Jay Leno’s Garage: 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint — 24 Comments

  1. When I was a teenager my best friend had a mint 63 Falcon Futura with a 260 v-8 four speed.The wiring burned up under the dash and he sold it for $100. Sob…

  2. I wish i grew up in the 50′s and 60s just for the cars. And the music too. lol

  3. i thought the same thing. I painted a 70 monte carlo once – white and it had spots like that where primer showed through from not enough paint

  4. Yeah I always thought they were neat little cars too,I saw a nice sporty futura sprint ’64 convertable riding around my town,an older gentleman had it,it was ice clue with a white interior,white top and had wire wheel covers with spinners.A friend of my dad’s had one with a 6 banger and a 4 speed,a hopped up 6banger with a 4bbl and headers and a 4speed,would be cool in one of these.It doesnt really cost alot to hop up a 6banger and when hopped up they do sound and rumble like a V-8

  5. Just watched the 7 Liter video and now this one. I like seeing Jay in these cars more than the creme de la rare exotic creme. How can you not love these old girls? T shirt and jeans down to the Corner store for a snack.. maybe a drag race on the way home… or a detour to your buddies garage. Shoot me an email when you drop a 550 horse 408W in this one dressed in 260 livery… and the accompanying video of your Cobra/Corvette stalking in it.. at 2200lbs as it sits- would be tempting. :)

  6. the front drivers side fender of this car looked a different white than the rest of the car – has Jay bent this car? if so how?

  7. everything was extra on those – maybe thats where the term “ah la carte” came from…I dont know.

  8. The 63 Falcon was my first street rod,I had a blast with it all through high school.

  9. Very nice american car. Not too extravagant as some other american cars from that period.

  10. are these ok for taller drivers ~6’4″ ? i’m not sure as to Jay’s height (heard 5’9-6′ for his height) so not sure how to compare. it looks like a nice balanced package that would be fun to mod and restore

  11. Pity they didn’t release the 2 door sprint here in Aust with the V8. The old man had a 170ci white XL four door – not a bad car in its day. We got the 2 door version in 64 with the XM & later XP with the 6ers up to 200ci. They bring good money these days & have that 60′s classic look. Always prefered the Aust XL front panels to the US version – just looked a bit sharper to me.

  12. Okay, that’s crazy. I’m just about Jay’s age (but look *much* younger…sorry Jay :-) and grew up in Detroit. This car was one of my all-time favorites. Like this body style the best, and it was a handy-sized car, but could still handle a romping small V8 well. And they way this car was done is very close to what I’d envisioned. Really hit me between the eyes. Thanks for giving us a tour!

  13. sides kinda sharp but the front and rear fascia kinda wimpy
    i will take a chevy II any day!!!

  14. Have a look at the current Falcons and masturbate about how good your Mustangs could have been….

  15. My dad had one of these-1963 Ford Falcon Sprint. Awesome car. It never got stuck anywhere and it was easy to fix. It had a beautiful shape and sound. This video brings Wonderful memories. I remember the little side windows would blow fresh air into my face on hot summer nights.
