1965 Falcon Futura Fordor

One of the nicest things about Futura finery is that it doesn’t carry a fancy price tag. Along with all their extra allure, Futuras offer big helpings of extra value as well … all at a low compact price.

Anyone for a convertible or a hardtop? Just give a look! And special models aren’t the only Futura specialty. Not by a long shot. Glance over the equipment list on the preceding page and notice all the extras. Plush carpeting throughout, for example. Courtesy lights. A special, dressy instrument panel. Twice as many upholstery choices. Special exterior trim and identification. They’re all part of Futura’s extra value.

And for the action-minded, there’s a very special option available with Futura hardtops and convertibles — the Sprint Package. It includes bucket seats, a 200-hp V-8 engine, and it’s identified by Sprint nameplates on the front fenders.

Plenty of other options are available to make driving more pleasurable. Power brakes, power steering, fully synchronized 4-speed manual or Cruise-O-Matic transmission, 14-inch tires, even air conditioning. And that’s just a starter.

Needless to say, Futuras offer all the regular Falcon advantages—the basic economy, the trim exterior dimensions, the roominess for six, the road-softening ride, and Ford’s Twice-a-Year Maintenance features. Come to think of it, there’s hardly anything a Futura doesn’t offer . . . except a high price.
