its a matter of they just arent making them anymore. if you want to put in a big engine or splashy paint find a 2 dr. ht. that came with a six, no real value..and just fix it up...thanks..

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

One will be worth more than the other to the right buyer.

A 260 4spd Sprint would definately be a nice car to own.

On average I think your 64 Sprint will get the same money either way, but the Original car will sell Faster in my opinion.

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

That would depend on a hundreds of other items too, not just the engine & paint.

Much more info needed to make any sort of guess on that one.

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

The more money you put into it the LESS you will get out.

The more original the car the higher the price that someone will pay quickly for. Meaning, you will likely sell an original car at $6,000 far far faster than a modified car for $6,000 regardless of the modifications.

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

its my dads car. he bought it as a roller. its solid but undergoing a complete resto. its a california car and hasnt been on the road since 1989.
it was I think twilight blue I think they call it(like a sky blue), 260, 4spd, hardtop, bucket seats, console

he wants to put granada discs and crager s/s's on it anyway

Im thinking if he doesnt do it 100% original, he should do it so its more pleasurable to drive, but I dont know

he seems to think its worth big money done 100% correct and not worth as much with upgrades

it sounds to me like its only worth $6k-12k depending on how nicely its done?

Personally I think it depends on how good of shape it's in as an original car. If it has alot of problems I would just go for a restomod. And yes, restomods done right do have good value. Btw, I'm not a "purest" as to every nut and bolt has to be just right. This is just me and my opinion.

Unless you have a '69 Mach I with a $25k paint job and you're asking $111k for it.

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

How long is he planning on owning it? Is the plan to build it and then resale in the next couple of years? Basically, what is his end goal for the Sprint?

If this is the car you dad always wanted and he plans on keeping it 10 years or more then he should do what ever mods he wants for his enjoyment. If he is paying the $$, in this case, let him pay for what he wants.

Even in the short turn, most bolt-ons can be undone at any time. Wheels will certainly not affect its value unless they are distasteful to the general public and besides, they are probably the easiest mod to undue. Disc brakes can be undone but MII front suspensions are more permanent. Even the 347/5 speed could fit in this category, BUT you would still need to factor in its resale value should you eventually want to reinstall the 260 and 4 speed. Flashy paint and modified body parts will be the most expensive thing to undo so I would certainly steer him away from that as acceptance is certainly a matter of taste to a potential buyer.

For quick resale, keep it stock (except for maybe wheels.) For short term personal enjoyment, do bolt-on tasteful mods that can be undone. For maximum enjoyment with no strings attached, let him do what he wants.

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

the car is solid, but it is BARE! its not like he has the stock stuff and hes modding, its like a bare canvas starting from square one.

he wont be cutting anything, that is for sure. it might be easier to find a 302 or 347 vs. a 260. all thats there is a clutch pedal and a rod that goes under the hood, so it may even be cheaper and easier to go 5spd. although its a stock 8" rear with 3.25 gears, so he doesnt even need the OD, I was thinking more along the lines that the 5spd is a smoother operating piece

flashy paint was probably a bad reference, the car is being stripped to bare metal and getting a complete repaint, should it go original light blue, or is red or yellow ok?

I dont think he has any ideas what his goals are long term at this point

Re: 64 falcon sprint- value

I'm with dennis111 on this project. If he's building it for himself and for the long haul I say do it how he wants.

I know that when I cut up my car (mini tub and shock tower braces) it might have lowered the resale but it's MY car and I have no plans on selling it so I really don't care what some purest or collector might think about these mods.

If someone at some point ever wanted to, most things can be put back to stock, but in the mean time enjoy it however you decide you want it to look and drive. I personally don't like non-stock colors and crazy wheels but that's just me.

Have fun!

John
