Futura Convertible in Corinthian White. Soft-top lovers have been asking for this one—and here it is, brand-new for ’63. Neat-stowing automatic top opens new vistas of Falcon frolicking—and on a budget, to boot. $2470*
What else is new? Falcon convertibles, that’s what. And these are no “do-it-yourself” models, either. Tops are automatic, like convertible tops should be, and they snug down almost flat when folded. There’s a choice of 5 interiors upholstered in bright vinyl that laugh at weather and wear. The Futura Convertible, shown above, is for top-down fun at a down-to-earth price. The Futura Sports Convertible, below, is a bucket seat job with glamour galore. Falcon’s big 170 Six (101 hp) is standard on both; a Challenger V-8 is also available. What a lively way to live it up!
