Some major and historic changes were in store for the 1963 Falcons. A new sporty convertible model was introduced, and mid-year 63 ½ models were later introduced including the popular Sprint hardtops and convertibles.
The two new Futura Convertibles (one with bucket seats, the other with bench) were introduced at the beginning of the 1963 model year on September 28, 1962. Did you know that a 4-door Futura convertible was proposed? A prototype was built, but never produced by Ford.
The hot new Sprints included the first V-8s to ever appear in a production Falcon. The V-8 had 260 cubic inches and 164 horsepower. The new V-8 was available not only in Sprints, but also available in other 63 ½ Falcon models.
