The Ford Falcon line of cars was produced by Ford in the USA from 1960 to 1970 as one of the first compact cars to be developed by the big three automobile manufacturers. Developed as a scaled-down version of the full-size Ford Galaxie sedan, the Falcon was offered in the same body styles as its full-size Galaxie counterpart, including two-door and four-door sedans, two-door hardtops and convertibles, two-door and four-door station wagons.
It importantly formed the basis upon which the Ford Mustang model was based and obviously the basis for the Australian Falcon, Futura, Fairmont and GT models.
