1963 Ford Falcon
1963 Ford Falcon
The Ford Falcon was an automobile which was produced by Ford from 1960 to 1970 across three generations. It was a sales success for Ford initially, outselling rival compacts from Chrysler and General Motors introduced at the same time. The television marketing for this model featured the first animated appearances of the characters from Charles Schulz's acclaimed comic strip, Peanuts, with announcer contribution from Paul Frees.
This car, an early renowned "compact", appealed to the families who would use it as everyday transportation or as a second car. Accordingly, the car's design adopted a modern styling theme that features excellent proportions and minimal trim. We have a well-preserved car, with a respray in a blue metallic, clean interior, and a consignor stated 37K plus mile car.
At the front of this sedan, a simple chrome bumper centers two amber parking lamps below bright headlights and a straight aluminum grille with black horizontal dividers. Above that grille, a sculpted hood hangs minimalist “FORD” lettering between classy gunsight fender toppers, a chromed hood scoop, and like-new glass that's framed in straight stainless trim, mirrored stainless wipers. Correct chrome mirrors and traditional chrome door handles perfectly complement great looking metallic blue paint which is looking fab overall. On back are the Ford jet engine style round taillights and the FALCON name plate done in single chrome lettering. Nice shiny bumpers adorn the fore and aft, and the stainless side spear with the Falcon logo runs down both sides. Standard Ford 14-inch dog dish hubcaps are mounted on blue painted steel wheels.
An all original split bench front seat and matching rear bench are in superior condition. These are cloth and vinyl and are the material the car was born with. Blue carpeting covers the floor, and the Falcon dual bumped up dash in blue and highlighted aluminum set into a black field displays the necessary analog gauges. You can spin a blue steering wheel to your heart's content, as well as push on the half circled chromed interior horn rim, because these are excellently preserved and clean. A radio delete panel is seen. Headliner is tight and unmarred, as are door panels, and all window mechanicals and actuators. A shout out to the trunk which is covered with original factory checkered plaid vinyl in excellent condition.
A 144ci inline 6-cylinder engine is seen under the hood. This is in beautiful condition with jet black engine bay, block and supple wires and hoses. It is topped with a blue valve cover which is excellent, and a blue air cleaner cover, which has a 1-barrel carburetor underneath feeding the inline 6-cylinder. 3 speeds for the column shifted manual transmission make it go, and it pushes power rearward to a 3.10 axle.
Clean, mean, and black underneath. There is minimal to no surface rust even seen here and very little road dirt. Presenting not only very nicely, but also very simply we can see independent coil springs for the front, and leaf springs for the back, and drum brakes for all 4 corners. All mechanicals underneath the vehicle are in very good condition and make it worth your while to gaze at the underside photos to get a real appreciation of this car.
Off to the grocery store for this Falcon, it started right up, and ran like a dream come true. Good acceleration, smooth manual shifting, and the interior was very comfortable and roomy. Since this car is a radio delete, I had my cohort sing to me as we motored along the test track. All functions worked well with the exception of the rear turn signal makers and brake lights.
Lovingly cared for over the years the pride shows in this awesome example of early Ford candy for the masses, way before the jellybean plastic econoboxes offered today. An original car, that is priced right, and is getting ooohs and ahhhs before it even hits the showroom floor. Is this classic in your future? It should be because it's a great survivor.
