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 Falcon Sprint.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/mk8bp8z 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 detail. 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!
