1984 ford aussis light truck

This week’s Throwback video takes us Down Under to Australia, where we check out an ad for the 1985 Ford light duty truck lineup and special deals being run on these Ford vehicles back in 1984. Including in this commercial are the Ford Courtier, the Ford Econovan and the Ford Spectron wagon – three Australian vehicles which never made it to the U.S. in this form. However, these vehicles appear to be the Aussie equivalent to the Ford Ranger, the Ford Aerostar and an heavier duty Aerostar.

Back in 1984, Ford of Australia was trying to back up its spot as the country’s top light duty truck and van brand in terms of sales, so this classic ad shows these three Ford vehicles smashing through signs, complete with very 80s-esque special effects.
