BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED SPRINT, ROLLER 302 V8, T5 5 SPD, WILWOOD 4 WHL DISCS, A+
This custom 1965 Ford Falcon Futura Sprint is nothing but great surprises from every angle. Exceptionally shiny on the outside, amazingly plush on the inside, and a thumping 302 V8 with a five-speed under the hood just scratches the surface one this terrific and speedy custom-built classic.
These second-generation Falcons seemed to strike a nice balance between American flair and European sensibilities, and this one really turns it up a notch. It starts with an excellent recent application of British Racing Green Mica borrowed from modern Jaguars. Of course, those black racing stripes on the hood are pure American flair. And that custom set of scoops on the fiberglass hood makes this one look like its much bigger brother – the race-bred R-code Ford Fairlane. There's plenty of great 60s-style chrome on the grille and bumpers, but brightwork that everyone will really be taking a look at are the addition of side pipes (another indication that this is a serious street machine.) Of course, these Futuras always looked fast stinging still thanks to the design that incorporates the full-length accent line. It gives this hardtop the appeal of an arrow cutting through the wind. And with all this attractiveness, don't forget that the 1965 Falcon is also a difficult car to find. The Ford Mustang production was in full swing by the time this car came around. Consequently, Ford only sold about 2,800 of these premium Futura Sprint hardtop coupes that year.
The moment you peek inside of this hardtop, you know they made all the right investments in the interior. After all, those front bucket seats with comfortable cloth inserts are a full custom integration. And not only do they have the kind of modern bolstering to be all-day comfortable, but also yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. All the right vintage pieces are in place, and so you get the ultra-wide speedometer, plenty of bright trim, and even the AM radio is still on display. Oh yes, that's a CB you've spotted under the dash, too. But what you'll really love is how this is a true driver's machine. The sports steering wheel is grippy, the Hurst shifter is calling out for your right hand, and the important tach is front and center on the dash.
You can instantly tell the engine bay was built for performance. The extra tidy setup gives you a clear view at the 302 cubic-inch V8. It has been enhanced and fortified with Scorpion roller rockers, Ford Motorsports E303 camshaft, AFR Renegade aluminum heads, Ford Racing cast valve covers, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding those growling side pipes. This monster motor has all the right supporting components – from the full bracing kit to the aluminum radiator that keeps it all running cool. You have full control over this monster motor and its thunderous soundtrack thank to the upgrade to a T5 five-speed manual transmission that's been reinforced with Ford Motorsports clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel. This feeds a stout Ford 8-inch rear running versatile 3.50 gears. And because all this power is nothing without control, you have great features like traction bars, sways bars front & rear, and slotted & vented Wilwood disc brakes behind each one of those polished slotted mag wheels.
This is a serious custom build. We have the receipts and photos to prove it, but all you really have to do is look at the amazingly clean undercarriage to understand the level of detail that went into making this unique coupe. This is the powerful, distinct, and rare classic you've been waiting for. Don't miss your chance, call today!
