Car: Ford Falcon Sprint Convertible
What makes it special: Produced for model years 1960 to 1970, Ford’s Falcon spanned three generations. It was available in two and four-door sedans, two- and four-door wagons, a two-door hardtop, convertible, paneled sedan delivery and Ranchero pick-up.
What made it famous: For the 1963 model year, Falcon had even more models available to buyers. Joining the line-up were a four-door Futura and Deluxe wagon, Futura convertible and Futura sports convertible models, and eventually the Sprint model was introduced later that year. Halfway through the 1963 model year the Fairlane’s 164hp, “Challenger” 260 cu in V8 became available for the Falcon.
Why I would want one: I am a fan of all things Ford Falcon. I want them all. All years, all styles.
Fun fact: For years, the Falcon name was also used on passenger versions of the Ford Econoline van.
