Ric 1964 futura

I am working on my 1964 falcon futura sedan 2 door. Has a 200 six cyl engine and a c4 transmission. Has been touched up but never been had a new paint job. New seat covers and carpets with smoothie wheels and white walls. I have been trying to stay as close to stock as I can but making a few upgrades here and there.

Looks gorgeous. They are only original once so nice work on preservation.

I hope one of the upgrades would be a conversion to a Dual Master Cylinder. Many of us in the club stand behind that improvement.

Nice car! Love the original look as well. I generally enjoy just enough update to get as safe as you can without removing the radiator cap and driving a new car underneath it. Every Falcon is cool though, no matter what is done to it.

Ric 1964 futura

Great looking car. I am the old dude who can't leave the Falcons stock. Mine looks pretty stock from the outside, except for the wheels. Keep on sending pics. Love it. Larry

upgrades

I haven't made many upgrades but I did put in a newer 200 6cyl engine and a c4 transmission. Moved up a notch to 14 inch wheels , added a 2 stage master cylinder for the brakes , went to a 3 core radiator , installed an electronic ignition , have a heavier anti sway bar in the front put in a new interior.
