Ford Falcon Futura 1967




I bought this car back in August 1990. The car was imported to Norway in August/September 1968. In the autumn 1995 I was about to sell it, but my brother bought a part of it. The car is a 1967 Ford Falcon Futura, 2 door club coupe. There were only produced 6287 of this model this year. It originally had a 6 cylinder engine. Around 1985 the car was modified and rebuilt. Then it was equipped with a modified 289" engine, FMX Faibanks automatic transmission and 9" rear axle (3.89:1) with Detroit Locker. The frontsuspension was modified with parts from a 1970 Torino.

Today the car is still much the same. The transmission and converter have been rebuilt and the engine has been modified a little bit further and is now under rebuilding. The car is getting a power steering and the brakes are being checked.

The inside of the car is almost original. The carpet is replaced and some instruments are installed. It also has a tacho-meter on the hood.

October 2001, Jon, who modified and rebuilt this car back in around 1985, bought it back. It was a bit strange to sell this car after so many years. Hopefully the car will be back on the road again soon.

August 2002. The Falcon is now on the road again. The transmission is changed to 4-speed manual, and the steering is still manual. The picture below, is taken outside a big Mustang show at Tyrigrava, 17. August 2002.
