1964 Ford Falcon Futura Coupe
The Ford Falcon was an automobile which was produced by the Ford Motor Company 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 “muscle car” appealed to all walks of life, from the youth who wanted to feel its power, to the families who would use it as everyday transportation. This consigner has used it from both, as he obtained the car when he was a mere 16 years old, and 40 years later is moving on.
A maroon repaint which appears showroom new covers what is a true original Falcon. No modifications, no race car, no hot rod, just Falcon Futura from 1964. All correct badging, grille, exterior bumpers, lighting, logos, all are there in a beautiful two-door coupe hardtop 1964 Icon.
All original black vinyl split bench front seats, and bench rear seats showing white piping all around, are in superior condition. Black carpeting covers the floor, and the Falcon dash in highlighted aluminum set into a black field displays the necessary analog gauges. An aftermarket AM/FM Cassette radio has been installed, although the original AM radio as well as the aluminum cut out for it, is with the car. Headliner is tight and in good condition, as are door panels, and all window mechanicals and actuators. The addition of a dash mounted tachometer, as well as an under dash mounted oil pressure gauge, add essential information to the driver while competing. Trunk is covered with original factory checkered plaid vinyl in excellent condition.
An upgraded replacement 289ci V8 is seen under the hood with a sticker on the air cleaner that says 260 like it would have had when it left the factory. A 2-barrel Holley carburetor feeds it, and a 4-speed manual transmission makes it go...fast. Drum brakes all around and 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.
Back in the days when the consigner used his hard-earned money to purchase this dream car of his dreams at 16, a car was a treasure, your personality, your very image others would see and judge you by. Obviously appreciated over the years by regular maintenance, and care, the pride shows in this awesome example of early Ford muscle, before they know it was going to be muscle. An original car, that is a priced right, and is getting ooohs and ahhhs before it even hit the showroom floor. Drive away with someone's dream and make it yours.
