Ford Dealer Presenting Bart Starr with New Car
Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers receives a new 1961 Ford Falcon from a Green Bay Ford dealer. The compact Falcon was introduced by Ford in 1959 to appeal to drivers seeking better mileage. It was available in several styles in addition to the four-door sedan seen here, including convertibles and station wagons, and it was immediately popular with car buyers. The Falcon also served as the framework for the Ford Mustang. Production of the Falcon in the United States ended in 1970.
