Affordable honesty never looks this good anymore. This 1963 Ford
Falcon seems to buck the trend of overblown V8s, and in the
process, this coupe is a true representation of the practical
driver in the '60s. Just like back then, you can get a great
looking Falcon at an affordable price...but now you also get
Back in the day this was the kind of car that didn't get much of a glance, but now people will marvel at how well preserved it is. The first step to getting noticed is a very careful restoration that includes paintwork that's a more modern and shiny application, but it stays close to this Falcon's original turquoise. It adds some brightness to the coupe body that's highlighted by the wide grille, wider bumpers, long side trim, and factory hub caps. It's just the right amount of brightwork to really make these little cruiser look special. But this coupe never loses the kind of honesty that reminds us of our high school cruiser, or the family car. In fact, this one looks so period-correct that if you need a movie car (or want to make a few extra $$$ renting it out) this is the perfect representation of the '60s.
Inside, the gold interior with comfortable gold weave insert is a great color for representing the '60s. Best of all, it without resorting to the metallic blue vinyl you'd find in other original cars. The front bench seat is something that would have been replaced on a restomod, but that wouldn't be right on this one. Instead, it is a near perfect time machine going back to the days when the entire family would have rather sat in the front than had the open road obscured from the back seat. Just like any good 1960's car, this sea of gold has coordinating hues across the door panels, dash, and steering wheel. All of this feels very original right down to the heater controls. But by now you've probably spotted the seriously nice upgrade. Bet you wish you had ice-cold air conditioning on trips to grandma's house back in the day...and now you do!
The inline-six motor has the kind of honest appearance that people love at car shows these days. Brightened up with a fresh coat of Ford Blue paint on the block and air cleaner, this one will attract more attention than the chrome V8s in the show field. But this Falcon isn't being completely honest. That's actually a 200 cubic-inch motor, which is 20% larger than the sixes you got in '63. So this lightweight Falcon has a nice amount of extra spring in its step going down the road. We were very plesently surprised at how peppy it is (even better than some V8's!). Between the well-maintained larger motor and two-speed automatic transmission, you are going to love taking out your Falcon for a drive (even in the summertime thanks to the A/C!)
Exceptionally honest and clean with a little extra pep in its step, if you like what you see, you should probably hurry up because we don't see these in this shape often at all. After all, at this affordable price, it could be headed to a movie studio any day now. Call today!!
