With a cool color combo, even cooler vintage droptop attitude, and a terrific restoration, this 1963 Ford Falcon Futura Sports Convertible is a great classic worth plenty of attention. And when the crowds do gather you'll be able to tell this drop-top's unique story.
The info that we were told on this is that it started out with a long-term first owner. He was a US Air Force colonel, and both he and the car spent most of their time in northern Mississippi. That means no salt from the roads or sea spray. Its only other owner performed a comprehensive restoration on the car. It was complete about five years and 5k miles ago. The trim tag tells us this is presented in its correct Corinthian White, but the outstanding gloss today is the product of a careful respray during the restoration. A deep shine is what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible, and this also really shows off the quality body panels. This top-of-the-line Futura trim keeps its premium look with plenty of jewelry, ranging from the arrow-shaped side trim, to the neat little "bombsight" fender ornaments up front (perfect for an Air Force man.) Plus, everything from the chrome bumpers to the correct wire wheel covers have a quality shine.
The crisp black convertible top has a nice contrast against the white body, but for true distinction, you're going to want to power it down. The red interior has a bold look, and the exterior trim makes sure to give you a well-coordinated package inside and out. This has a terrific vintage look from the artful steering wheel, to the bright trim on the doors and dash. Premium front bucket seats, a center console, and a well-placed stick shift make this a great classic cruiser. This even has a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette so that you can keep a vintage look while upgrading your driving tunes.
The 170 cubic-inch inline-six motor boldly radiates from within the dark engine bay. We all know these Falcons can accept the Mustang's level of V8 power, but that's not the point on a car like this. With so much history, it's great to have what's believed to be the original powerhouse displayed with pride. It was rebuilt during the restoration to be a smooth-running machine ideal for any time driving. So it's easy to hop in, fire it up, and take full control with the four-speed manual transmission. It's the kind of classic that wants you to feel the road, but it also has a good feeling of a solid driver sitting on modern tires.
The sale comes with plenty of great extras. You get paperwork like the original warranty card, owner's manual, service manuals, and build receipts. There are also cool extras like a car cover and a fender protector. It all proves this an exceptional Falcon drop-top with an exceptional presentation. Don't miss out, call today!
