With its substantial V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and an
upgraded suspension, it's hard to beat this 1963 Ford Falcon Futura
convertible for vintage top-down driving fun. And when you see the
upgrades - from the shining paint to the A/C interior - you'll
realize how irresistible this classic really is.
A Ford Falcon in its range-topping Futura trim seems to strike a
nice balance of premium and sporty offered in a right size package.
This restored convertible has plenty of brightwork, including
beautiful chrome bumpers, intricate grille, dual gunsight fender
ornaments, and afterburner-style tail lamps. And we especially love
the arrow-like Futura side trim that seems to keep this convertible
pointing forward. And have you noticed how the white streak within
this trim coordinates with the white roof? It's all part of a
thoughtfully done total package. And they upgraded the paint to a
Ruby Red that has a terrific gloss, and the metallic element loves
to radiate in the sunshine - exactly what you want on a
convertible. And those American Racing Heritage Edition Torq Thrust
wheels add to the shine while their 16-inch size lets you fit
better modern tires.
The white roof looks nice in place, but with the flip of a switch,
it powers down to reveal a stellar red interior. It has a
sophisticated look as it coordinates with the darker exterior red,
and there's even a matching red convertible boot. More than just a
great color, they made some solid investments in this Falcon. The
upholstery, carpeting, door panels, and dash all have the inviting
look of quality. And modern upgrades like an AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo
w/USB input and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning mean everyone
is going to want to go for a ride. But this one really speaks to
the driver the best. You have front bucket seats, a Lokar shifter,
a red-wrapped sports steering wheel, a tilt column, power steering,
and a fully upgraded gauge panel.
While you've already seen some well-integrated upgrades, the best
one is under the hood. Ford's V8s fit nicely under the hood of the
best Falcons. But while the factory stopped at 260 cubic-inches,
this one has a 302 cubic-inch motor. More than just a serious
displacement increase, this convertible has been further upgraded
with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum radiator, and
headers feeding the dual exhaust. This is a strong heart that's the
base for a great all-around driver. That's why you have more
upgrades like the Heidts tubular A-arm front suspension, modern
sport tires, and power front disc brakes w/drilled & slotted
rotors. Plus, a four-speed automatic transmission with
highway-friendly overdrive makes this one great to enjoy on trips
near or far.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a very thoughtful restoration
