    Ford Falcon Rally cars

    Ford was very active in motorsport in the 1960s whether it was the Mustang, the GT40 at LeMans or the Galaxie in NASCAR. For the Falcon though, Ford saw fit to modify the car for European rally racing, which was uncharted territory for an American car.

    It turns out that the little Falcon would make quite a name for itself at the famous Rally Monte Carlo. One of the drivers that Ford selected to pilot the Falcons was Bosse Ljungfeld, a Swedish driver known for his rallying skill. Although he would later be pushed back in the standings due to penalties, Ljungeld won all six of the timed stages at this event.
