Description:

1968 Ford Falcon

I am selling my 1968 Ford Falcon Futura
I am reducing my car collection and I am offering this car for sale. This is a great car with a lot of power from the 289 CI V8, it is a real sleeper!
This car is in good used condition with some wear and small dents / scrapes as shown in the photographs. While the car was apparently repainted sometime in it's past, it has aged and it has been damaged in various locations over time. Additionally, the roof has some creases from someone overloading it. The creases are only noticeable when you are closer to the car.
The car was purchased new in Hartford, CT., and sometime in the mid eighties, was added to the collection of the original owner's nephew. I purchased the vehicle from his collection. The car shows 37,670 miles, which was represented as original to me when I purchased the vehicle, and the title reflects this as well.
After I acquired the car, I changed the fuel tank as the original was gummed up, the carburetor was cleaned and a kit was installed, and the fuel pump replaced. A new heater core was installed and the carpet was replaced as the heater core had leaked on the original carpet. The wheel and master brake cylinders were replaced as well as the brake hoses. The fog lights were disconnected.
I have included the maximum number of photographs that are allowed. I can always take more if necessary.
I have included the links to two videos, one where the car is being started with a walk around and the second showing a short ride.
I believe that everything works, however, the radio has interference from the ignition and requires a filter.
This is the video of the car starting and a walk around of the car while running, please note the condition of the various aspects of the car.

The next video was taken during a short drive to give you a sense of how quiet and smooth the car drives.

While I believe that the car is very nice, any prospective buyer must rely on their own judgement as to the condition of the car. Inspections are encouraged and welcomed before bidding. The car is being sold in "AS IS, WHERE IS" condition. As of today, I have noticed some noise in the water pump and I am including a new one with the car.
If you decide to purchase the car, I am requiring a $400 non-refundable deposit within 48hours of the listing end. I am also requiring full payment within 4 business days (even though the ebay default shows 3 days). Cash or wire transfer is preferred, however, if you wish to pay with any kind of Cashiers check, the car and title will not be released until the check has cleared at my bank. I will only accept Paypal for the deposit.
The car must be removed from the premises within 15 business days, after payment clears my bank.I am sensitive to shipping issues and timing.If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact me to discuss.
I am happy to answer any questions that you may have. If you wish to speak with me regarding the car, please contact me through e-bay and supply your telephone number. I will call you back.
Thank you for looking and have a great day.
