FRESHLY REBUILT 170CI IN-LINE 6 & AUTO TRANS, FACTORY COLORS, VERY CLEAN FALCON!
Affordable, economical, handsome, and still a lot of fun, this 1963 Ford Falcon Futura hardtop is an awesome way to get into the hobby and enjoy an old car that's not a relic, but simple a fun way to get from point A to point B. Drive it every day or save it for special occasions, this Falcon looks good no matter what you're doing and remains entertaining to drive.
Wearing traditional Corinthian White, which would become Wimbledon White the following year, this handsome Falcon looks like it should cost thousands more than it does. There's a renewed interest in thrifty, fun old cars and this hardtop totally nails it with lots of style and great road manners to go with its clean, chiseled good looks. It was expensively restored a few years ago and not driven much since then, so the paint and bodywork remain in excellent shape, all out of proportion to the sticker price. There's a great shine to the paint, which looks like the 1960s all over again, bereft of excessive metallics or that hard shine that modern cars display. Instead, you get that cool side trim, wonderfully crisp sculpting of the side panels, and a clear Ford identity with the jet-inspired taillights that make it look like big brother Galaxie from behind. The bumpers and stainless trim are in very good condition overall, with only a few pieces showing some pitting that's only visible up close, more proof that this started out as a good, solid original car.
Finding bucket seats in a 6-cylinder Falcon is rather rare, and the entire turquoise interior was clearly restored at some point not too long ago. The seat covers have great detailing and a contrasting bit of trim that gives them a very upscale look. Bright trim on the door panels looks great and the center console offers handy storage and gives the interior a more finished look than just a bare transmission tunnel would. The dash is painted a slightly darker turquoise to add some contrast and all the factory gauges show bright markings and clear lenses, so someone spent some money there, too. The original AM radio is still in the dash and works properly, with secondary controls for heater, defroster, wipers, and fresh air underneath the bright chrome strip going through the center. The back seat is usable by real-sized adults, which is nice, and the spacious trunk is correctly finished with a plaid mat and full-sized spare with jack assembly.
The 170 cubic inch inline-six is an over-achiever, with silky-smooth road manners and a gutsy hit of low-end torque. It was recently rebuilt and detailed, so it looks right under the hood, from the bright orange tin work to the reproduction decals that make it authentic. There are no deviations from the factory setup besides a modern battery and some hose clamps, so it would be easy to take it up a notch if you wanted. Even details like the washer fluid bag on the inner fender are correct. It's backed by a 2-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission that's a good choice, letting the six stretch its legs a bit before shifting into high range. The underside of the car is shockingly clean, showcasing original floors and an easy life someplace warm. A single exhaust system gives it just the right sound and it has a big car ride that makes it easy to drive all day. 14-inch steel wheels with wire wheel covers add some upscale elegance and carry 195/70/14 whitewall radials.
If you've been looking for quality and style at an affordable price, this Falcon really delivers, just as it did in 1963. Call today!
