This 1962 Ford Falcon Futura was originally purchased new from New Jersey by the original owner. The Second owner was an older gentleman from Pennsylvania who owned the car for 30 + years. Unfortunately he as the long-time owner of the car virtually kept no service records at the time. He then sold the car being unable to drive it any longer, to a dealer in Florida. The dealer then sold the car to a man in Texas, who owned the car briefly. As I just missed the sale of this car and had to have it, I convinced him to immediately re-sell the car to me, and he never even had the chance to transfer the car to his name, it went directly into mine. I purchased the Ford Falcon Futura from him.
The car is mostly Original, some things have been replaced but everything kept completely Stock and factory correct.
-The radiator was recorded rather than replaced to save it as the original, as well as new rad lines were installed -The points and condenser were changed to electronic in the distributer, as well as a new coil was installed -The gas tank was replaced as well as the gas tank sending unit and fuel pump -New front shoes, cylinders, flex lines and hold down kits were installed -New rear shoes, cylinders and hold down kits were installed -Front and Rear emergency cables were replaced -The carb was rebuilt and a new choke was installed -The upper ball joints were replaced -A new ignition switch along with the corresponding key was installed -The horn contact brush was replaced as it was non-functioning, the horn now functions -The original Gauge cluster was incorrectly painted with some gold accents around the gauges (photo-graphed and comes with the car), It was not factory correct so I replaced the gauge cluster with an original one. The car now reads 94,850 but its actual mileage is 105,200. The gauge cluster was changed just last month and I have driven the car a mere 4 miles since.
This Ford Falcon is a rarer Up-market Futura model. In place of a bench seat, it features twin bucket seats with the centre console. The Futura model features factory installed safety-belts, Futura Script across the rear and sides of the car, as well as the Futura- specific Front louvered side trim, that then runs the length of the car. The car was repainted in its Original colour of Sandshell Beige by the long time owner in Pennsylvania, a Futura only available color to my knowledge. As to why ? it is a 50+ year old car he must of decided it was time. The Interior is all Original. This car features the rare option of rear reverse lights as well. The car retains its Numbers matching Engine, transmission and rear end. The car also retains all of its Original window Glass.
With a 50+ year old car, She will undoubtedly have some flaws that show her age. I listed the ones below, trying to be as transparent as possible.
-The front windshield has windshield wiper scratches (photo-graphed) -The front bumper, passenger side has been slightly pushed in. The fender has a crack in it up alongside the headlight assembly (photo-graphed) -The radio does not function -The parcel tray (shelf below the rear window) is no longer covered by its factory vinyl, and is now painted. -The Front fender, passenger side has 2 cracks in the paint (photo-graphed) -Drivers seat has some wear (photo-graphed)
No major areas of concern. (for rust)
I'm selling the car because since I purchased it 5 years ago I've only had the opportunity to drive on a few occasions as I now have too many vehicles collected. This car deserves to be on the road and enjoyed where its happiest at, and I'm simply not doing the car the privilege it deserves. This 1962 Ford Falcon Futura is a good " Honest " driver's quality car.
