THROWBACK VIDEO Down Under with the 1985 Ford Falcon Ute

1985 ford falcon commercial

This week’s Throwback video takes us down the Australia, where we check out a commercial for the 1985 Ford Falcon lineup – including a Ute, what we would consider a smaller pickup, like a Ranchero and the Panel Van, which is like a Ranchero with a cap. These vehicles have never been sold here in the U.S. and in the modern market, the Ford Falcon comes with some high performance variants. However, back in 1985, the Ford Falcon looked like more of a competitor for the Subaru Brat or the pickup version of the front wheel drive Dodge Charger.

This video talks about all of the upsides of the 1985 Ford Falcon, including a roomy interior…which makes us realize how much nicer it is for the “small trucks” in the U.S. to be something as large as the Ranger.

Crank up your speakers and enjoy a taste of Ford’s Australian marketing.
