EXCELLENT BUILD, 418 STROKED V8, TREMEC 5 SPD, PWR STEER, 4 WHEEL DISCS, AWESOME
If you can find a wilder custom build than this one, you wouldn't be able to hang a license plate on it. This 1963 Ford Falcon Futura is on the ultimate go-fast diet, that includes huge weight savings and a powerful V8, to create the coolest intimidation on wheels you'll ever see.
There is no mistaking the cool factor of this Falcon. We don't have to tell you how great the panels are because you can see for yourself. The bare metal was machine sanded for an even pattern, then given a clearcoat to protect the unique shine. In an interesting twist, the extra brightwork that came on the top-of-the-line Futura has been changed to black. So now the body is the brightwork, and places like the grille, tail lamp surrounds, and side accents that were once chrome now standout in their matte finishes. This trim also matches the power coated 17-inch alloy wheels from Vintage Wheel Works. But this coupe is not a complete festival of monotone. All the badging stands out nicely in its wild shade of blue.
Take one look inside, and you'll instantly confirm your suspicions that this is a purpose-built speed machine. All the tuck and roll of a Falcon Futura has been replaced with Mad Max-style metallic function. The heavy non-essentials have been stripped away such as the back seat, center console, paneling, and even carpeting. In its place are custom machined aluminum panels that are a constant reminder of this coupe's killer attitude. You might think that the black on the dash and upper door panels are the last reminisce of the car's original color, but this actually started life as a Mint Green and Turquoise cruiser. So, that stretch of black inside is just another sign of a thoughtful custom build. This matches the surprisingly comfortable leather racing bucket seats, which have five-point racing belts. The driver also gets a grippy Grant sports wheel for the power steering, and beyond that is a full set of gauges. All the chrome might make you think these readouts are 1960s stock, but it's actually a custom AutoMeter setup that has a lot more essential information about what's going on under the hood.
The V8 in the engine bay is like nothing you've ever seen before in a Falcon. The 351 Windsor motor has been stroked to displace a healthy 418 cubic-inches. Of course, the performance upgrades don't stop there. This motor was built with a forged crank, H-beam connecting rods, forged pistons, and aluminum heads by Dart Machinery. It's topped with an Edelbrock Air-Gap intake, performance carburetor, and Spectre Performance cold air kit. Everything exits through custom performance headers mated to seriously mean dual exhaust. All of this is backed up by racing components such as an aluminum radiator w/3000 CFM electric fan, Moroso electronic water pump, Powermaster alternator, and MSD ignition. This makes some serious power, so it's no surprise that it carries the Mustang-rated Tremec TKO500 five-speed manual transmission. From there the power is sent to a weight-saving custom aluminum driveshaft, and then to the limited slip rear end running a 3.73 ratio. If all of this did not have you drooling already, the suspension is a fully adjustable coilover setup with subframe connectors. There's even disc brakes at all four wheels!
This is a true performance build that has so much custom work there's just too much to mention in this space.
