The Falcon finally received a convertible version for 1963 in three levels of trim—Futura, Futura Sport, and Futura Sprint. The Sprint, which included Falcon’s first V-8 engine, arrived mid-year. As the fanciest of Falcons, Futuras included a chrome horn ring; rear armrests and ashtrays; two horns; Futura wheel covers in place of the standard hubcaps; a Futura logo on the “C-pillar” (on coupes); chrome side-window, windshield, and rear-window moldings; a horizontal chrome strip between the taillights; and a horizontal arrow-style chrome strip on the bodyside. Sport versions added wire wheel covers as well as bucket seats with a center console.

Ford built 18,942 six-passenger (bench-seat) Falcon Futura convertibles and 12,250 five-passenger (bucket-seat) Falcon Futura Sport convertibles for the model year. This example is equipped with the optional 101 hp, 170 cu. in. inline six-cylinder engine and Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission. Base Futura convertibles were priced at $2,470, while the fancier Sports were priced at $2,591 before options.

Finished in Rangoon Red with a matching red vinyl interior and white convertible top, this Lorain, Ohio–built convertible has been the beneficiary of an exacting restoration to original. It received its AACA First Junior award in 1992, along with its Senior and 1st Preservation awards later that year, a 1st Grand National Award in 1994, and a Senior Grand National Award in 1996. It has won 19 Repeat Preservation awards through and including 2009 and was featured in Legendary Ford Magazine in January 2008.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf19.
