Charlie Brown & Linus for Ford Falcon Futura (1961)

“That new Falcon Futura sure is a wower!”

Right, Linus — and the very latest word is… Futura!

Everything about Futura says “personal,” the contoured twin front seats, the elegant trim and color schemes. Even personal effects get the deluxe treatment — in a sleek new console between the front seats. And Futura gives you two great engines to choose from.

For extra power, there’s a zesty new 170 Special. Then, too, there’s the standard Falcon Six, that proved its economy when a Falcon with standard shift obtained 32.6 mpg in this year’s Mobilgas Economy Run… highest gas mileage ever obtained by a 6 or 8 in the 25-year history of the Run.

The new Falcon Futura has all these winning features built-in — yet it’s priced even below many standard compacts! See it at at your Ford Dealer’s!
