Here's a wrench to this old tale. My nephew called last night. He just bought a 64 Caliente conv. with a K code. He is the 3rd owner.
66 Cyclone GT; 245/60R15's on 15x8's and 215/70R15's on 15x7 Magnum's.
There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

It probably is a K-code but a Merc 64 K-code was a D-code Ford Stang engine from what I have read in multiple forums. Ford did not allow the Merc divison to use the 271HP 289 in 1964. The 271HP K-code has solid lifters.
