1964 Ford Falcon Futura

Pssst... Here's a secret: Mustangs are really Falcons underneath. Yes, hat's right, his cool 1964 Ford Falcon Futura hardtop runs and drives just like its more popular brother for a fraction of the cost. Complete with a strong-running 302 and a great paint job, t's also somewhat rare in its own right.Restored several years ago, hey decided to keep the bright, ivid code F Guardsman Blue; why change a good thing? Thanks to excellent care and maintenance, he finish remains shiny with only a few minor blems from being driven and enjoyed, nd you certainly can't blame them for that. There's a bit of metallic in the paint, oo, o the compact Falcon seems to take on the look of a bigger, ore substantial car and the light plays over the detailing that's often lost on solid colors. For instance, ig the vestigial tail fins, he dual reliefs running down the center of the hood like racing stripes, nd the cool way the sheetmetal follows the contours of the side trim. Never noticed that stuff on a Falcon before, id you? The car looks great in person, nd you'll be proud to roll up to the next cruise night behind the wheel, nd you'll undoubtedly get extra appreciation for daring to be a little different.Matching blue buckets give the interior a sporty demeanor, nd there's plenty of space for four in this cool ragtop. Since blue is the car's original interior color, t has a very uniform look thanks to a lot of new parts, ncluding carpets with the correct weave along with fresh door panels, new dash pad, nd even proper blue sun visors. The Falcon didn't necessarily include a center console, nd many prefer the purposeful look of this car, hich uses a column shifter for the C4 3-speed automatic transmission. The gauges are basic, ut they all work, nd the original AM radio remains in place. It's extremely clean and the lack of modifications suggests that someone cared about making this one right rather than customizing it to their tastes. We always appreciate that. The steering wheel is particularly nice, ith a bright chrome horn ring and button that add a little flash to the utilitarian passenger compartment. There's also a new mat and spare tire cover, hich give the trunk a factory-correct look.The 302 cubic inch V8 nestled between the shock towers looks awfully familiar, oesn't it? It does a great impersonation of the original 260 and brings a few extra horsepower. It's not over-dressed, ut with a chrome air cleaner and Ford Blue valve covers, t looks nice enough that you can tell it's been loved. Thanks to a 4-barrel carburetor, t makes great power and a wonderful V8 soundtrack, oving the lightweight Falcon easily. A Ford C4 3-speed automatic transmission can take the abuse and delivers better entertainment than you'd expect: just stomp and steer and this little car rears up and goes! Out back, here's a street-friendly 8-inch rear end, lus a lot of new suspension components, ncluding the entire front end. One glance underneath will convince you that this Falcon has nothing to hide. It's highly original, ery solid, nd there's no thick coating of rustproofing goop designed to hide shoddy workmanship. The exhaust sounds muscular without being obnoxious, aking this Falcon more of a sleeper than any Mustang could ever muster, nd those handsome 15-inch Torque Thrust wheels and 215/65/15 General tires fit perfectly and look right.For all the thrills of a Mustang in a more unusual and stealthy package, his Falcon deserves a look.
