Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With its V8 power, four-on-the-floor, perfect color combination, and crisply restored condition, it's hard to beat this 1963 Ford Falcon Futura convertible for vintage top-down fun. And when you see the upgrades - from the stroker motor to the A/C interior - you'll realize how irresistible this classic really is.
A Ford Falcon in its range-topping Furura trim seems to strike a nice balance of premium and sporty offered in a right size package. This restored convertible has plenty of brightwork, including beautiful chrome bumpers, intricate grille, dual gunsight fender ornaments, and the afterburner-style tail lamps. And we especially love the arrow-like Futura side trim that seems to keep this convertible pointing forward. All of this shows exceptionally well against a recent professional application of the factory-correct Corinthian White. It has a modern clearcoat luster that look great in the sunshine...exactly what you want on a convertible. And while these are all terrifically correct pieces, there are some nice subtle upgrades. The half-chrome headlights and Mustang styled steel wheels hint at this droptop's performance upgrade.
The white roof looks nice in place, but with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a stellar red interior. Not only is this a terrific color against the white exterior, but also all the red exterior accents (including within the side trim and hood scoop) make this look like a highly coordinated package with the roof down. More than just a great color, they made some very cool investments in this Falcon. The seats are the rare split-bench w/armrest with a design inspired by the first years of the Ford Mustang. As you look across the dash, everything is correctly in place, right down to the classic grippy steering wheel. But then you also spot some more upgrades like retro-style AM/FM radio with digital tuner, and there's a modern R134a air conditioning system to keep you cool with the top down long into the summer season.
While you've already seen some well-integrated upgrades, the best one is under the hood. Ford's V8 fit nicely under the hood of the best Falcons. But while the factory stopped at 260 cubic-inches, this one has a fresh 331ci stroker motor. More than just a serious displacement increase, this convertible has been further upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer 2.0 intake. So this Falcon can really fly, and you get full control of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the dual exhaust gives a nice hint of the power sound without jeopardizing its all-day cruising fun. And this restored classic also has thoughtful driving features like power steering and power brakes with front discs. There's even aluminum radiator to help keep you running cool even in traffic with the A/C pumping.
Complete with owner's manual, 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!!!
