1960 Ford Falcon

1960 Ford Falcon

Introduced in 1960 as a contribution to the compact car market. The falcon styling was simple and was almost three feet shorter than the full sized Fords! It was a uncomplicated little car that was available in two-door and four-door sedans, and station wagons. They looked definitely like a Ford due to it's styling but remained simple and attractive. The Falcon had a 90-hp 144 cu. in. engine and for a transmission you could have the standard three-speed Synchromesh manual or the optional two-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission.
