1960 Ford Starliner

If you like cars, I mean all cars not just the brand you drive, then you most likely have a warm spot in your heart for the 1960 Ford Starliner. Ok, so it’s not the most popular car in your list of must haves. However, it was unique and very symbolic of the early 60s. Back then. the manufactures would completely redesign their new cars every year. The result was a new car with little resemblance to the previous year’s must have car. Think what a 1959 Ford looks like and then compare that to this 1960 model. Today, not only can you not tell one year from another, it is nealy impossible to tell a Chevy from a Toyota!

The pages below are from a vintage newsletter, Ford and Mercury Speedway Newsletter. It gives you some insight into what car guys were thinking back in the early to mid 1980 about the 20+ year old Ford.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
