RealRides of WNY - 1960 Ford Falcon

With debut-year sales of more than 435,000 units, it’s not a stretch to say that most of us (of a certain age) probably knew someone who drove a 1960 Falcon. Although it may not have had the aftermarket wheels and paintjob of this one, seen a few years ago in Youngstown, it would still have been an affordable (starting MSRP of $1,912), cheap-to-drive, sensibly-sized vehicle in an age where cars annually kept getting longer, lower, and wider to the point that they didn’t easily fit in many garages. My Dad gave one to my Mom for her birthday in September 1960, a soon-to-be leftover 1960 Tudor in Adriatic Green with a three-on-the-tree and a single option: an AM radio ($54.05 — sans pushbuttons!).
