1962 Ranchero

1962 Falcon Ranchero

Here’s all the flair and fashion . . . all the riding comfort and handling ease . . . even the compact cost of a Falcon car. The 1962 Falcon Ranchero is a wonderful combination of beauty, workability and economy. Your savings starts with a low, thrifty price tag, and continue with exceptional gas economy.

In certified test – including hill, constant speeds on level roads, and simulated traffic conditions – the standard 85-hp Economy Six averaged 30 miles on a gallon of regular gas. And total operation costs – oil. maintenance, tires, parts – are remarkably low.

Business is more of a pleasure! Your loads are easier to work, with only a 38.9 lift from the ground to the top of the Ranchero’s side, or only 27 inches to the sturdy steel tailgate. And when business is done . . . outdoor sports fans (who also like comfort) will find the Ranchero a perfect companion on hunting, fishing, camping and boat trips.


The Falcon Pickup’s big 6-ft. box (nearly 8-ft. with tailgate down) gives over 31½ cu. ft. of usable loadspace. And that’s room aplenty for most pickup jobs. Over 55 in. of flat floor width (42.6 in between wheelhousings). The instant-lock tailgate can be opened or closed with a simple one-hand motion and is grain-tight.
