1964 Ford Falcon Typography

I just recently purchased a new car, a 1964 Ford Falcon. After owning the car for a short time now, I’ve noticed lots of cool little typographical nuggets in and outside of this awesome new old ride. Here are some shots I took of all of the cool stuff we found.

I love that Ford put enough thought into designing this car that they used three different styles of sans for “Falcon”.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the right headlight has the GE logotype on it. Photo Credit: Cade Cran
