260 V8, AUTO, RECENT PROFESSIONAL RESPRAY AND INTERIOR, POWER TOP, GREAT DRIVER!
Ford knew that not all people who bought a compact were willing to miss out on premium features. For those who desired V8 power and style with their lightweight cars, there was the 1964 Ford Falcon Furtura convertible.
The Falcon has really come into its own in the classic car market. No longer just the car that fathered the Mustang, the sensible style has matured into an instantly recognizable profile. In fact, these second-generation Falcons seemed to strike a nice balance between American flair and European sensibilities, and the iconic Wimbledon White paint represents this perfectly. It earns the iconic English name with crisp sheetmetal in the pristine and proper color – like a pinpoint Oxford shirt. It looks particularly nice thanks to a professional respray within the last few years. But then you also get those true American touches like the extra wide chrome bumpers, half-moon hubcaps, and Futura-specific aggressive side streak trim that looks like an arrow pointing this Falcon forward.
With the flick of a switch the power convertible top opens this Falcon to the world. So while the exterior has a subtle classy appearance, the restored red interior really stands out and turns heads. The ribbed seat covers look fresh and flank a correct center console. Just like the exterior, the bright trim is plentiful and tasteful. You see it in the console, door panels, and sweeping across the dash. You slip behind the factory-style wheel, and the extra long speedo flanked by secondary gauges instantly reminds you of its Mustang sibling. But while you have a great period-correct appearance throughout the restored interior, you also start to pick up on some upgrades. For example, there's a newer center-mounded tach, and the AM/FM/CD stereo mounted below the dash means you can listen to some very modern tunes in your cool vintage droptop.
The engine is the same 260 cubic-inch V8 that found a home in the early Mustangs, but this one has been enhanced for both appearance and performance. The motor shines nicely with a polished air cleaner and valve coves. Plus, there have been upgrades such as the Summit Racing four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a rumbling dual exhaust. There's even been care during the restoration to maximize reliability with components like the aluminum radiator, electric fan, and Mallory electronic ignition. So combine this exceptional powerplant with the lightweight body, and you have a very desirable droptop. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and modern cruising tires, and this is a great anytime choice.
This Falcon Futura is both honest and amazing – two qualities that make it the darling of any car show. It has all the right features to be seriously fun on the road, the price is quite affordable, and it has all the right chrome to be the new crown jewel of your driveway. Call today!!
