1964 Ford Falcon. 2 door hardtop. Has a V8 in it. Automatic.

Customer Question
1964 Ford Falcon....

1964 Ford Falcon. 2 door hardtop. Has a V8 in it. Automatic. Badges say 260. Someone else did the work on it. VIN says it came with a V8 260. How can I tell if it's the original engine? Or even if it's an actual 260?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Unknown miles. Automatic. I've owned it since about 2010.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Falcon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Someone else did the work. I just get to drive it.

I am reading that Starting in January 1964, tag located under electric heat bulb indicator shows various engine identification data. See illustration. It looks like this,

Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
