1959 Ford Falcon

The 'Frankfurter Allgemeine' calls it a death messanger, because with him 'thousands of persons were kidnapped in Argentina during the dictatorship between 1976 and 1983'. But since the car can't help it actually.

It is probably the fact that it was relatively spacious and at the same time inexpensive. The Argentina version led to a very sparse facelift. The data of the first Falcon are noted above, but it was only exported to Argentina in 1962, and its displacement was increased to 3 and 3.6 liters respectively.

Here in the picture you see the second generation of the Ford Falcon. The first was to date the basis for the Ford Mustang and even earlier for the Mercury Comet. Instead of the row six, a V8 was now possible. The reliability of the Falcon remained legendary.

Below you will see an important innovation, TV marketing with the help of the first animated performances of the characters of Charles Schulz's acclaimed comic strip, Peanuts, commented by Paul Frees, the 'man with a thousand voices'.. 02/15
