The Ford Falcon in Argentina – Lots of survivors still around.

December 16, 2012

by Seb Perez

The Ford Falcon was one of the most successful cars in the argentine car history, and that can be clearly seen on the streets. With 466,796 units made it was one of the most produced cars in Argentina. The car was produced from 1962 to 1991, a total of 19 years.  Six restyling were made to the Ford Falcon in Argentina along the years.

Here you see many of those survivors, some of them still in great shape, others in restorable condition and many of them to be used only as donor cars. My father had 2 Falcons during my childhood and I remember many trips across the country in those Ford Falcons. The Ford Falcon is not only a special car for me, but for most people in Argentina

 

Enjoy the pics!

Enjoyed the images of Ford Falcons. I built a 1960 Falcon 2-door wagon in the fall of 1966. I put a 225 HP 289 with a Shelby cam and a four speed trans in it. It had a rear axle from a 1963 Mercury Metor wagon with 3.50 gears. I opened up the rear wheel wells so they looked like the front wheel wells. I removed all of the seats and installed two 1966 Thunderbird bucket seats. I replaced the dash instruments with the instrument housing fron a 1966 Mustang GT. It had a tack from a 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone mounted on the dash. I replaced the steering wheel with a small Grant steering wheel. I was a fun car to drive. I am building a model of this old car now and am able to find many of the parts I need in my old parts boxes from building AMT models in the early 1960’s. I am also working on my old gas station diorama. I will have to send you some pictures when it is done. Steve

Hi Steve, that Falcon project sounds very interesting, do you still have the model? or maybe pictures? We would love to see that, also your gas station, please send us the pics to info (at) modeljunkyard (dot) com. Thanks!

i like your pictures of those rusty diamonds. The ‘updated’ Falcon looks funny/weird. Where Argentina updated the old 60’s version, Australia updated the whole car, so the Falcon is a world-class automobile.

I had a wonderful 1964 Falcon Ranchero with a 289 HP engine, crager mag wheels, etc. I would take it to car shows and get lots of raves on it. So glad to find this site as i have been trying to find a model of my old Falcon that i could build to look like the original car. How do i put some pics of my car on here?
