1963 1/2 Falcon Futura hardtop
This "scatback" version was introduced mid year...and has a more
streamlined appearance than the formal roofline (Thunderbird inspired) that
preceeded it. This one looks in showroom condition. This sports air
conditioning, nice bucket seats and a console.
1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster
A mechanically very sophisticated car. This body style was in mid run, and
1963 would be the last year for the style. Note the hash marks in the rear
quarterpanels..next year they would be in the doors. Note the convertible
top lowered into the trunk cavity. I'm sure luggage space was limited by
this somewhat, but probably not as much as those cars where the steel top
folded into the trunk When sitting in those seats, you felt surrounded by
the instrument panel...a veritable cockpit.
The very large tailights completed the rocket/airplane feel!
1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible
I had videoed this car some months ago, but felt it needed more exposure.
The car is flawless..beautiful paint and interior! That shade of green was
very popular at the time! The "continental kit" rear spare and the fender
skirts complete the look of the time!
1950 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn Saloon Blu AmeliaIsland031315
Beautiful Rolls has a 4.3 liter straight six engine. It would have a four
speed manual transmission...automatic four speed wasn't offered until the
1952 model. This model originally was designed for export, which helps
explain the left hand drive. The exterior and interior speak for
