1964 FALCON FUTURA
Introduced September 2, 1959, the Ford Falcon is a front-engine, rear-drive six passenger compact car produced from 1959 to 1970 across three generations. A sales success for Ford initially, the Falcon outsold contemporary rivals from Chrysler and General Motors.
The 1964 Falcon was given a more aggressive grille and a completely restyled body. The base engine was an overhead valve 170 cubic-inch 6-cylinder engine with the 260 cubic-inch V8 “Challenger” engine being top of the line.
There were several body styles and trim levels to select from. It was available as a 2- and 4-door sedan, hardtop coupe, sport hardtop, convertible, Sprint hardtop, Sprint Convertible, and station wagon.
The top trim level was the 'Futura.' These models included a chrome horn ring, rear armrests with ashtrays, chrome hood ornament, chrome side window moldings, chrome windshield and rear window moldings. The Futura symbol could also be found on the front fender. There were two horizontal sloping chrome strips on the side of the body.
These cars became the base for the 1964 ½ Mustang with the Mustang’s mechanicals being almost identical to those of the Falcon.
A beautiful example, this red and white Futura turns heads wherever it goes.
The car has its original V8 260ci Challenger engine, two speed Fordomatic column shift transmission and 3.25:1 axle ratio. It has power steering and boosted 4-wheel disc brakes.
The engine is strong, the transmission smooth and the exhaust note glorious. A front sway bar has been added to enhance handling performance.
The car has a power white convertible top and matching red boot for when the top is down. All badges and Futura emblems are intact.
Comfortable red and white seats, sparkling chrome, styled steel wheels with BF Goodrich tyres and an updated Ford radio with CD stacker in the trunk round out this cool cruising package.
The car has its original 2-barrel carburetor however a 4-barrel intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor come with the car.
