Ford XK Falcon cinema short - 1960
Here's a cinema short from 1960 introducing the car on which their fortunes
rode for the last fifty or so years - the Falcon.
UPDATE: Just noticed some a**ehole on eBay selling copies of this -
complete with my watermark...
Ford XT Falcon ute - TV commercial (1968)
Ad for the XT Falc ute. Emphasis is on the rugged construction,
load-carrying space, etc - a far cry from today, when utes are being pushed
as sports vehicles...
Update, October 2013: Just been approached by Discovery Channel, who asked
for a copy of this ad to be used in an episode of UK car series "Wheeler
Dealers" (one of my favourite shows, as it happens!). Apparently, Ford
Australia don't have a copy themselves...
Holden vs Ford: witches-hats - TV commercials
From 1978, the great Holden versus Ford, "witches hats" controversy!
After the Holden ad aired, Ford claimed that the other vehicles had been
deliberately driven in a manner which made them look bad. So, they did
their own ad - using Ford racing drivers as the witches-hats...
Fred Gibson's driving the Falcon.
EJ Holden - TV commercial (1963)
Overly-long TV commercial for the EJ, which focuses more on Holden's
contribution to local industry, etc...
A prime example of just how boring early 60's TV commercials could be!
1960 Ford car commercial
These are gorgeous cars - the Galaxie, Thunderbird and Falcon. And the
Falcon got up to 30 MPG! Dig those women's fashions, too - you almost
expect Jackie Kennedy to step out of the car.
Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.
