27: Ford Falcon 429 Cobra Jet
You’ve got to give Ford credit where credit is due, the company tried hard to captivate the muscle car market. The Ford Falcon 429 Cobra Jet was a unique entry that looked to build on the rampant success of the Mustang. The performance of the car stood out from a crowded array of similar vehicles. The car is very rare when you compare it to other Fords that were released at the time. The company had hoped for a moderate sales success but the Mustang continued to dominate the showrooms.
Perhaps the Ford Falcon 429 Cobra Jet was just too heavy to appeal to the masses. There were also mishaps with interior quality which caused a lot of issues with consumers. The Falcon was a notable brand for the Ford company around this time period. The Cobra Jet allowed the brand to enter into the true muscle car territory. But the car just didn’t sell how the company had hoped that it would in the long run.
