Packing a stout, small block V8 in a clean, road ready restoration, this
fully sorted weekend warrior draws big crowds and big compliments wherever
it goes. And if you're one of the many enthusiasts looking for a fun
classic that's both unique and cool, it's your ticket to car guy nirvana!
In typical 60s Detroit fashion Ford's first generation Falcon, adorned with
curved surfaces and creases that stretch from stem to stern, is incredibly
hard to make straight once it's been overhauled or reworked. Fortunately,
the metal on this compact coupe has been subjected to a professional
restoration that involved good panel alignment and an astute attention to
Hoist this Futura's bright red hood and you'll find a beefy Ford V8 that's
been fully rebuilt and dressed to impress. When the car officially
transformed into the old school hot rod you see today, every one of its
details was upgraded in the name of both performance and aesthetics. And
presently, the smooth mill looks great displaying a thick coat of Jet Black
paint inside a nice layer of chrome and traditional, Satin Black fenders.
The engine gets its air and fuel from an Edelbrock Performer intake which
props a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and chrome, open element cleaner beneath
a snazzy Ford wing nut. Fire is provided by a Mallory Unilite distributor,
which sends spark across stamped and chromed valve covers via fresh Radio
Resistance wires. And spent gases are handled by a slick pair of coated
Doug's headers, which connect to either manually operated cut-outs or
coated, true-dual pipes.
Motivation is provided by a reliable 4-speed transmission, which spins a
traditional 9-inch rear end. Braking is provided by a combination of manual
front discs and familiar rear drums, which do an excellent job facilitating
drama-free stops. There's a fully rebuilt suspension, which is currently
fitted with fresh KYB Gas-a-Just shocks. And traction is maximized by a
fresh set of American Racing Torq Thrust Ds, which ride on 205/70R14
Firestone FT70 radials.
This cool Ford's correct and tasteful interior is a classy reminder of the
days when style and appeal were the central focus of automotive design. At
the front of the car, a fully restored dash hangs pristine stainless trim
between a vintage Sprint tachometer, a direct-fit cassette deck and modern,
chrome-trimmed auxiliary gauges. In front of that dash, completely rebuilt
and recovered seats provide the perfect spot for Main Street cruise nights.
Below those seats, fade-free carpet centers a familiar Hurst shifter
between a classy console, clean Ford sills and color-keyed floor mats. And
in front of the driver, an impressive Ford steering wheel spins a burled
wood rim around bright chrome spokes.
Solid, early 60s metal doesn't come along too often, and given the
attention this Ford draws in our showroom, it probably won't last long!

1963 1/2 FORD FALCON SPRINT -- FIRST YEAR OF THE SPRINT
Sculptured bodysides and squared up roofs identify the '63 Falcons. The
Sprint was a Falcon version that presented a racier and more sporty
version. This Sprint hardtop is one of 10,479 units sold. Sprints also
came in a convertible coupe version of which only 4,602 units were sold.
Engine installed in these Sprints was a V8, 260 cid with 164 bhp. The
price tag for the hardtop was $2,320 and $2,600 for the ragtop. I was
always fond of those large round taillights that identified Ford products
for years. The interior in this Sprint surprised me. I never thought a
Falcon product would have such a wonderful interior like this. Enjoy all
the features of this example and thank you very much for viewing this 1963
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.

1963 Ford Falcon Sprint V8 Convertible
Before there was a Mustang,
if you wanted a sporty small car there was a great choice in the Falcon
Sprint. With Fords legendary 260 V8 and later the 289 available in either a
Coupe or a Convertible. There were the usual option choices and it shows
you how people though of this car by the number of 4 speed cars sold. In
case you do not know the 64 Mustangs underpinnings came from the

1963 Ford Falcon Sprint 4 Speed
Nice little Falcon Sprint. Believe it or not, but Falcons were pretty
quick given their light weight. The 271 horsepower 289 HiPo debuted
in '63 and was "available" to order in the Falcon - ONLY to those who new
the secret or had racing/dealer connections. I know 3 - '65 Falcons, 90-'65
Comets and 5 Fairlanes I know of came with that HiPo motor. Comets were
good for low 14s or high 13s tuned and driven right. Ford didn't like
having cars faster than their Mustang Darling. Abingdon, MD

Just a quick update on the car.For the most part finished, just a couple
little things.Heres a walk around and a bit of a Test drive. This actually
is the first time Ive driven it down the road.Weather and Holidays so,
Merry X-Mas to me. It was awesome so far no issues exept those Pie crust
slicks just spin all the time. Barely get on the throttle and they spin.
AWESOME Perfect street car other than I think i just went through 2 gallons
of Fuel to do this Video.
