Re: 63 falcon futura hdtp
289's were not used in the Falcon until the end on the 1964 model year, I believe due to a shortage of 260's. 1965 was the first full year of the 289 with the 6 bolt bell housing.
Falcon never came out with a "factory" hi-po motor, except the 1970.5 model where you could get anything that the Torino had available. I do know that the 4v was available on some 1965 models, these were of the "utility line, Ranchero, Sedan Delivery, and the Station Wagons that were 289 equipped.
A lot of people are under the assumption that the "Sprint" package was a performance package, whereas it was only an "upper trim" package.
Dual exhaust was not included in any factory packages, except for the 1970.5 model.
I am sure that some of my info may be questioned by fellow members, but without doing any further research, this should be pretty close.
Canada did release a few "Performance Models" in either 1964 or 1965, but these were very few and only in Canada, not the USofA.
