1963 Ford Falcon Futura Description

This 1963 Ford Falcon Futura represents everything you want. It has a nice history with correct-style V8 power and a long term owner (47 years!) And that's combined with nice upgrades that include cold-blowing A/C, a professional respray, and a five-speed.

Falcons have a terrific style all their own that are really getting to be fully appreciated on the classic car market. This is especially seen on the up-market Futura trim. The black vinyl roof shows off the pillarless hardtop profile sets the tone for a great classic. Its premium status also means this Falcon is dressed up with plenty of brightwork, including bombsight fender ornaments, beautiful intricate grille, wide shining bumpers, rocket-inspired taillights, and the full-length side trim that seems to keep this coupe pointing forward. It's such a well-done shining package that the upgraded polished alloys fit right in. All of this shows exceptionally well on a modern interpretation of the factory-correct Heritage Burgundy color. But that extra metallic element tells you they invested in a quality respray, and that also hints at more investments in the car.

This car was cherished by one owner for nearly half a century, and in that time, there were some thoughtful upgrades. The interior might just be the best place to see that. The seats take the exterior paint and vinyl roof as inspiration for a black and burgundy two-tone. The door panels also match to deliver a uniform look inside and out. As a true 1960s classic, there's plenty of polished trim on the doors, dash, and center console. This is built for true classic car enjoyment, so there are convenient features, like a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Plus, the grippy sports steering wheel makes this a nice driver's machine. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?

The motor is the same 260 cubic-inch V8 that found a home in the early Mustangs. This powerplant is presented nicely in the engine bay with the bright red air topper and matching valve covers. All the essentials look well maintained, right down to the belts, wires, and hoses. You'll also notice the upgrade to an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. This one fires up readily and makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. And you really get to take full control of the V8 power thanks to the upgraded five-speed manual transmission.

Complete with owner's manual and title documentation, you can see how this Falcon can easily outshine its Mustang offspring at the car shows. A hardy V8, five-speed, custom interior, and dazzling paint... who knew true distinction could be this affordable? Call today!!!
