lol trying to find a gas pedal setup that will work. they had race car setup on it, I didn't like that and filled in the holes. Gonna try to make one from a foxbody mustang work.

Horn..installing a complete aftermarket steering column. so a horn is in the plans.

Re: 64 falcon project

Getting rid of the power brakes, the factory 260 and 2 speed trans. Installing a 1990 mustang 5.0 motor with trick flow heads, trickflow stage 2 cam, single plane intake, 650 speed demon, bbk headers, c4 trans with shift kit and 3500 stall.

If I can get that installed and running before spring, I will change it over to fuel injection. I have a bbk SSI intake, 30lb injectors, 75mm mass air for the 30's, painless wire harness and a3m ford ecu.

also a possibility is am explorer rear and mini tubs. just have to see how things progress.

Re: 64 falcon project

finally got back on the car..mini tub is done. ended up redoing the four link and using an explorer 8.8 (after seeing it done on one of the other project falcons). Next to save a few fund and going to redo the mustang II. should be able to get the motor lower and the car to set better as well as improving the handling .

Re: 64 falcon project

Looks like you have a very nice clean platform to start with. Funny we have two 64 Falcon Sprint builds going on at the same time. How do you like the mustang 2 front suspension? Was thinking about possibly going to it on my build, but do not have the funds right now.
