Recently the Ford Motor Company announced that by 2020 it will only be manufacturing and selling two car models, the Mustang and a new Focus Active fastback crossover vehicle.
Ford’s reasoning behind the change is that the Company is losing money on every new car it manufactures and sells other than the popular Mustang, which has been in the car marketplace for almost fifty-four years. The Automaker’s focal point will be its popular and profitable line of pickup trucks and sport utility models.
Today’s feature image is the enlargeable 1962 Ford advertisement below that contains the four automobiles it offered at the time. Twelve different body styles were available in a total of fifteen different models and trim levels.
For a change we are presenting today’s 1962 Ford feature as an open discussion were readers can comment on the Company’s offerings fifty-six years ago along with the auto and truck manufacturers 2020 product line up. The photograph is courtesy of the Ford Motor Company.
