Kiwi Falcons



ISBN: 9781988538730 Category: Tags: ,


The Ford Falcon is as much a part of Kiwi Culture as fish and chips on the beach, or rugby, or wearing jandals in summer! Ford Australia launched the Falcon in 1960, and while it took the best part of five years before Ford New Zealand introduced it, it quickly became an icon, and remained that way until its eventual demise in 2016. The Falcon has played an integral role in New Zealand motorsport, beginning in the 1960s and continuing to this day. Ford car and car fans will adore this fabulous book. Kiwi Falcons is a scrapbook of personal photos by New Zealanders, of their own Falcons, or those that have played a role in their life, even if only fleetingly. The hundreds of photos are accompanied by images of Falcon sales brochures and of various Falcon automobilia. Ford may have ended Falcon production in 2016, but the model will be forever a kiwi icon.
