1964 Falcon Futura

Good news for compact hardtop and convertible fans comes in packages marked “Falcon Futura.” Sports Coupe and Sports Convertible with bucket seats, Futura Hardtop and Futura Convertible with full-width seats, as you please. They’ll pamper you with leather-soft vinyl trim (10 color-keyed choices), full carpeting, Thunderbird “floating” mirror, courtesy-lighted interior . . . all the luxuries. Convertible tops are power-operated for ease; 5-ply design for durability; anchored at each roof bow for a sleek profile under way. True to the Falcon formula, Futura Hardtops and Convertibles have their thrifty, practical side, too. The Falcon Six (in hardtops) is a famous gas-saver. It set the all-time Mobil Economy Run record for 6’s or 8’s in 1961. The 170 Special Six (std. in convertibles; opt. in hardtops) packs a heftier power punch, is second in gas savings only to the Falcon Six. Add in Ford’s renowned Twice-a-Year (or 6,000-mile) Maintenance features – every one from 36,000 miles or 3 years between major chassis lubes to self-adjusting brakes – and you can see how these Futuras can put a lot more fun in your kind of driving.
