After owning this poor decrepit convertible Futura for 20 years, I'm finally fixing it up. If you choose to follow, you're welcome to the resurrection of my 1963 Falcon from January 2nd, 2020 to when I get it on the road. Since this is a garden variety convertible, I can make my mods to it without hacking a really rare car. Like every story about a car, it starts as a complete car. She was made on All Fools Day in the year 1963. She was Corinthian White with a red standard interior and white top. A buck seventy engine with a 3 on the tree and buckets seats with the console rolling out of Lorain, Ohio.
My plans are to do a moderate update on the car, 302 V8 with a 5 speed and a 9 inch rear. I'm going with the '65 power steering, linkage and disc brakes. It's a typical midwestern car with some fairly amateur work done by brazing and welding in sheet metal patch pieces. The rest was held together by slathering tar and some kind of mesh to it.
