1965 Ford Falcon Futura project

Hi Guys! I'm new to the forum so please forgive me if I do anything wrong as I have to read something 5 times before I understand it. lol.. Unfortunately I have to sell my project that I've owned for a couple of years now. I'll be honest, I have no idea what to ask for it. I'm not looking to make any money on it. Just trying trying come close on breaking even on what parts alone were( I know, it will never happen!) I have tons of pictures and information so please fill free to ask. The car is posted on eBay as well. Has all the info on there.

1965 Ford Falcon Futura pro touring project car that I was building. Original 6 cylinder car. The car sat in a barn for 20+ years in Santa Cruz, Ca. It does not have any interior due to the rats. All the trim is there and in great shape. The body itself is in really good shape for its age but does have surface rust and some rot in the trunk but nothing thats to crazy. The bottom of the dash is rusted out but it will come with a complete new(used out of another falcon) dash with zero rust. There was a patch job on the driver side floor pan that needs to be re-done correctly. Rust in the trunk area as shown in photo. I started to do a mini tub so that will need to be finished as well.
TCI front and rear suspension. Upgraded ridetech coilover shocks, front and rear sway bars. power rack n pinion, 4 link rear, upgraded 6 piston wilwood brakes with 13 inch 2 piece rotors, all new brake lines for the front, 8.8 4.10 posi rear end with disc, ididit
tilt steering column with a newer steering wheel and steering joints, steel manual transmission tunnel that needs to be welded in if 5 speed is wanted, US Mags 17x7 up front with 18x10 in the rear with brand new nitto invo tires, brand new radiator with electric fan,new gas tank with sending unit, all new body bolts and screws. All the glass is there and in great shape.

Sorry to hear you have to sell your Falcon. It looks like you have a great start on a really bad ass car. Good luck on selling it. Roger

Re: 1965 Ford Falcon Futura project

Thanks Roger I greatly appreciate it! Yeah this was definitely a project that I had no intentions on selling. Put a lot of time and money but here in the bay area of California, unless your a millionaire you cant live. So unfortunately I have to let her go. But I will own one before I die. Its been a dream car of mine for so long.

Re: 1965 Ford Falcon Futura project

Sweet setup. This is almost exactly what I'm looking to do to my '65 Falcon. I'll keep an eye on this thread. I can't help but be interested. How much you got into it if you don't mind me asking? Just so I have a ballpark number.
