Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With its serious stroker V8 power, upgraded five-speed, and awesome color combo, it's hard to beat this 1964 Ford Falcon Futura convertible for vintage top-down fun. It's the extra-sharp looking classic that has the power and poise to be your favorite driver.
These second-generation Falcons seemed to strike a nice balance between American flair and European sensibilities, and the iconic Wimbledon White paint represents this perfectly. It earns the iconic English name with crisp sheet metal in the pristine and proper color - like a pinpoint Oxford shirt. It looks particularly nice thanks to a high-quality professional respray. So the modern clearcoat shine loves to showcase the quality of the body. Straight lines mean the Futura-specific aggressive side streak trim looks like an almost unbroken line. And when it all looks this good, only mirror-like chrome bumpers will do. And while this one will impress you with its first impression, the Ford's Mag 500 wheels are also there to hit at a more aggressive car beneath the skin.
The black roof looks nice in place, but with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a stellar red interior. This is the factory-correct color, and they have made a solid investment to keep it looking vibrant. You'll even appreciate little details, like the Futura badging on the door and red convertible boot. And they upgraded the radio to a retro-style AM/FM unit and modern speakers to give you better cruising music. In fact, you can really tell this one was made for driving. The front bucket seats, upgraded sports steering wheel, and the Omega Kustom Instruments are all upgrades you're going to love. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
While you've already seen some well-integrated upgrades, the best one is under the hood. Ford's V8s fit nicely in the engine bay of the best Falcons. But while the factory stopped at 289 cubic inches in '64, this one has a clean and fresh-looking 347ci stroker motor. More than just a serious displacement increase, this convertible has been further upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, polished cast valve covers, HEI ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. So this Falcon can really fly, and you get full control of it all thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Plus, the Flowmaster dual exhaust gives a nice hint of the powerful sound without jeopardizing its all-day cruising fun. And this restored classic also has thoughtful driving features like power steering, power brakes, upgraded front discs, and modern sport tires.
This is a very thoughtful restoration of a terrific vintage convertible. Complete classics like this are a rare sight, so don't miss your chance. Call today!!!
