Ford Falcon 302 V8 1965

General description : BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED SPRINT, ROLLER 302 V8, T5 5 SPD, WILWOOD 4 WHL DISCS, A+

This custom 1965 Ford Falcon Futura Sprint is nothing but great surprises from every angle. Exceptionally shiny on the outside, amazingly plush on the inside, and a thumping 302 V8 with a five-speed under the hood just scratches the surface one this terrific and speedy custom-built classic.
These second-generation Falcons seemed to strike a nice balance between American flair and European sensibilities, and this one really turns it up a notch. It starts with an excellent recent application of British Racing Green Mica borrowed from modern Jaguars. Of course, those black racing stripes on the hood are pure American flair. And that custom set of scoops on the fiberglass hood makes this one look like its much bigger brother – the race-bred R-code Ford Fairlane. There's plenty of great 60s-style chrome on the grille and bumpers, but brightwork that everyone will really be taking a look at are the addition of side pipes (another indication that this is a serious street machine.) Of course, these Futuras always looked fast stinging still thanks to the design that incorporates the full-length accent line. It gives this hardtop the appeal of an arrow cutting through the wind. And with all this attractiveness, don't forget that the 1965 Falcon is also a difficult car to find. The Ford Mustang production was in full swing by the time this car came around. Consequently, Ford only sold about 2,800 of these premium Futura Sprint hardtop coupes that year.
The moment you peek inside of this hardtop, you know they made all the right investments in the interior. After all, those front bucket seats with comfortable cloth inserts are a full custom integration. And not only do they have the kind of modern bolstering to be all-day comfortable, but also yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. All the right vintage pieces are in place, and so you get the ultra-wide speedometer, plenty of bright trim, and even the AM radio is still on display. Oh yes, that's a CB you've spotted under the dash, too. But what you'll really love is how this is a true driver's machine. The sports steering wheel is grippy, the Hurst shifter is calling out for your right hand, and the important tach is front and center on the dash.
You can instantly tell the engine bay was built for performance. The extra tidy setup gives you a clear view at the 302 cubic-inch V8. It has been enhanced and fortified with Scorpion roller rockers, Ford Motorsports E303 camshaft, AFR Renegade aluminum heads, Ford Racing cast valve covers, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding those growling side pipes. This monster motor has all the right supporting components – from the full bracing kit to the aluminum radiator that keeps it all running cool. You have full control over this monster motor and its thunderous soundtrack thank to the upgrade to a T5 five-speed manual transmission that's been reinforced with Ford Motorsports clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel. This feeds a stout Ford 8-inch rear running versatile 3.50 gears. And because all this power is nothing without control, you have great features like traction bars, sways bars front & rear, and slotted & vented Wilwood disc brakes behind each one of those polished slotted mag wheels.
This is a serious custom build. We have the receipts and photos to prove it, but all you really have to do is look at the amazingly clean undercarriage to understand the level of detail that went into making this unique coupe. This is the powerful, distinct, and rare classic you've been waiting for. Don't miss your chance, call today!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
