In January 1963 the Ford Motor Company introduced the Falcon Hardtop model. Being that they were only made after January they were designated 1/2 year models. Thus the 1963 1/2 Falcon Futura Hardtop was born. The slanted windshield and rear window gave this model a crisp new look. The term Hardtop came from the 50's cars called Hardtop Convertibles which meant that there was no post between the front and rear windows and no frame around the door windows.

From the first Falcon introduced in the 1960 model year all Falcons were Sedan or Station Wagons, and in 1961 they added the Ranchero model. Most had a 144 CID 6 cylinder motor with only 85 horsepower. Falcons were available with a 170 CID 6 cylinder that produced 101 horsepower and added some zip to somewhat powerless 144 CID models. Most Falcons came with a two speed automatic transmission standard, but a 3 speed manual transmissions was also available.

The 63 1/2 Futura Hardtop was Falcons first entry into the sporty car market. They were available with padded dash, back-up lights, and stainless steel rocker moldings. The Sport Coupe model offered bucket seats and a console, along with carpets on the floor. Also in January of 1963 Falcon introduced the 260 CID V8 motors in the Futura models that produced 164 horsepower to the wheels. This added some performance to the sporty look, and Falcon introduced the model called the Sprint that only came with 260 V8 motors. Dual exhausts, a wood grain steering wheel, a tachometer, and some chrome under the hood were also added to the Sprint models.

All Falcons sporty look disappeared at the end of the 1965 model year and the Falcon returned to its roots of producing only Sedans and Station Wagons until the end of the 1970 model year when the last Falcons were produced. The 2 1/2 years that Hardtops and Convertibles were produced has became the choice models for Falcon lovers to own and restore.
