Front and rear views of a very cool half-year introduction pillarless hardtop version of the first generation Ford Falcon.
Once in a while I jump from my favored $1.19 car of the week, all the way up to $9.99. I bought this 1:18 scale 1963 1/2 Ford Falcon Sprint hardtop last fall at a clearance-type place. I paid $9.99 and I'm pretty sure it's more like $25.00 model. Even at that it's certainly no Franklin Mint-type model, but is really well-proportioned and a fairly rare car in real life. It's badged as a Futura, no Sprint nameplate at all. I thought all '63 1/2 hardtops were Sprints, but perhaps only those with V8s were badged that way. This model has a 170 cid I6, one of Ford's mainstays in that period.
