We like the contrasting two-tone, blue-and white interior. The high-back bucket seats with headrests give the interior an expensive look you don't expect to see in the economy-minded Falcon. The interior also has a racy feel imparted by the Hurst T-handle shifter, fire extinguisher, and Billet Specialties steering wheel.
