A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.
While the Mustang went on to achieve “American icon” status, the Falcon managed to cultivate its own dedicated following of fans. Today, Falcon’s are attainable, affordable, and an ideal choice for street and strip build-ups alike. In fact, the Falcon achieved near-iconic status itself when presented as an old-style, straight-axle gasser vehicle.
While not in gasser trim, this 1965 Falcon Futura, which we spotted at Summit Racing’s Ohio store, is a nice example of the Falcon’s potential. The ’65 model year gave us our favorite combination of body lines and trim, and this Futura packs a 289-cubic-inch engine–plenty potent for the Falcon’s lightweight, compact design.
