My favorite year of Falcon is got to be 1964, same my favorite year of Galaxie.
My dad is all about classic Ford, but his tastes run to the eclectic. At the garage, we have a 64 Galaxie 500 tagtop (64k on the odometer, 390V8/Cruise-o-matic), next to that is the 79 Thunderbird streetrod (429CJ/C6). Outside is a 78 Thunderbird T-top and in front of that is a 78 Mustang II hatchback.
I love the 64 galaxie. Great car! Pretty rare to find a 64 drop top with so few miles. I bet the t-bird moves out with a 429!
It's funny, I actually fell in love with the early galaxies '61-'64 originally but needed something I could daily drive. So for mpg purposes I started looking at Fairlanes, Falcons and Comets. To my surprise the car actually does extremely well as a DD. Aside from lack of power it stops well, handles well and rides pretty nice. Although I do miss FM radio haha!
