Straight-6 Slushbox: 1963 Ford Falcon Convertible

I’m gonna put my flame suit on and say the following: the V8 and 4-speed is overrated. Every other classic ’60s American car that I see running around car shows is powered by a thumping V8 and many have the lauded 4-speed manual. Oooohh…ahhh…pssshaa, meh!  Those hot rod upgraded powertrain combos are great if you plan to go vintage racing or like to head to the drag strip, but most classic cars are just putted around town by old guys, so why not get something that’ll get good fuel economy and isn’t as common as pimples on a teenager.  Like a straight-6 mated to a..errr..2 or 3…let’s just say several speed slushbox. Find this 1963 Ford Falcon Convertible offered for $15000 in Port Orchard, WA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

I am selling my 1963 Falcon convertible for $15,000. It is an automatic with the 170 six cylinder engine. It runs great. The interior upholstery was completely redone in 2015 so it looks real good. You can for an appt. to look and/or drive.
