History of the 1960-1963 Ford Falcon

The first-generation Ford Falcon, introduced in the fall of 1959 for the 1960 model year, has many claims to fame, including being one of the highest selling new cars in history – until the Mustang came out 4½ years later. While the Falcon certainly was not the first modern American “compact car,” it was Ford’s first American compact.

Ford knew that the new “compact” car had to be much cheaper to build than the “normal” sized cars, so they minimized the weight of the car by engineering a new unit-construction body and a short-stroke inline six of only 144 cubic inches. The engine weighed so little that a healthy man could actually lift it, yet it produced 90 horsepower, more than twice that of the Volkswagen of the day. But the extremely short stroke meant that the car developed little usable torque. When paired with the new, very cheap to produce two-speed Fordomatic, performance was tepid, to say the least.
