Where can I find information about military production by country in the 1960s?

I am designing on a Risk-style world conquest board game set during the 60s. I will have a number of different unit types, and, if it makes historical sense, I'd like some countries to be better at constructing different types of units.
To help figure out which countries (if any at all besides the USA and USSR) would be best at producing different kinds of units, I'd like to find some statistics on production capacity of military vehicles by country, preferably in the 1960s. I don't have the first clue as to how to go about this. My Googling has come up pathetically short.
Also helpful would be some sort of compare/contrast or rating of the various 1960s military vehicles produced by different countries, but I suspect that might be even harder to find.
While I'd prefer to find something like this on a website, I am totally open to tracking down books if it is necessary.
