1962 Sedan

1962 Falcon Sdan

Falcon Tudor Sedan is America’s lowest-priced 6-passenger car! A favorite with Families, it’s also an ideal choice for business or second car use. Fordor Sedan $2047. Tudor Sedan $I585.

Why have people bought over a million Falcons in the brief two years since its introduction? Because Falcon offers something for every compact car buyer. And in ’62, with 13 models, Falcon offers more than ever before.

A new Futura and an all-new Falcon Squire head up a selection of five sedans and eight wagons, any one of which will help you make the most of your new car dollar now and for miles and miles to come.

Falcon economy begins with its price, lowest of all 6-passenger American automobiles. Its gas economy is almost legendary. The standard Falcon Six engine with manual transmission set an all-time record in the ’61 Mobilgas Economy Run. (The optional 170 Special Six, with its extra power punch, also saves gas in the thrifty Falcon manner.) And the Falcon oil filter helps you go 6,000 miles between oil changes—2,000 more miles than in previous models.

Falcon savings go on and on. Falcon’s fully aluminized muffler and galvanized main underbody members mean longer life plus less money spent for replacement or repair. When repairs are necessary, simplified parts like bolt-on front fenders make the job faster, easier and thus less expensive.

But people buy Falcons for more than savings alone. For example, there’s roomy corn-fort for six passengers and a big trunk for all their luggage—nearly as much room as in the highest-priced compacts. Fresh air heater-defroster, included in the price of all Falcons, heads a long list of conveniences.

Combine all its savings and many fine quality features, and it’s easy to sec why Falcon is so popular. It’s only natural, then, to expect top dollar for your Falcon—no matter which of the 13 models you choose—when the time finally comes to trade it in on a new one.
