The Ford Falcon first hit the road in 1960, and was only produced for about ten years. Sales of the Falcon were a huge success at the time, and it was initially offered as both a two-door and four-door sedan, and later as a 5-door station wagon. This 1968 Ford Falcon is part of the third and final generation of this popular model, with square tail lights, a standard heater/defroster, and reminder light for seatbelts (pretty rare, for the time!). Ours is a two-door coupe with stylish sky-blue interior and matching steering wheel.
The Ford Falcon was Ford’s attempt to deliver a smaller, less expensive, and easier to handle car than its predecessors, as the costs of manufacturing the large sedans of the 1950’s began to soar. Many households were also looking to add a second car to the household, and many new drivers were especially put off by the unwieldy bulk of the prior generations of vehicles. While the gas mileage in a classic like this isn’t going to be anything to brag about, its stylish, classic looks more than make up for it. Best of all, this beauty has only logged 35,173 EML miles.
