8Ford Falcon

via mecum.com

Ford is one of the leading car producers locally, and in 1960 they produced something magnificent - their first compact model - the Ford Falcon. Falcon was an instant best seller; a character it must have picked from its modern body style and exceptional performance, what with its wide options

of economical six-cylinder engines. Though it was an affordable car, Motor Junkie says it would still appeal to buyers. As time went by Ford introduced more powerful models powered by V-8 engines. What also made Falcon more interesting was the introduction of the convertible body style. With the introduction of the Mustang, the appeal of Falcon began to decline since they shared the same platform with similar engines and therefore most people turned their attention to a better looking Mustang. The production of Falcon therefore ended in 1970. Over two million of Falcon were produced with different body styles.
