My 64 Falcon with aTri Power inline 6

Have had this one since 91 , drove it for 4 years then let it sit for too many years while life went on. fast forwad to 2008 I had some extra money and started working on it. so far new engine, entire brake and fuel system replaced including drums ,lines, tank etc. complete suspention and steering rebuild including steering box . new full floor pans and toe boards, recovered seats , new carpet and dash restoration. now time to start on the body work. I am driving it now and then when the urge hits and have logged 3,000 trouble free miles since fall of 08.

The weather here was perfect for cruising sunday, while cruising the back roads I got the crazy Idea to set my cell phone on the side of the road and get a video of the Inline six rolling by at full throttle. I have had several compliments on the sound of the little six but I have only heard it from the driver seat untill this vid. I made a full throttle run through 1st and 2nd gear to around 70 mph in this vid. I am still tweaking this combo and finding a few HP here and there.

You're right it does sound good. Love your carburetor setup, my favorite thing about those Ford sixes is you can do an oil change without going under the car!

Thanks for the replies, Larry you are right .... no getting under the car to change the oil on this one. Here is a pic of the dash right after I put it back together.
