28. Ford Falcon Sprint
Ford introduced the Falcon in 1960 as their first compact. It was an instant bestseller. The Falcon had a modern body and a selection of six-cylinder engines. It was an affordable yet high-quality product that appealed to many. Soon, Ford introduced more powerful V8 engines. The convertible body style made the Falcon even more popular and interesting.
However, with the introduction of the Mustang in 1964, the Falcon’s appeal started fading. The main reason was that the Mustang and Falcon shared the same platform and engines. But people turned to the better-looking Mustang. Soon, the Mustang became one of the world`s most popular classic cars while drivers forgot about the Falcon.
Ford ceased production of the Falcon in 1970. Today, the Mustang is expensive, but you can find road-ready Falcons for half the price. The parts are inexpensive. Also, the Falcon is the ideal canvas for modifications since everything from the Mustang can go in the Falcon as well. Ford made over two million Falcons in various versions and body styles, so finding one in decent condition at an affordable price shouldn’t be a problem.
