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...
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!
Ford XB Falcon - TV commercial (1975)
A clever ad for Ford's new XB, shot from the driver's point-of-view.
Bizarrely, this ad was "reviewed" in The Age's Drive.com.au section today -
motoring writer Jonathan Hawley somehow saw the car as being an XA, and the
ad as being from the "early 70's". Did I not spell it all out clearly
enough in the title?
