The Ford Falcon is an automobile that was produced by Ford from 1960 to 1970 across three generations. It was a sales success for Ford initially, outselling rival compacts from Chrysler and General Motors introduced at the same time. The Falcon was offered in two-door and four-door sedan, two-door and four-door station wagon, two-door hardtop, convertible, sedan delivery and Ranchero pickup body configurations. Much has been written about the Falcon, and more specifically, the Futura and its sporting sibling, the Sprint, and how that line spawned the Mustang. Yet few collectors today tend to recognize the Sprint for what it actually is: a compact muscle car. It offers a relatively light curb weight; a small, yet comfortable, interior, and plenty of V-8 power. Bolted into the Sprint for the 1964 model year was the same 260-cu.in. V-8 that had powered the mid-1963 models. The Holley two-barrel carburetor fed the air/fuel mixture into a 8.7:1 compression ratio made possible by the 3.80 x 2.87-inch bore and stroke. When pressed, the engine produces 164 horses at 4,400 rpm, along with 258-lbs.ft. of torque at 2,200 rpm. The increasing demand for more power, even after the release of the Mustang, meant that the 1965 Sprint received the 289-cu.in. engine as its standard power plant. Its larger 4.00 x 2.87-inch bore and stroke and 9.3:1 compression ratio--coupled once again with a Holley two-barrel--banged out 195hp at 4,400 rpm and 282-lbs.ft. of torque. Both the 260 and 289 feature five main bearings and hydraulic lifters. Here again, the 289--the only available V-8 in the Sprint in 1965--was the same engine utilized in the larger series of Ford cars, as well as the Mustang. The other big difference from the previous model year was the elimination of chrome dressings. The 1964 and 1965 model years are the second-generation Falcons, distinctly restyled with a fresh, sharply sculptured look, complete with dramatic, racy lines. The new look fits in with Ford's "Total Performance" image, of which the Sprint was a part. There are two Sprint models this year: a hardtop like this one and a convertible coupe. The hardtop here is one of 2,806 units made with a base price of $ 2,337. The convertible had 300 copies made with a price tag of $ 2,671. Features to note start with that aggressive grille with single headlamps, a convex ridge runs the length of each side, dressed off with chrome trim that starts at the front fender, and gradually widens as the feature runs towards the tail, bucket seats and a center console as standard equipment, a tachometer, comfort and safety options included power steering, a radio, tinted glass, a padded dash and visor and seat belts. Eventually, the new Ford Mustang won many hearts and the Falcon Sprint was discontinued after '65. This one is a beauty, finished in Vintage Burgundy Poly paint. Thanks very much for viewing this extraordinary 1965 Ford Falcon Sprint hardtop.

1964 Ford Falcon Futura - Gateway Classic Cars St. Louis - #6495
#6495 Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a very sharp and nicely modernized 1964 Ford Falcon Futura. This is a car that has the best of both worlds: classic styling inside and out from 1964, but modern day creature comforts hidden nicely underneath. On the outside we have a '64 Falcon Futura finished in white which looks stock save for some 5 spoke chrome wheels. The paint is very slick and shows off the straight body. The trim is in great shape including beautifully chromed front and rear bumpers. The interior is black vinyl which has been beautifully done and still smells new. A tilt column has been added, but the rest appears quite stock. It has a modern stereo which mimics the look of an old AM unit and would fool most. Its under the hood and under the car where things start to look more than stock. Pop the hood to reveal a strong running 302 CID V8 which is nicely dressed wearing some two tone "302" valve covers. Sitting on top is an Edelbrock carburetor and the engine exhales through manifolds with dual Exhaust. An Accel super coil leads to a Mallory distributor to supply sufficient spark, and a nicely sized aluminum radiator keeps it all cool. To slow it all down this one has power brakes, with disc in the front, and a nicely dressed chrome master and Booster. The goodies don't stop there, the tilt column inside may have given away the fact that this one now has power rack and pinion steering. The suspension has been upgraded with tubular A-Arms so now this thing handles like a dream. Perhaps one of the most welcome upgrades is the Air Conditioning which is all nicely plumbed and keeps a factory look inside mounted beneath the dash. The Falcon Futura was a great looking car to begin with, so it's nice to see this one finished in a factory color and exterior appearance. The upgrades that have been added with assist with power, handling, and reliability. Located in our St. Louis Showroom, this 1964 Ford Falcon Futura can be seen including 50+ HD pictures and video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
