1961 Station Wagon

1961 Falcon Station Wagon
Tudor Falcon Station Wagon shown here in Corinthian White $2225.00

Basic Falcon design features, plus low initial price and excellent operating economy (up to 25 to 30 miles per gallon), make the FALCON the outstanding wagon buy in America today. If you require true wagon versatility on strict budget requirements, these wagons rate your first consideration!

Interiors offer sedan-quiet space for six with wide, foam-padded seats in front and rear. Second seat folds flat to give you over 76 sq. ft. of loadspace—over seven feet with tailgate up, almost nine feet when it’s down for maximum cargo area. Truly a compact car, yet with all the room you need for carrying a boat, power mower, shrubs, lumber, etc.

Durable, easy-to-clean, pleated all-vinyl and cloth-vinyl deluxe interiors in four combinations are color-keyed to all single and two-tone Exteriors. Rugged Western cattle-brand standard upholstery blends easy-to-care-for beige and brown plastics.

For those extra-heavy loads, a brand-new 101-hp optional engine supplies added muscle with traditional Falcon gas economy.
