If you're looking for a fun classic that is as unique as it is cool, this
impressive '65 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting for!
When this striking Futura rolled into our showroom, one thing was
immediately apparent. The quality of its restoration is top notch in every
way; and whoever spent the time hammering its solid body back into shape
has either spent most of their adult life in a body shop or restored more
than their fair share of second generation Falcons. From the top of its
smooth roof to the bottom of its cool Turquoise body, this car is much
straighter than when it rolled out of Ford's Lorain, Ohio manufacturing
facility and features a great looking coat of urethane paint which displays
virtually no flaws.
The car's reliable but basic 6-cylinder engine was swapped for a larger 351
Cleveland four valve V8 that looks great covered in a thick coat of
traditional Ford Blue paint. And its clean engine bay was fitted with an
assortment of dress up pieces, which range from gray hood hardware to
polished stainless fuel lines, and then refinished in the same slick
Turquoise urethane as its glossy exterior panels. The 351 gets its air and
fuel from an Offenhauser aluminum intake which props a Holley 4-barrel
carburetor below a chrome topped, satin black dual snorkel air cleaner.
Fire is provided by a traditional points distributor that sends spark
through eight Autolite Pro Fit premium plug wires which snake around finned
aluminum Ford Racing valve covers. And cooling is provided by a Northern
aluminum radiator which is complete with both a polished cap and a polished
Motivation is provided by a reliable Ford C6 3-speed automatic transmission
and a traditional Ford nine inch rear end. Steering is provided by a
traditional manual rack which gives the car a unique, vintage feel. And
braking is provided by a combination of manual front discs and manual rear
drums which do an excellent job of providing fade free, drama free stops.
Keeping the car firmly planted on the pavement is a nice set of Halibrand
15 inch Five Spoke wheels which ride on 195/65 Hankook radials up front,
and 215/70 Cordovan Centron radials out back. And overall, the bottom of
this Falcon presents very well with solid floors that display no signs of
rust, a straight frame that shows no indication of damage, and a slew of
road ready parts that all function just as they should.
This cool Falcon's tasteful and comfortable two-tone blue 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, rebuilt factory gauges ride
inside a fully restored dash which hangs pristine stainless trim above a
set of modern, chrome trimmed auxiliary gauges and a chrome shifter that's
complete with an awesome piston shift knob. At the sides of the car, great
looking two-tone door panels wrap like-new vinyl around restored, stainless
trimmed armrests, fresh chrome handles for the doors and windows and
correct chrome emblems. And in the middle of the car, completely rebuilt
and recovered two-tone blue bench seats provide the perfect spot for main
street cruise nights. In front of those seats, a correctly restored
steering wheel holds a chrome horn button above a chrome turn signal stalk
and a large, column mounted Sunpro tachometer. Below the seats, excellent
looking dark blue carpet rides under color-matched floor mats. And above
the seats a like-new tan headliner leads the eye from chrome A-pillar
covers and a flame embossed rearview mirror to a straight and fade-free
package tray which hangs two speakers over a fully restored trunk.
Solid, well-done early 60s metal like this doesn't come along too often,
and given the attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long
either! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
