The second generation 1964 Falcon, launched in 1963, featured revised, more squared-off styling. Later in the 1964 model year, Ford's new offering for that market was launched: the Ford Mustang, based heavily on the Falcon's unified frame design. TV commercials now used the character Hazel as well as the Peanuts cartoon characters. The Ford Motor Company was a sponsor of the show, and also sponsored The Ford Show during the late 1950s. For the 1964 year, Ford added a Sprint Package, which gave the Falcon the Fairlane's 260 V8, a stiffer suspension, and a louder exhaust. Because the Mustang had the same options that the Sprint had for only a small amount more, the Sprint never caught on. Even with the addition of the 289 V8 in late 1964, the Sprint was overshadowed by the Mustang, and was discontinued after 1965. The Mustang dealt Falcon sales in North America a blow from which they would never recover. Front suspension was coil springs pivot-mounted on upper arms plus double-acting shock absorbers..
The 1964 Ford Falcon Futura V8 offered here is a recent import from the US. The car is described as a restoration project which starts, runs and drives. The car comes with completed Nova and UK registration applied for. The car benefits from power steering, Front disc brake conversion, chrome smoothie wheels and is an original V8 version. The Futura is the two door model with the steeper angled rear roof section and this is the rarer bench seat and V8 example.
