The Falcon finally received a convertible version for 1963 in three levels of trim—Futura, Futura Sport, and Futura Sprint. The Sprint, which included Falcon's first V-8 engine, arrived mid-year. As the fanciest of Falcons, Futuras included a chrome horn ring; rear armrests and ashtrays; two horns; Futura wheel covers in place of the standard hubcaps; a Futura logo on the “C-pillar” (on coupes); chrome side-window, windshield, and rear-window moldings; a horizontal chrome strip between the taillights; and a horizontal arrow-style chrome strip on the bodyside. Sport versions added wire wheel covers as well as bucket seats with a center console.

Ford built 18,942 six-passenger (bench-seat) Falcon Futura convertibles and 12,250 five-passenger (bucket-seat) Falcon Futura Sport convertibles for the model year. This example is equipped with the optional 260 cu. in. V-8 engine and Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission. Base Futura convertibles were priced at $2,470, while the fancier Sports were priced at $2,591 before options.

Repainted in its originally optioned Raven Black paint with matching red vinyl interior and white convertible top, this Lorain, Ohio–built convertible is quite the tits.
