During Thanksgiving weekend, I shot this video (below) for my dad; featuring his 1963 Ford Falcon Futura.
This car was originally bought by his grandfather, then passed on to his dad; and then to my dad, in 1990. He has only made a few changes from the original 170 CI 2 speed automatic car he received.
The color is Red Fire with white interior and the engine is a 250 CI Inline 6 with stainless steel headers, dual exhaust, electronic ignition, 264/274 -110 Clay Smith cam.
The head is milled .060” ported and polished.
He cut off the log intake and build a custom 4 barrel intake with a 390 CFM Holley carburetor and larger stainless valves. It has a custom handmade polished aluminum cold air induction; as well as an electric fan & fuel pump.
The transmission is an automatic overdrive. It has 8” rear end with 17” wheels.
There is no doubt, this is not only a sharp looking car, but it has the power as well.
Though I’m sure it was a glorious car back in 1963 when it was made, I think it probably turns more heads now; since you don’t regularly see cars like this one on the road anymore; especially not this well-kept.
My dad is the ultimate handyman and car enthusiast. I wish I had half of his skills and abilities when it comes to things like that.
But what I can do is produce videos and put them on YouTube. So between the two of us, we are able to present to the world not only this official video for my dad’s 1963 Ford Falcon Futura; but this blog post as well, featuring these picture collages.
By the way, I love how at the end of the video, the Falcon leaves smoke tracks like the Delorean in Back to the Future.
In case you missed that video, here it is again…
