This Falcon Futura has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
- Exterior: The like-new Corinthian White paint and tasteful graphics
really complement the laser-straight body panels on this Falcon. All of the stainless,
bright work, chrome, etc. is remarkably free of blemishes for the age of the car.
- Interior: The all-business interior features Jaz Pro-High Back
seats with Jaz Racing seat covers, Jaz Floor-Mount 5-point harnesses, Auto Meter
tach and gauges, and B&M Mega Shifter. The dash and dash pad are unmolested
as are the very nice original door panels.
