Long before George Lucas introduced us to the Millennium Falcon, in his exceedingly famous Star Wars movie, the Ford Motor Company showed us they had a Falcon of their own. While you could make the argument that both models were light duty haulers, I bet that YOU'RE more likely to be turning wrenches on a Ford automobile than anything built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. If your Falcon is of the Ford variety, then this is the book you'll want to use to keep it running. In fact, if HARRISON Ford had a service and repair book for his Falcon that was as comprehensive as this Ford Motor Company-authored guide, I'm sure he'd rarely miss the ability to jump to hyperspace.
This service manual provides you with almost 300 pages of detailed instructions about virtually all areas of these vehicles. You'll also truly appreciate the fact that those well-written text instructions have been paired with a vast number and variety of visual aids. There are tables, illustrations, cutaway views, exploded views, black and white photographs and more. Together, these instructions will give you the step-by-step information you'll need to knock-out your list of projects for your classic.
Regardless of your experience under the hood, the 1961 Ford Falcon Shop Manual is going to make you a better operator, whether you're performing major repairs, or even via crucial and detailed information about such items as glass run retaining screws, tailgates and working through the access hole.

The Falcon model was a major success for Ford, outpacing compacts from GM and Chrysler. The 1961 Falcon came with the following engines - covered in this manual:
- 6-cylinder OHV 144 cubic inch - Engine Code: S
- 6-cylinder OHV 144 cubic inch (Low compression - 84 octane) - Engine Code: D
- 6-cylinder OHV 170 cubic inch - Engine Code: U
It had classic bucket seating, but style and looks weren't the only thing the Falcon had going in its favor. By comparison to other vehicles on the road, the Falcon could proudly claim to offer 30 miles per gallon. That's a good number now, but it was certainly quite an impressive number back in 1961! For being a compact car, it also boasted an impressive 23.7 cubic feet of trunk space. Ford was so proud of the model that it even listed the interior coat hooks (two!) in its brochures.
This 1961 Ford Falcon Shop Manual is a smart, comprehensive resource. Even the most polished mechanic or restorer will probably learn a trick...or three.
