Falcon was Peter Pellandine's new company after Ashley. From the early '50s they offered the Caribbean (pictured). This happened to be their most successful model, being sold about 2000.
It was a pretty two-seater for Ford 10 mechanicals, available in open and closed forms. Falcon enlisted the services of Len Terry (of Terrier), who designed the spaceframe chassis which often sat under Caribbean shells, later with independent front suspension. Optionally, other engines, including Coventry-Climax and MGA, could be fitted. In 1961 came the uglier four-seater coupé version of the Caribbean, the Bermuda.

A nice Falcon story was featured in the February, 1998 issue of Classic & Sportscar
