1960-1970 FORD FALCON PERFORMANCE PORTFOLIO

THIS IS MUST HAVE BOOK FOR ANY 1960-1970 FALCON FAN. THIS IS A NEW BOOK WITH 140 PAGES.

THE 1960S WERE A DECADE OF RECOVERY FOR FORD, WHEN THE COMPANY MOVED FROM A MAKER OF MUNDANE PEOPLE-CARRIERS TO A MAKER OF DESIRABLE CARS. AMONG THE RANGES WHICH ACHIEVED THIS TRANSFORMATION WAS THE FALCON, INTRODUCED AS A COMPACT LINE TO COMBAT EUROPEAN IMPORTS IN 1960 AND FINALLY PHASED OUT A DECADE LATER.

THE ORIGINAL FALCON DEPENDED ON SIMPLE STYLING AND SIMPLE ENGINEERING, AND ITS 144 CUBIC IN-LINE SIX DID NOT OFFER MUCH IN THE WAY OF EXCITEMENT. HOWEVER, THINGS BEGAN TO HEAT UP IN 1962 WHEN THE FALCON FUTURA WAS INTRODUCED AS A SPORTY 63 MODEL TO COMPETE WITH THE CHEVY CORVAIR MONZA. IN MID-YEAR, A 260 V8 OPTION GAVE IT THE SPICE IT NEEDED, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE FALCON HAD BECOME AN INTERESTING MACHINE. THAT V8 REMAINED AVAILABLE ALONGSIDE THE REGULAR SIXES FOR A COUPLE OF SEASONS, UNTIL THE 65S WERE BLESSED WITH LATEST 289 V8 INSTEAD.

ALREADY RESKINNED WITH SQUARER AND RATHER LESS DISTINCTIVE PANELWORK FOR 64, THE FALCON GREW IN SIZE FOR 1966 AND THE NEW MODEL WAS STRICTLY A SHORTENED EDITION OF THE FAIRLANE, WITH WAGON VARIANTS ON AN EVEN LONGER SHEELBASE. THE 289 V8 REMAINED OPTIONAL, AND THEN 1968 BROUGHT FORD'S MAGICAL 302 MOTOR WITH 230BHP.

NOT ALL FALCONS HAD PRETENSIONS TO REAL PERFORMANCE, BUT THOSE WHICH DID REMAIN INTERESTING TO ENTHUSIASTS TODAY.
