Ever stopped to figure out just what it is about Falcon wagons that puts them so far ahead of the compact pack in popularity?
You might consider looks. Falcon wagons have the happy knack of looking as if they belonged. Squiring the kids around town, parked off the trail by a campfire or trout stream, hub deep in mud or sand doing the chores, or spruced up for a night on the town . . . they fit right in. That’s important.
Economy counts, too. And Falcon takes a back seat to nobody on that score. Well-recognized as economy champs, Falcons this year are better than ever, with the addition of Ford’s famous Twice-a-Year Maintenance that lets you go 6,000 miles between service stops . . . 36,000 miles between major chassis lubes . . . 6,000 miles between oil changes and minor lubrications . . . and coolant-antifreeze lasts 36,000 miles or two years.
And how do they rate for roominess? Judge for yourself: Flip down the second seat and you’ve a level loadspace over 7 feet long; open the tailgate and you have almost 9 feet. It’s just shy of 5 feet wide inside. Of course, with that second seat up you seat six simply. All this in a compact wagon.
Conveniences? Falcon has ’em by the bushel. Foam-cushioned seats arc standard, front and rear. The second seat folds down in a jiffy. The rear window rolls down. The tailgate is counterbalanced. The spare tire is handy to get at. Two Sixes and the new 164-hp Challenger V-8 are offered to fit your power wants.
Handling? Falcon all the way. Silky. Quick, Responsive. Frisky. Downright fun to drive.
Variety? A grand total of eight to choose from. When all’s said and done, it’s little wonder is it, why Falcon leads the compact wagon train. Like to get on board?

Time was when luxury cost a pretty penny. But not this time. The Falcon Squire is a wagon that’s Falcon and through and through – but with a difference. Rich, simulates hard-wood paneling on the sides and rear puts the Squire at the head of the handsome set. Inside there’s color-keyed carpeting in the passenger area and color-keyed, vinyl-coated rubber decking back aft. A power tailgate window is standard equipment. And beneath this luxury is a wagonful of Falcon economy, beginning with a low purchase price, continuing with saving while you drive and ending with more dollars when you trade. It’s a low-priced way to go first class.
