More Details & Pictures
1963 Ford Falcon. Condition is “Used”.
Holy Cow this car is fantastic!
This is a RARE 1963- 1/2 Ford Falcon Futura Sports Convertible with the original 170 cubic inch straight six engine, which produced not 100hp…but 101HP! It’s mated to a smooth shifting 4 on the floor, and she is smooth and quiet! She has her original bucket seats, upgraded center console, (only in Futura models) chrome center horn ring, New tires (about 8 months old) new stainless muffler and tailpipe, 4 new shocks, starter relay and radiator!!!
1963 was the first year the Falcon got a convertible and the did it right! the Futura was the top of the line trim with TWO horns, ( no idea why), a total of three ashtrays, rear armrests, chrome side window moldings, back up lights (another accessory), chrome hood scoop, padded dash (which has a small crack) AM radio, and rocker panel moldings! She has the works!
We picked her up just months ago from the Original Family who had the Car since new in California, then had it shipped to Arkansas. They are at the age where they needed to downsize, so they were kind enough to sell it to us! The owner drove it from Arkansas to Joplin, MO. Where I met him and drove it with confidence up to Kansas City,MO.
She drives amazingly!
EVERYTHING Works Great! Top looks to be in great shape, the motor makes it go up and down just fine.
She comes with original Fender skirts, back up lights, the hubs on the wheels were and upgrade as well! All original Ford parts.
Interior was redone some years ago, and could use some love. The front seats actually match the rear seats, but have seat covers on and I took a peak… they should probably stay on until a refresh on the interior is happening as the threads are getting pretty bare. The back seats however, are in fine shape as you can see.
The paint looks really good! Not Amazing, not show quality, but for a daily driver she turns heads and I get compliments EVERY time i take her out. Everyone LOVES this blue paint. It was repainted back in the 90’s… and there are minor paint dings, nicks and the usual for a car that has been enjoyed.
And yes, there are less than 48,000 miles on her!
She was enjoyed in only the best weather, which is another reason I can confirm what the gentleman told me, there seems to be zero rust. You read that right, none. None that I can find! She has the black leather cover for the “boot” when the top is down and it buttons right on and off.
I was gone for the last two weeks, pumped the gas twice, pulled the choke out, turned the key and she purred right up!
My son and I have installed rear seat belts. Thats right, in 1963 FRONT belts were an upgrade accessory! And while you could get not one, but TWO ash trays in the rear… you could not buckle up while smoking next to the guy or girl next two you who was also most likely smoking. HAHA! (But seriously, the car has no smell or hind of smoke.)
If you need more info, pics, a video of something, just ask. We are only selling because we want a “larger” classic car.
