Car description

1963 Falcon Sprint:Distinctive color combination of Corinthian White and Red Crush Vinyl interior. It has the original 260 V8, Built on April 27, 1963 in San Jose CA and delivered to Los Angeles. Theoriginal owner was fromSunnymead, Californiawho kept it until 1986 when it went to Texas. It was originally a 2 speed automatic, and nowhas a 3 speed rebuilt and recently serviced Automatic.The interior isgorgeous andlooks likenew. The red headliner is mint asare the seats, package tray, dash, and trim. The chrome is excellent as is the glass. The duel exhaust is brand new with 2.25" pipe and Magnaflow mufflers. The BF Goodrich tireswithrear 225x70x14's and Magnum 500's give it an excellent aggressive stance.Much has been recently done to the carduring the timeI've owned it: tune-up, wires,new front bumper, fuel pump, oil pressure switch, new balanced drive shaft, oil and filter, front Monroe shocks, ignition switch, and more. The heat works well. The tachometer is original and working, but doesn't appear accurate. The undercarriage is solid and you can tell it is a California car. It's hard to believe it was built in 1963.

The car performs as it should, and is faster than any 260-2 BBLthat I've ever owned.No hesitation, and itis very quick! The power steering is responsive and effortless. There is no squeaking or excess road noise. Highway driving is smooth and really fun. The radio doesn't work, but I have a replacement rebuilt to go in it. Everything lines up nicely. You can be proud of the way it looks, and it gets a ton of compliments at cruise-ins.

Car is sold where-is as-is with no warrantee expressed or implied. I reserve the right to end the auction provided the reserve hasn't been met. Iencourage you to come seeit for yourself or send an appraiser or mechanic prior to bidding. I doubt you'll be disappointed. (I have a 4 speed set up with acompetition Hurst shifter complete with clutch, pedals, cross member, pressure plateetc.-- which can be sold separately but is NOT included in the auction.)
