More Details & Pictures

This solid, tight and right Falcon Futura is one of about 11,000 built in 1962. The first part of the year the Futuras had the regular Falcon 2 door roof line, but mid-year they were built like mine with the T-bird style top.

Originally purchased by an elderly teacher in Zanesville, Ohio, she gave it to her groundskeeper in 1965. He kept it one year and sold it to his brother in 1966 and the brother owned in from 1966 to 2001! 35 years! I have all the owner records and shortly after purchasing it in April, 2004, I contacted the long term owner’s widow and she asked me to drive it to her home in Summerfield, Ohio so she could see it once again. Her daughter from the Carolina’s was there and she cried “My daddy used to take me to school in that car!” I drove her and mom all over the area and have pictures of them!

It is a rare Sandshell Beige color with the two tone tan bucket seat interior. It is equipped with the 170ci 6, Ford-O-Matic, radio, heater, back up lights and dual side mirrors. No tinted glass, no electric wipers or washers or any other options. Unusual!

All I had to do upon my purchase was to have the hood repainted and both front seats re-upholstered with the original material and install seat belts.

I have an outstanding mechanic who services it every 3,000 miles…about once a year. Minor scratches around the driver’s door lock, the usual Falcon “rash” on both interior upper door panels and the interior upholstery door surround on the driver’s side needs replacing.

I have put 33,000 miles on her….from 64,254 to 97,223. Never failed me, smooth, quiet, tight and right…..uses no oil, no leaks, the one tiny rust spot on the bottom of the right front fender has not changed a bit in the 13 years I have had it and enjoyed it. We drive it 265 miles to our cottage up north…….240 miles to our grand kids in Cincinnati….just absolutely as reliable and enjoyable as an old car can be.

A custom California Car Cover is included, as is a shop manual, the owner’s manual, the heater cardboard instructions and several pieces of original literature, including a salesman info sheet.

Please call with questions and come see it anytime you would like. 1-517-605-2148.

You will not be disappointed!
