This 1963 Ford Falcon Futura Convertible has the instant appeal of a red-on-red drop-top. And when you want a classic that's built for driving, upgrades like a powerful 289 V8 and four-wheel disc brakes turn this into quite an alluring ride.
This Falcon is a bit of a meaner bird than many of the rest out there, and it shows that Ford set this up for a nice performance car look from the beginning. The hint of a hood scoop up front and afterburner-style taillights are quite sporty. Plus, the Futura's side trim is like an arrow pointing this car forward. And there's a nice gloss to the upgraded red paint that makes this sunshine-friendly convertible look good in the daylight. Large dual exhaust tips and competition-style 15-inch Torq Thrust wheels complete the kind of classic that looks like it's ready to go out and drive.
The white roof against the red paint has the kind of all-American appeal as a Coca-Cola bottle, but for real distinction, you'll want to power it down. After all, a red drop-top with a red interior is always quite attractive. It has a stock-style appearance, but there have also been good investments in places like newer carpeting and upholstery. And the moveable center console with cup holders makes for a comfortable front seat. Plus, the wood and chrome sports steering wheel gets you ready for a spirited driving experience.
The Falcon would father the Mustang the next year, and since that car was known for its 289 cubic-inch V8 power, it also fits nicely in this lightweight drop-top. More than just added displacement, this upgraded motor has added power from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a sweet-sounding H-pipe dual exhaust. This also has the right supporting components, like the MSD ignition, Taylor plug wires, and an aluminum radiator. This makes for a good driver with a three-speed automatic transmission, an upgraded tubular A-arm front end, and a Ford 9-inch rear. Plus, the modern sport tires and four-wheel power disc brake package offers firm control.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is the classic that has been upgraded to be enjoyed. So if you're a driver, it's time to take this Falcon home. Call today!!!
