Very Very nice! Really good price.

I have wanted one of these for awhile, just can't pull the trigger. The wife has not worked for 16 months. Keeping things simple for now.

For Sale: 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint

Thanks guys. I also uploaded the word document listing all the details. Turns out I couldn't upload the original document since it was a ".docx" file. Thanks MS Vista. Okay so the details are attached.

Hopefully someone will be interested. Tell your friends. It's a good little car. Lots of looks!

You have some pictures with a 289 tri power and some as a 260 4V. Which one is it.

For Sale: 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint

Good question. The 1963 289 with tripower is available for an additional price hence the photo of it on the stand. Details on the 289 are in the attached word document earlier in the thread.

The car itself possesses the original 260 w/original 2V. I didn't install the 289 since I switched my attention to a FFR Cobra so there it sits on the stand.

Ron, maybe fate could be your friend. The seller is interested in my car and may be coming up this way with a trailer to pick up my car one day. Wouldn't it be convenient if he brings you up his sprint and picks up my ffr .

Talking For Sale: 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint 4 spd

Thanks for posting the larger photos! I'm not much of a "techy."

I realized how small the photos were after posting them. I added the link to my flickr account so everyone could have a better look at the car.

Anyone interested should see: Flickr: polargoat98's Photostream

Once on the link, click on each photo for a better look. Also since it was mentioned earlier in the thread, the 1963 289 tripower in the link photos is NOT in the car but is available for purchase if interested. Even has the large main caps like the Hipo 289.

Nice car and a lot of fun. Thanks again, ~Eric

Car is posted on Classic Cars For Sale. I have included some photos of the underside and a short video (quality not great but you'll get the idea) in my link. You will notice that I am asking less for the car on the FFR forum. Here's the link again.

A lot o memories

My first car was a 63 Comet Spint two door with the same roof line and a 260 with a 4 speed. The shifter had a real locking reverse tee and the same shifter that comes with our kits. If it wasn't for the work I did on my Comet I probably would not be building my Cobra Now.. That's good looking Falcon... Good luck on your new endeavor... JJ
