The new Ford cars for 1960 – Galaxie, Falcon and Thunderbird.

This is how Ford presented their cars in 1960. We are about to enter a beautiful, exciting, wonderful new world.

The fins might not be as big but “Space” still has a big impact on everybody. You can see the whole commercial below. Watch it and you’ll feel how things have moved on from the fifties to welcome in the new decade.

We see the new Galaxie which ended up selling nearly 290,000 units.
