1963 Ford Falcon Sprint

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 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 Falcon trim that's been upgraded further to the Sprint 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. Plus, this one carries the Sprint-specific wire wheels for a nice distinctive but vintage touch. In fact, the only modern feature you'll find on the exterior are the upgraded headlights that have a much better projection for night driving. It all looks great on a super-straight body that is looking sharp in a professional application of a very racy red. It makes this hardtop look premium, vintage, and tasteful all rolled into a compact package.A black vinyl bucket seat interior is the perfect way to continue the sporty and premium feeling this Falcon gives off. The ribbed seat covers look fresh and flank a correct center console with bright lid. Gorgeous door panels recall just a touch of the earlier 1950s with their shiny materials and lots of polished trim. The adapted and upgraded Mustang steering wheel is a nice reminder who the daddy of the pony car was. Beyond that is a familiar instrument panel is in excellent condition, and yes, that center-mounted tachometer was part of the factory Sprint package. It's also a welcomed addition because this is a true driver's car, with the optional floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission. There has been some nice investments into more modern upgrades, too. Some of them are in plain sight, like the air conditioning that's running modern R134a, but others are nicely hidden like the AM/FM/CD stereo that's located in the glovebox.Stuffing a 260 cubic-inch V8 in a lightweight car works really well... Carroll Shelby sure thought so! 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. It has a great presentation with tidy wires and hoses, as well as the bright air cleaner and valve covers. But beyond its style is added performance and reliability of components like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and MSD distributor, wires, and coil. The dual exhaust system sounds muscular without being obnoxious, making this Falcon more of a sleeper than any Mustang could ever muster.This is a true all-around classic hardtop. 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. Fully sorted and ready to run, this great looking Falcon will be flying out of our showroom soon. Call now!!
