I'm afraid your question is rather tangential to version control
systems.  VCS allow you to maintain history of your project, they are
not deployment solutions.  So, if you need to use FTP, then fine, go
ahead, use any VCS you like to maintain your project and once you're
fine with certain version of your project, just upload it using FTP.

The only problem with this is you might get inconveniences if you do
certain fixups on the uploaded version of the code and assets: it will
require you to fetch them back and commit to your VCS locally.
You already have this problem though, just using a VCS adds another
moving part to it.

Note that there's another approach to deployment.  While VCS, as
already mentioned, is not a deployment solution, neither is FTP, and if
you're using VPS/physical server to host your websites, you might as
well install Git there and send changes to your websites using Git
alone.  This also solves the problem of getting fixups done on the
server back to the developer's box.
