1960 Ford Commercial: Galaxie, Thunderbird and Falcon



Hey, it's our first video on TireKicker (and it's only 49 years old!). Yep, from the fall of 1959, here's a long-form commercial for Ford's new 1960 Galaxie, Thunderbird and Falcon. Don't know if the commercial had anything to do with it, but the Hagerty family ran out and bought a Falcon (a medium blue four-door sedan) a few months later. And my uncle Ron snapped up a red 1960 Thunderbird convertible.

Downside? Dad traded a gorgeous two-tone green and white 1956 Mercury Montclair coupe. Sure would love to have that now.
