Who ever told you they were still being produced doesn't know a thing about the subject! The power steering center link for the 65 Falcon/Comet equipped with the factory V8, was only produced one year. They are not being reproduced and they are extremely difficult to find. I sent mine to a guy in Texas for a control valve rebuild and he didn't repackage it properly. All I got back from him was an empty box. It took several months with both of us searching to locate another one. He also under-insured the part and lost $$$ on the job! This is a very rare part. The six cylinder unit isn't as robust as the V8 unit either, so if you recommend using it instead you are asking for trouble. The 65 Mustang and the 64 Falcon units have a different geometry and will not work on a 65 Falcon.

'65 Futura Convertible, 331 stroker, MSD Ignition, Hooker exhaust, C4 W/Racing clutch packs & TransGo Shift kit, Aluminum 2 Row cooling system. RRS Strut front suspension w/11.5" disc brakes.

Re: 1964 Falcon Power Steering Options

BlueBird is right- the V8 power steering centerlink is not reproduced, only the manual version. And the Mustang link is too long.
