1963 Ford Falcon Futura
STK 2095 1963 Ford Falcon Futura If you are a fan of the show â€˜Jay Leno's Garage', you may have seen an episode that that features Jay's white 1963 Falcon Sprint. It is one of his favorite drivers. These little Falcons were the basis for the classic 64-1/2 Mustang. However, as far as structural integrity, many feel that the larger, wider body of the Falcon provides a better performance platform than the early Mustangs. Many of these Falcons were used with great success on road-racing circuits in the â€˜60s. Although this little Futura hardtop is not a factory Sprint, it is a perfect donor for a â€˜clone'. The body and chassis are straight and true. The red finish was applied in 2010 and is in good condition. All of the major chrome components have been re-dipped and the stainless has been reconditioned. The current power train is Ford's bulletproof 170ci straight six that was professionally rebuilt in 2011. It is backed by a 3-speed manual gearbox with â€˜three-on-the-tree'. That said, if you are thinking performance, the engine bay would easily accept a potent 302 crate and the clutch linkage is there for a 4-speed. Easy conversion â€“ Sprint-Plus clone. If you want a unique Blue Oval, come take a good look at this nice example of the early Falcon. You will be pleased. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
