Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With a great-looking hardtop profile, enhanced V8 power, and a carefully done restoration, this 1965 Ford Falcon Futura shows that it delivers the right features you really want in a cool cruiser.
This may have been the debut year for the Mustang, but the Falcon in premium Futura trim was really stealing some of the thunder from its close sibling. After all, a pillarless hardtop version like this has a steeper rake in the rear that adds some very sporty style. And the full-length trim with white insert looks like a sharp arrow pushing this coupe forward. Plus, details like the front overhang and afterburner-style tail lights made the whole package quite stylish. What also makes this one particularly appealing is that it received a full restoration about 15 years ago. It has been in the hands of the restorer ever since, and so it continues to show good care. You see this respect in the details like the bright chrome bumpers, good body gap, and clean glass. And the Vintage Burgundy paint has a good shine of a car that has seen less time on the road and more in garage care. There was even some upgraded power added when this coupe was restored, and the design hints at it with the GT wheel covers and dual exhaust tips.
Inside, you can see there was a nice investment in the right fundamentals during the restoration. It includes comfy wide bench seats, nice door panels, a taut headliner, and a smooth dash pad. The added care shows in the little things like the dome light, horn, and AM radio all working. Even the brightwork was sent out to get it reconditioned. It\'s all quite vintage, and so the auxiliary readouts installed under the dash are the largest upgrade you\'re likely to notice. And they signal that this is a coupe that was made for driving.
Another great parallel to the Mustang is that the \'65 Falcon was available with the mighty 289 cubic-inch V8. Since this is a C-code coupe, we\'re especially glad to still have the proper V8 under the hood. There is a clean look that reminds you of both the investment and care in this Falcon. Plus, you have a stronger powerhouse with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. It\'s a strong runner, and we like how it has a vintage feeling in the way it drives. But with front disc brakes, modern tires, and smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, this makes sure it feels like a proper cruiser, too.
Complete with the owner\'s manual, this is the restored Falcon hardtop that really likes to offer the style and substance of a driver\'s classic. So don\'t miss this deal, call today!
