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. So if you're looking for a quite authentic and premium classic, read on... 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 Futura trim with 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. Even the wire wheels are correct. It all looks great on a straight hardtop body that is in its factory-correct shade of Peacock Blue. In fact, this coupe has exceptionally low mileage thanks to spending the majority of its life with one owner, and three decades of that in storage. And since this Falcon was originally ordered for Ford's #22 Charlotte sales region, it likely spent the last half-century right near our showroom! The interior is a two-tone light and dark turquoise vinyl, which is how the car came from the factory. The dual colors make for a uniform appearance on the door panels, dash, and seats. It all coordinates so well with the exterior that you'll love keeping all the windows of this pillar-less hardtop down so everyone can get a good look inside. You'll also love showing off the time-capsule like setup where even the factory-style AM radio is still on display. But more than just look vintage, this is a driver's machine. That's why you get the bucket seats with a stylized center console in-between. The grip of the correct grooved steering wheel is what classic car motoring is all about. Stuffing a 260 cubic-inch V8 in a lightweight car works really well... just ask Carroll Shelby. In this Falcon, it makes for entertaining acceleration around town, and it's a lot of fun to play with thanks to its three-speed manual transmission. That V8 nestled between the shock towers just seems to be a cool reminder of the Mustang linage. As a bonus, it's believed to be original to the car, and so the added polished components mean you get to show it off and talk about the V8. This is a true all-around classic hardtop with style and substance. Fully sorted and ready to run, this great looking Falcon will be flying out of our showroom soon. Call now!
