Cruising in Style: ’63½ Ford Falcon Sprint Hardtop 302 4-Speed Build, 350Hp V8 Sweet Sound
The Ford Falcon debuted in 1960 as a small automobile built to compete with other vehicles in its class, including the Chevrolet Corvair and the Plymouth Valiant. The Falcon has proven to be a popular automobile among drivers who enjoy its dependable performance and fuel efficiency over the years.
When it officially entered the market, the 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint Hardtop had a 260 V8 engine. The car we’re talking about today now sports a more powerful 302 engine. Aluminum heads, an aluminum intake, and a street performance cam are fitted to the 302 engine. The engine’s output is increased to an astonishing 350 horsepower as a result of these changes. The engine is mated to the original T-10 four-speed gearbox, resulting in an exciting driving experience.
The brilliant Guards Red paint job on this Falcon Sprint Hardtop is one of the first things that draws the eye. This color was not offered as a factory option in 1963, but it looks great on the car. The car rides on 14-inch Supreme Wheels, which offer a touch of modern elegance while keeping the Falcon’s traditional appearance.
The Falcon Sprint Hardtop has a three-tone original interior that is in outstanding shape on the inside. The seats, door panels, and dashboard are all different hues of red, white, and black, giving the vehicle a striking and elegant appearance. The car also has a factory radio and heater, which contribute to the interior’s comfort and convenience.
The 302 engine starts with a loud roar that can be heard for blocks. The suspension and brakes have also been updated to accommodate the greater power, making the car a pleasure to drive on the road.
