GREAT COND, 260 V8, 4 SPD MANUAL, LOCAL CAR, POWER TOP, NICE PAINT & INT, RARE
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 1963 Ford Falcon Furtura Sprint.
The Ford 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 flair. This is especially seen on the top of the line Furura trim with Sprint convertible package. Its premium status means this Falcon is dressed up with plenty of jewelry, ranging from the arrow-shaped side trim, to the neat little "bombsight" fender ornaments up front. Even the wire wheels are correct. It all looks great on a super-straight body that is in its factory-correct shade of Corinthian White. Best of all, aside from it being a convertible, this Falcon was originally ordered for Ford's #22 Charlotte sales region, which means it likely spent most of its 52 year right near out showroom!
While the exterior has a subtle classy appearance, it also means the red interior really stands out and turns heads. The ribbed seat covers look fresh and flank a correct center console with bright lid. Gorgeous door panels recall just a touch of the 1950s with their shiny materials and lots of polished trim. The familiar instrument panel is in excellent condition, and yes, that center-mounted tachometer was part of the factory package on this premium droptop. It's also a welcomed addition because this is a true driver's car, with the optional floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission. This one even comes with a factory power top, which is true rarity in this class.
Stuffing a 260 cubic inch V8 in a lightweight car works really well... just ask Carroll Shelby. In this Falcon, it makes for entertaining acceleration around town, and it's a lot of fun to play with thanks to its optional four-speed manual transmission. That V8 nestled between the shock towers just seems to be a cool reminder of the Mustang linage. As a bonus, this one is a Furtura Sprint, and the motor has not been over dressed, so you can show it off with a survivor-like level of pride. In fact, this beauty even shows signs that it's the original motor. The dual exhaust system sounds muscular without being obnoxious, making this Falcon more of a sleeper than any Mustang could ever muster.
This Falcon Sprint 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, and all the great chrome to be the new crown jewel of your driveway. Call today!!
