1964 Ford Falcon Futura
Ford knew that not all people who bought a compact were willing to miss out on premium features. For those who desire style and comfort with their lightweight cars, there was the 1964 Ford Falcon Futura convertible. The 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 profile. In fact, these second-generation Falcons seemed to strike a nice balance between American flair and European sensibilities, and the Vintage Burgundy paint represents this perfectly. After all, the deeper hue has the attractiveness of red, but a more sophisticated tone that makes this drop top look more refined. But then you also get those true American touches like the extra wide chrome bumpers, bright factory wheel covers, and Futura-specific aggressive side streak trim that looks like an arrow pointing this Falcon forward. With the flick of a switch the power convertible top opens this Falcon to the world. So if you like the way the black roof looks against the burgundy paint, then you'll like the black interior even better. Bucket seats with a center console are what we all want in a classic '60s machine, and these look like there has been all the right care and investment over the years. That's why the ribbed texture is crisp, and it's complete, right down to the insignia trim. In fact, speaking of trim, just like the exterior, the bright trim is plentiful and tasteful. You see it in the console, door panels, and sweeping across the dash. You slip behind the factory-style wheel, and the extra long speedo flanked by secondary gauges instantly reminds you of its Mustang sibling. The inline-six motor has the kind of honest appearance that people love at car shows these days. In fact, this one is already a local award winner, and we bet the tidy setup has a lot to do with that. The bold color on the block, valve cover, and air topper radiate nicely from within the dark engine bay. And this one looks correct, right down to the FoMoCo coolant retention bag. Since you have complete control over it all with a four-speed, manual transmission, this lightweight Falcon has a nice amount of extra spring in its step going down the road. This Falcon Futura is that fun and affordable classic drop top that's turn-key ready to put a smile on your face. But you're not the only one who recognizes a good value, so don't miss out. Call now!
