All summer, I make it a point to hit the local cruise nights, and while there are plenty of regulars on hand week to week, a few cars make just one appearance and vanish. Way back in May, the car you see above, a surf-themed 1964 Ford Falcon Squire dubbed "Tiki Taxi", showed up. Immediately smitten, I snapped a bunch of photos, all of which are now gallerized here. Good thing, because the car never materialized again.

Fast-forward to today. Turns out, the "Tiki Taxi" is for sale. The coolest '64 Falcon station wagon in the known universe has a 289, three on the floor, and a JVC cassette deck to play your Martin Denny tapes during the ride to Trader Vic's. Current high bid (as of post time) is $6,600, and you still have two days to get in on the action. Check out the photo gallery to see just how beautifully turned out this wagon really is. You can also download full-resolution shots here.

      That would make a great family beach car.

      That tape player is not original, we had a 62 and 66 ford falcon's, they had AM radio, and cassettes weren't available back then, that was even before 8 track.

      What makes this otherwise NORMAL looking Falcon Squire Stationwagon so different from at least 100 or more, surviving other 1964 - 1965 Ford Falcon wagons with fake woodgrained side panels of it's type... this isn't the only one in the world. Three in the floor? Looks like it was converted from a column shift Cruiseomatic . wish that I could get hype like this for my Ebay listings!

      I had a '64 Falcon Sprint, the two door model with a 4 speed transmission, which I purchased used in '65. It had the standard 260 V8 which I believe was the only V8 offered for the Falcon. I thought the 289 V8 did not arrive until Mustang came out --- as far as I remember. The Sprint was a great little car, fast, nimble, and good on gas mileage. It ws my first car with bucket seats and a 4 speed! It would jump the 289 Mustang off the line for about 3/16 of a mile but the Mustang would just edge it out over a quarter mile. The Sprint would top out at about 115 MPH and the Mustang edged it out there, too. A great car that is actually still around today with it's 8th or 9th owner.

      Why is there a 3 foot tall man behind the car?

      This used to be considered a nerd's car back in the day. Has this changed?

      Did you know it was the Falcon and its frame/chassis (and of course its 289 ci engine) ...that emerged as the 64 1/2 Mustang...the car you still see on the road after 48 years??? Don't knock the Falcon....it has good genes.

      I love Falcon Squires. Many of them came with bucket seats and a console, making them seem more contemporary than they are. I'm glad to see this one wasn't scrapped, but aesthetically I like original ones more. I'm sure this would be a fun car to cruise in, though.

        My Dad had a '63 Falcon Squire with the bucket seat option. Unfortunately it was traded for a '65 wagon without the Squire package or the buckets. In '67 he switched to Chevy Bel Air wagons for the next few years. I stayed a Ford guy.
