Wheels in the Grass

1965 Falcon Futura, Niagara Falls, N.Y.

Sparkle, spirit and savings — that’s how Ford described the 1965 Falcon Futura (grammatical error and all) in its brochure. When the Futura was introduced for 1961 it was  a specially equipped two-door sedan only. It evolved into a series for the 1963 model year, where it was replaced at the top of the Falcon heap by the sporty Futura Sprint — which was a great idea for about a year until the Mustang came along. This Futura, sitting under a makeshift carport in Niagara Falls, N.Y., looks like it may be undergoing a restoration. It cost around $2,337 plus options when it was new, and almost 26,000 were produced.
