This 2nd Generation Falcon Futura is the perfect combination of power, tyle, nd class that makes the collector car hobby so much fun to be a part of!
Owned by just one person for the past 21 years, his car has been garage stored and babied and shows it!
The bright Rangoon Red factory Ford color is correct to what the car was born with, ut had been redone in the early 90’s. It still looks glossy, lick, nd wet, nd shows no more blemishes and signs of use than your average two year old car at the local dealers lot does!
The car has been carefully cleaned, axed, nd stored indoors under a top quality car cover which is included. This has kept the car looking fantastic, ith just the normal small scuffs, tone chips, nd typical “regular use” light blemishes you would see on any car of this caliber and investment range.
I have taken a 4x4 felt covered magnet over the entire painted surface of the car and it sticks like glue, s there is NO sign of any bondo or patch panels, nd no sign of chicken wire or beer cans either. Just good old FORD factory steel, ith solid seams at the rockers, orrect rolls in the fenders, nd no rot to be found. It is a super clean and straight body, ith exceptionally nice gaps and panel fit.
Trim and bright work on the car is original, nd is in good condition all the way around. A weekend with some Mother’s polish and you can make it look even better than it does.
Emblems and badging are in very good original condition.
Chrome bumpers front and rear are original, ook incredible, nd are the kind of clean, traight pieces you just can’t get in a reproduction.
Hubcaps are original, nd show age and signs of use. They are mounted on original steel rims with black paint that has chipped in spots. All the wheels show good for driving and enjoying the car, ut if you want to make it more of a full SHOW car, ou’ll want to clean them up and paint the rims again.
Tires are recent BFGOODRICH Radial T/A’s, nd are sized P205/70R14. They have at least 70% of the useable tread remaining, nd do not need replaced at this time.
Glass on the car is in very good condition, ith just light marks, f anything, o be found. There is no sign of laminate issues, nd there are no cracks or splits in the glass.
Rubber seals and weather stripping looks great, nd the only sign of brittle rubber on the car is the vent window trim, hich is original and has not been replaced in 51 years! It is still serviceable, ut not up to scale with the rest of the clean, ore recent rubber.
The convertible top was replaced not too long ago, nd it still shows wonderfully today! Keep in mind, his car has NOT been detailed, o some of the little water spots and things on the top should simply clean up when you prepare the car for its first show. There are no known rips, ears, r seam pulls, nd the plastic rear window is fog free, nd undamaged.
The power top works just like it should, nd goes up or down in a matter of seconds with the touch of the dash mounted switch. Latches seal it up tight, nd I have had the pleasure of driving the car in a typical Florida torrential downpour, nd it was leak and issue free for me.
The tonneau was new with the top, nd it fastens and sits just as it should, ith all snaps intact and functional. It is clean, eat, nd ready to show.
Overall, he outside of this car is in 8.5 out of 10 condition, nd when you take the time to detail it from stem to stern, t will show even nicer.
Pop open the hood, nd you are met with the cars original 260 V8 CHALLENGER motor that it was born with.
The engine has been rigorously maintained over the years, ith constant oil changes, reventative maintenance, nd many OEM replacement parts installed to make sure it was reliable and ready to go.
Recent upgrades on the car include the fuel pump, uel lines, otor, istributor, lugs, lug wires, arb cleaning, ew fuel sending unit, ater pump, attery, nd a fully re-cored and pressure tested radiator.
It starts easily, dles cleanly, nd is ready to go at a moment’s notice.
Snick the cars original 3-speed transmission into gear, ase out the clutch, nd the 260 gives you power on demand at any throttle position! You can easily spin the tires if you want to, r let the power build through each shift until you are exceeding the speed limit!
Power is smooth and steady, nd ready to help you pass, erge onto the interstate, r just pick on that kid in the Honda Civic at the red light. There is no stuttering, o backfires, o fuel loading or starvation issues, nd it is about as perfectly tuned as you could ask for.
Engine note is healthy and mellow, hanks to the custom installed Cherry Bomb style mufflers put on with the fresh exhaust system.
The prior owner kept fuel logs, nd noted that on the highway the car averages about 18mpg, hile in town, t sits at about 15mpg.
Pop the trunk, nd you get an original and ultra-clean floor pan with no signs of rot, ust, r prior repair. It has some marks from being used as, ell – A TRUNK, ut still looks great! The full-size spare is correct to the car, ut not a modern radial. There is a jack and lug wrench included, s well as the original trunk pan liner in the same plaid finish as the spare tire cover. The liner has seen better days and is included for originalities sake, ut you will probably want to just order a new one.
Trunk seal is recent, ike 90% of the other rubber bits, nd shows wonderfully.
Underneath the car, he chassis is clean and original, nd shows very well.
Pans are original and have no sign of rust, ot, r damage.
The entire brake system was replaced just a few years ago, nd it was then switched over to a full silicone fluid system for safety. USE ONLY SILICONE FLUID IN THE CAR! Braking is spot on, nd the car scrubs off speed without any odd pulling, ander, xcess fade, r unusual modulation.
Ride quality is great, ith just enough give to make all-day cruising seem like a Sunday in your favorite chair, nd a steadiness from the newer shocks and modern radials that lets you have fun carving through those rural twist’s too.
All of the suspension components, eals, ushings, earings, ingpins, nd rods have been checked and appear to be as recent as the prior owners notes said they were.
Tracking is straight and true, nd the car has the perfect amount of steering wheel feedback, nd no slop or sawing when you drive it.
One hand on the wheel is all it takes when flying down the interstate, nd the car will easily manage highway speeds without complaint.
Overall, he mechanicals of this car are in exceptional condition, nd after spending about 150 miles behind the wheel, would not hesitate to drive it anywhere.
Speaking of driving it, ost of your time is going to be spent in the interior, nd it is VERY nice!
Door panels are original, lean, nd show normal signs of use and wear. Door pulls and window rollers are original, nd show light patina and age but work perfectly.
Dice toppers were added to the tops of the door locks to compliment the red and white color scheme. They look great, nd work perfectly, nd the doors lock with the included key.
Kick panels and rear panels are original, nd show typical signs of normal use.
Rear ashtrays, mblems, adging, witches, nd climate controls are all original, ppear in average or above condition, nd do what they should without issue.
Rear view mirror and convertible top chrome trim panels are original, how patina and signs of age, ut work perfectly.
Carpet is in above average condition, ooks amazing, nd is damage free.
Seats are in very good condition as well, ith no rips or tears, nd the split front bench folds like it should to allow passengers easy access to the rear seat.
Original steering column is topped by the original wheel which shows light patina and age, ut could easily be refinished if you wanted.
The chrome horn button has light patina and is non-functional, nd the shift arm and signal arms show light patina but work perfectly.
Dash is original, nd has no cracks or damage.
Front dash panel silver section looks great, nd the gauge housing holds fully functional gauges for FUEL, EMP, PEEDO, nd ODMOMETER.
Odometer shows 89,381 miles, nd the prior owner said he believed it to be correct, ut the State of Florida, s they usually do, utomatically exempted the mileage on the title when they moved here and registered the cars.
Headlights work, i beam switch works, urn signals work, azards work, nd the wipers work.
The climate system works as it should.
The radio is inoperative, nd is not hooked up. I do not know if it works or not, nd the prior owner never had it work either.
The 12V cigar lighter works, nd the car has a functional ashtray and fully lined glove box too.
The interior presents wonderfully, nd the patina on the original items I mentioned really isn’t bad, specially if you are going to drive and enjoy the car.
According to the HAGERTY VALUE TREND VEHICLE INDEX, he car is valued as follows, nd has had a slow and steady value growth over the the past 5 year period.
Condition #1 = $41,300.00
These vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best car, n the right colors, riving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, he car has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, nd materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 cars is "concours."
Condition #2 = $28,700.00
These cars could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 cars that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, ut will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, hrome, lass and interior will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, o unusual noises will emanate from the engine compartment. The vehicle will drive as a new car of its era would. The one word description for #2 cars is "excellent."
Condition #3 = $20,300.00
Cars in this classification could possess some, ut not all of the issues of a #4 car, ut they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, orrect interior. #3 cars drive and run well, ut might have some incorrect parts. These cars are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, nd the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. "Good" is the one word description of a #3 car.
Condition #4 = $13,500.00
These cars are daily drivers, ith major flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, he windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, nd perhaps the fender has a minor dent. The interior could have split seams or a cracked dash. No major parts are missing, ut the wheels could differ from the originals, r the interior might not be stock. A #4 car can also be a deteriorated restoration. "Fair" is the one word that describes a #4 car.
I have priced the car accordingly, nd feel strongly that these affordable American Classic’s will continue the steady rise in value and investment return in the next 5 year cycle. In the area? Come see it. If not, ly down here for a personal showing! I am willing to bet that the first person who comes here to see it in person will buy it.
The title is in the dealerships name, nd this is NOT a consignment car. IT IS TITLED AS A 1973 FORD
MILEAGE is showing 11,854 on the functional odometer, ut it is being sold as mileage exempt at this time. It has an estimated 800-1000 miles since the restoration was completed in June of 2015.
