Can you tell an Impala from a Galaxie, or an early Mustang from a first-generation Camaro? Do you remember what a Corvair looked like, or a Falcon, and which brand made each model?
We’ve assembled a collection of photos of 1960s vehicles from both brands. Each had its own unique style in that decade, although one could argue there were some similarities here and there. If you think you know 1960s Fords from Chevys like you know coffee from tea or beer from wine, then put your memory and skill to the test by taking this quiz.
The 1960s was a time of bold automotive design, huge showroom successes and experimentation that produced a plethora of eye-catching models and memorable driving experiences. Both Chevrolet and Ford pushed the envelope to capture a greater share of the market, developing vehicles that included new mid-size entries, sporty coupes, “personal luxury” models and, of course, muscle cars. Pickup trucks, too, began to offer more style and comfort.
So, here goes. Glance at each photo and tells us whether the vehicle you see is a Chevy or a Ford. After your selection, you’ll learn a bit of history about each model, some of it surprising.
After taking the quiz, forward it to friends to see if any can beat your score.
Good luck, and have fun!
