260 V8, 4 SPEED MANUAL, WILWOOD BRAKES, AM/FM/CD, CRAGER WHEELS, NICE!!
It shouldn't be a surprise that the Ford Falcon makes a pretty decent performance car. But take a closer look at this 1963 Ford Falcon Futura, which combines a bright yellow look with a throaty 260 cubic inch small block to create a Mustang-beater with a classic look.
Bright yellow looks just as awesome on the Falcon as it does on the Mustang, or any other muscle car, giving it a sporty look that belies its racing history. The Falcon Futura was the top-of-the-line and it shows, with added trim and a great upscale look that was more Galaxie than grocery-getter. Paint and bodywork look great, suggesting that someone was really enjoying the idea of a high-end Falcon that could run with the ponies. Gaps are even, the panels line up right, and the sharply creased sheetmetal is crisply rendered. The side insert makes the compact Falcon look longer and leaner with a sense of motion, and has a timeless touch even after 50 years. It also wears '260' badges on its fenders, a subtle warning to folks who might under-estimate this slick hardtop, and all of the chrome is accented nicely with polished 14'' Crager SS wheels.
The clean interior remains fairly stock with factory bench seats at the front, and rear covered in soft two-tone grey cloth. Falcon instrument panels didn't offer a lot of information, but a Sunpro tachometer has been mounted to the right of the steering column to keep an eye on engine revs. A Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo head unit is fitted underneath the dash, which allows the original AM radio to remain in its place. That dash is a body-matched unit that is complemented with a large diameter steering wheel to make turning a breeze, and a white cue ball topped shifter is within easy reach for quick shifts to the 4-speed manual transmission.
The nicely detailed engine bay cradles a 260 cubic inch V8. In truth, almost any small V8 is a tidy fit, but with a few well-chosen components this one looks and acts far more ferocious than any 260. Framed by yellow fenders and a yellow firewall, the small block provides a nice contrast with a chrome air cleaner and chrome valve covers. An Edelbrock carburetor and intake make the power feel effortless, and a Mallory distributer sends sparks to all eight cylinders. When the air/fuel mixture is burnt, gasses are sent out a dual exhaust systemt for a throaty bark. As stated above, a 4-speed manual transmission is mated to the block and transfers power to the rear wheels, and front disc brakes with a nice upgrade of high end Wilwood calipers with cross-drilled and slotted rotors enhance the Falcon's stopping power.
This Falcon is a neat cruiser that makes plenty of power to humble the big guys, all for a bargain price. With vivid yellow paint, it'll stand out in the crowd and is sure to draw a lot of compliments. It's already seen a good amount of attention in our showroom. Call today!
