Description

Vehicle Specs

In late 1963 Ford released it's first unibody 'thin wall” v8 powered vehicle, the Falcon and Futura. This is my 1963 Falcon Sprint. What makes the Sprint model unique is that they were delivered with a 260 cubic inch Windsor V8 and had an available floor mounted 4 speed gearbox which was known as a “top loader”. The body was Ford's first unibody car and featured a swooped “fast back” design with a pillar-less window design.

The only time a V8 option was available in a first-generation Falcon was the 1963½ model, and these cars were produced in very limited numbers (Sprint two-door hardtop (bucket seats) 10,479 produced and Sprint convertible (bucket seats) 4,602 produced). These first-generation Falcon Sprint cars were the basis for the 1964½ Mustangs released by Ford one year later. Many (if not most) of the interior, chassis, suspension, and drivetrain components were derived from those used on the 1963½ Ford Falcon Sprint and/or Fairlane models. In simplest terms, the 1963½ Falcon Sprint is nearly mechanically identical to the 1964½ Mustang, while being aesthetically different.

Great driver that hasn't been fully restored. Factory colors with 1 repaint about 15yrs ago. Exterior and interior show well overall. Undercarriage and engine bay haven't been detailed and are original and solid. The engine has been changed from a 260 to a 289. Come check out this awesome 63.5 Falcon Sprint!
