1965 Ford Falcon Convertible
1965 Ford Falcon Convertible
Originally Edsel Ford wanted to use the Falcon name for a car in 1936, but he was out voted on the use of this name. Ford would have to wait until 1960 to actually use that name. The Second generation of the Ford Falcon began in 1964 with a more squared off design, and many upgrades including an engine upgrade. The convertible option for this year only produced 6,191 units, and half way through the year, this option was discontinued.
A frame up restoration, with painstaking attention to detail is presented with this Falcon Futura (bench seat) convertible. Beautiful custom paint, all redone mechanicals, as well as every square inch of the frame and undercarriage was meticulously restored. A beautiful example of the year, but even better with some tasteful customization thrown in for good measure.
A beautiful blue which magically transforms itself into with the use of pearlescent purple at various viewing angles covers the carefully hammered, and straight exterior panels. A swath of white, emulating a jet trail, is bordered by intense purple pin-striping for edging, is seen through the belt of this car. Bumpers, badging, and bright work are all in very good condition, and correct for this model year. Eagle alloy wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped with P205/65-R15 Toyo radials. A cream colored, electrically actuated convertible top is very clean, and free from any major scratches, and cloudiness on the rear window. The underside views of this car are as immaculate as the topside and show some of the work that went into this restoration.
Front split bench, and rear bench seats carry the exterior color perfectly into the passenger space. Blue cloth tweed with vertical stitching in the centers are surrounded by complimentary blue vinyl piping, and vinyl bolsters. Heavy use of chrome can be seen at the hinge area of the front seats, and this sits in a sea of nicely done greenish blue carpet throughout. An original padded dash (new for 1965) tops a blue metal front dash plank that is loaded with original radio, gauges, glovebox, and essential knobs. An original Falcon steering wheel fronts the plank and is in fair condition. An automatic shifter is seen on the tree. Aftermarket speakers adorn the lower tub area and put out some sound that could put you in the front row at the Grateful Dead Concert.
The High performance 289ci V8 takes its place under the hood and is topped by the original Ford Falcon chromed air cleaner. An Edelbrock intake manifold is seen atop the pristine engine. A 3-speed automatic is attached to the back of the engine and pushes the car smoothly down the road.
LOOK! It's a bird....no its a plane....no its a Falcon, and it has really cool paint, and has been restored, so now I don't have to do it... And it's a convertible. Let's go and take it up Main Street and have a 1 car parade and car show. You know turn some heads!
