Thanks for your question.
Yes, you are entitled to be registered as a British Citizen if you were born before 1983 outside of the UK but to a father who was born in the UK (British Nationality Act 1981. Suffice it to say you will have to prove that your father was a British citizen and that you were born before 1983, though I do not imagine that will be too much of a problem.
You will have to apply to be registered as such by submitted Form B(OS) to the UKBA,
available for download from the UKBA's website.
If you decide to apply for a passport after having been registered you should check whether the Country which you presently hold a passport permits you to hold dual passsports. If this is the US then I believe they do.
