1965 Ford Falcon Futura Convertible 33K Miles 1 Family Owned
This 1965 Ford Falcon Futura Convertible has a very interesting
history, both with the Ford Motor Company, and the original owners
who purchased it in 1966. According to the build history from the
data plate, it was "born" January 7th, 1964. It was sent to New
York to be on display at the World's Fair of the two seasons in
1964 and 1965 (Documentation letter from Ford Motor Company). It
was then brought back to Ford Motor Company before being sold to
its first owners in February of 1966. It has been a well-loved and
cared for "member of the family" since "new". You will note very
few cosmetic or condition flaws considering its history of very low
original mileage (33,400), not used during the winter months, and
exceptional care by the mother and daughter as original owners. The
overall condition is "unrestored original".
Options include the Cruisomatic Transmission, Rocker Panel
Mouldings, AM Radio, Electric Wipers and Windshield Washer, Padded
Dash, and Wire Wheel Covers.
