69 Parts Interchange

For anyone who is interested, we found this on the net and thought we would post because we had a hard time finding anything on the subject.....

Here are a few items that are interchangeable from 1966-1969 Falcons.

66-70 fenders all 'technically' bolt up, but have small differences that will need to be remedied to be "correct".

66-67 doors interchange, 68-70 doors interchange. The doors themselves WILL bolt up, but the crank positioning through the trim panels etc is different.

68-70 grilles are all the same (Im almost certain), 66 and 67 are year specific.

66 and 67 taillights do interchange, but have a different look to them. OK as long as you dont mind it not having an authentic look, but the bolt up and bulbs are the same.68-70 taillights are all the same (again, Im almost
certain), but not with the 66-67 as they are round and the latter are square.

66-70 glass interchanges.

Hoods interchange, but there is a grille support flange that needs removed for a 66-67, or added for a 68-70. Hood themselves are all the same though.

68-70 dashes are WAY different than the others. 66 and 67 will interchange, but do have a different look to them.

66-70 trunks interchange.

66-70 window trims interchange.

66-70 wheelwell trim does/will interchange, but do tend to get different looks to them.
Get a whole set or dont bother.

66-67 front bumpers are the same.

68-70 front bumpers are the same.

66-70 rear bumpers are the same as far as I know.

1969 Falcon SIDE MARKER BEZELS C9AZ-15A440-A same as MUSTANG, SHELBY, BOSS AND CJ

Handles, latches, and locks will also fit 66/67 Fairlane and Comet, 66-70 Falcon, 68-71 Torino and Montego, 69-70 Cougar.

Headliners for a 1966-1971 Fairlane, Torino, or Comet - fastback, hardtop or sedan will interchange with 68-70 Falcons.

64-76 FORD FALCON/FAIRLANE/TORINO trunk lid seals are all interchangeable.

#6735 POWER STEERING SLAVE CYLINDER FITS;
1967-70 MERCURY COUGAR
1965-69 COMET, MONTEGO
1966-67 MUSTANG
1966-69 FALCON
1966 -69 FAIRLANE, TORINO, RANCHERO
1963-4 FORD GALAXIE

Front shocks 1966-70 FORD FAIRLANE/FALCON; 1975-80 FALCON; 1961-63 THUNDERBIRD; 1960-65 RANCHERO are all the same.

Left and right side door glass fits in a 1966/67 Ford Fairlane 2 door sedan model 62-A ,62-B. It will also fit in a 1966 to 1970 Falcon 2 door sedan model 62-A ,62-B ,and 62-C Futura.

67 Fairlane Hood hinges are the same for the Comet, Falcon & fairlane from 66 to 69 & to 70 on the Falcon.

Justin Welling started this list originally and we all can add to it!

Thanks Justin!

I will add to this list as I find more parts that are interchangeable.

Feel free to e-mail me if you know of any other parts that interchange and I will add them to the list.

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

Great info and should be very helpful, because I see many of questions posted here, being answered.
I think it would be very worthwhile if admin would come up with a way to store that type of info in a ' what fits what forum".
Thanks for posting that.

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

How does the 66 Ranchero fit into this?

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

Excellent information. Most of it I was aware of, however, it isn't always that easy to get some of these parts side by side anymore.

How about weather stripping in the doors? Window fuzzies, etc. should be interchangeable as the windows are, between the body styles.

How about the seals around the doors, etc? Anybody know?

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

This is a very good post , but I question some things. In 1970 the Falcon badge was put on the remaining 69 models, and later on the Fairlane cheaper editions. Also the headliner part about sharing with the hardtops, and Fastbacks. The tops on these were different in the C post.

1966/67 Rancheros had the some platform as the Fairlane, The 66 models were Falcon from the dash forward in sheetmetal and ornamentation.

The 66 through early 1970 door seals will interchange on the 62A body, such as the sport coupe.

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

Also, you can bolt Fairlane fender on 'em if you feel the need. Same front end, pretty much.

Incorrect. What you describe was for the 70 1/2 Falcon, which was basically a re-badged Torino. '68 to early '70 Falcons all had the same body style.

Thanks again to Justin Welling for collecting the above posted list of '66 to '70 Falcon Interchangeable parts.

Also, if you have a '68, '69 or '70 and are having a tough time finding a decent dashpad, you can use a dashpad {and heater controls} from a '68-'69 Fairlane, Torino or Ranchero. Bolts right in, except for a 2 little slots you have to cut for the heater control arms.

This is incorrect. The lower dash for the Fairlane, Torino, Ranchero will interchange for these years, but the dash pads are total different, as the gauge clusters for '68 -'70 Falcons use a single large oval opening, while the '68-'69 F/T/R's use 4 individual guage pods.

I was able to put a Torino dash in my '69 Falcon wagon without drilling any holes, but I also swapped the wiring harness to work with the gauge cluster.

As CKelly said, a '66-'67 Fairlane front clip will interchange, just get everything. Fenders were a straight bolt on, 4 holes for the grill, and if I remember correctly, 2 for each headlight bucket assembly. Been about 10 years, memories fade.

Now someone who has never done any of this will chime in and tell me it can't be done.

The rest of the list looks good, but I agree, the headliner part is suspect.

That's what I know.

Brett

Actually, this is NOT incorrect. Obviously the dashpads are different on the outside but will in fact bolt right on to the Falcon lower dash. The heater controls are also different but except for cutting 2 little slots for the levers to poke thru the lower dash, they BOLT RIGHT IN. A small amount of remapping of some wiring is needed to complete the project.
Take a look at this thread over at tffn and you'll see what I mean.

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

My point exactly. Different guage cluster.

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

Brett,
So you assumed I meant a person could use a '68-'70 Falcon gauge cluster with a '68-'69 Fairlane, Torino or Ranchero dash pad ? Hmm. I figured that pretty much anyone would see that, obviously, a '68-'69 F/T/R gauge cluster would need to be used with a '68-'69 F/T/R dash pad as the 2 pads and clusters are completely different from each other.
My point was that this swap/modification was a viable and less expensive option for those who want to replace their dash pad in their '68-'70 Falcons. The link I provided spells out EXACTLY what parts are needed for the swap and how easy a swap it is. And NO, you do NOT need to swap in a '68-'69 F/T/R lower dash into a '68-'70 Falcon for this swap to work.

By the way, the '68-'69 F/T/R gauge cluster is NOT 4 seperate pieces, as you infer, but rather 3 gauges in 1 cluster and your choice of a tach, clock or delete plate for the 2nd cluster {or as I call it, a mini cluster}. These clusters attach seperately to the back of the dash pad and are viewed via the 4 seperate "pod" openings.

Regards, Jon

Re: 69 Parts Interchange

Why does everything always have to turn into a pissing contest around here?

I just read all the posts again.

I'm leaving my fly up this time and walking away.

Best wishes, Brett

Brett,
I'm not trying to get into a pissing match either, just wanted to get some good info out for my "Big Bird" Falcon bretheren. Finding parts for our particular year Falcons is hard enough without overlooking any viable, cost effective options. It's a simple swap that I think improves the look of our "Big Birds" and is a lot more cost effective than trying to find a good '68 to '70 dash pad or having one re-done. '68-'69 F/T/R dash pads in good shape are much easier to find and a helluva lot cheaper. Not too mention that, when completed, the look is much sportier.
Sorry if you thought I was looking for an argument, that was not my intent. Jon
