This 1963 Ford Falcon Futura hails from Ford’s “could do no wrong (almost)” era. Back in the early-to-mid 1960s many of the Blue Oval’s new car introductions were followed by sales in the middle six figures (over 435,000 1960 Falcons; almost 300,000 1962 Fairlanes; and, the grand daddy of ‘em all, 680,889 1965 Mustangs). The ’63 Falcons were the first to offer convertible models (a two-door hardtop followed for 1963-1/2). Equipped with the 289 V-8 and a four-on-the-floor, these Falcons were quite the little performers — until the Mustang pulled the rug out from under them a year later. Saw this blue convertible a couple of weeks back in Hamburg. (Look closely and you’ll also see a Falcon Ranchero off to the left.)
