YAK Car Pic of the Day

'65 Falcon Futura, Irving, N.Y.

Spotted this 1965 Ford Falcon Futura down in Irving back when the weather was a bit warmer. Looks like it’s in pretty good shape, apart from those weird white spoked wheels and a bit of spray-can primer in the door/front fender area. The badge just ahead of the front tire would indicate there’s a 289 cid V-8 under the hood. This one looks like it’s wearing its original Virginia tags, which may explain the condition of the body.

    The 289 Widsor V8 was also in the ’65 Mustang. It was a pretty good mill for that size car. I had white spoked wheels on my 1990 Toyota pick up. The body & cap were wite so it added tothe theme, but it sure does not cut it on this ol’ Ford. Maybe somebody will give it a good home.

    I had those same rims on my ’75 Econoline, which I’ll be featuring a photo of here soon. And a 351 cid w/three-on-the-tree.
