1963 Ford Falcon Sprint HardtopWow. You're looking at a 1963.5 Ford Falcon Sprint in its original color of Ming Green. Yes, I would call it more of a blue, but the factory color code is Ming Green. This was a California black plate car (spent its whole life in sunny SoCal - Built in San Jose) until 2016, when it was shipped to Nashville, Tennessee, where it has been garaged unless the sun was shining! The current owner has more than $60k invested in this car, but has decided to make room for something new. Paperwork detailing the work completed is included with this sale.
This is not a perfect show car, but it's perfect from ten feet away. Close inspection will reveal some paint chips and bubbling (see photos), a carpet stain from an AC hose leak, a driver's seat upholstery tear, etc. You will be amazed by the number of honking horns, thumbs up, etc. as you cruise around town, or as you blow past at a comfortable 75 mph on the highway. The power-to-weight ratio is outstanding.
