  1. Shock Plates For An 8.8 Swap

    Falcon Pages
    Any update on this? Anyone know if the rear spring widths are the same from the mid 60's to the 61? I need to get out to my local pick-apart and get an 8.8. For the cal-tracs, can I get a few pics of the setup?
  2. 1961 Falcon Front sway bar?

    Falcon Pages
    I've been wondering about this too. Any chance an early model Mustang piece fits?
  3. My new 1960 Falcon two door wagon

    Falcon Pages
    Very cool. I like how it sits. Does it drag on speed bumps and aprons? Now you just need a surfboard on top.
  4. Max wheel width on a 61?

    Falcon Pages
    I'll have stock front suspension for the most part, with maual steering. Rear will be a narrowed 8.8 out of an explorer, but will maintain the stock spring location. Looking for max width all the way around, with a 15 or 16" steel wheel as of now. I'm thinking of running the stock poverty...
  5. Looking for the best place to find 5 lug Spindles

    Falcon Pages
    Sorry again about the Hijack... Good to hear guys. I think the Scarebird kit will be perfect for my application. Looks like Rusty got the answer he needed.
  6. Drag link issue. Any Pinto 2.3 front sump pans floating around?

    Falcon Pages
    So, I've got the majority of the "big" stuff narrowed down on this proposed Falcon build. Engine, check. Trans, check. Megasquirt, on it's way soon. Rearend, well, it needs to stop snowing. Lastly, I need the engine to play nice with the drag link or vice-versa. The late 80's 2.3...
  7. Another Disc Brake Thread

    Falcon Pages
    I am looking to do the Exploder rearend. So, that will help eliminate a few other miscellaneous costs.
  8. 8.8 Rear End Rebuild

    Falcon Pages
    Does a 275/50/15 fit in the stock wheel wells? That's a good sized tire? Hit us with some pics!
  9. New 1961 ford falcon!

    Falcon Pages
    I'm in the same exact boat. Guys here recommend a 8.8 out of a '94+ Explorer. It needs narrowed, but is supposed to handle a good amount of power. Just grab another "short" axle out of another rearend. I need to hit up my local pick and pull yard, but it wont stop snowing.
  10. '61 Falcon body trim, chrome package

    Body and Exterior
    So lettuce and tomato? I like both of those! Thanks man, I appreciate the clarification.
  11. Tips for buying a Ford Falcon

    Falcon Pages
    Everything I post here is my opinion. So take it with a grain of salt. #1 I like body style of the 1st gen Falcons. Blame Brad Pitt in the Ocean's movies.. I saw that convertible and knew I'd get one. Same thing when I saw the BMW X5 on Motorweek in 2002. Knew I'd get one, and did...

    How is the Scarebird kit? I honestly haven't had the chance to ask an end user.
  13. Selling Custom Falcon after small crash.

    Falcon
    Wow. I'm sure with his extensive classic car knowledge, he knows that #1, it's a Falcon. #2, it's a 4 door. And #3, its not worth fixing. It might be worth what the engine and trans can fetch... Not a lot more.
  14. '61 Falcon body trim, chrome package

    Body and Exterior
    I have a set of body trim pieces for a '61 2dr, with what I believe to be a "chrome package". Meaning, there are two pieces of trim per panel, with the taillight trim. Not the taillight bezels, but the trim that goes along the body line, around the light. Some are a little dented, but...
  15. Hubcaps (dog dish/poverty)

    Wanted
    To the OP, Id go with cap #1. The second just makes me think of a '68 or '69 LTD, which is a boat...
  16. My new 63 Falcon Vert

    Falcon Pages
    This post reminds me of a '69 Mustang my old man had a number of years ago. I was driving it at night, up to the house, which is way out in the boonies. Going along at a good clip, and the whole car shut off. Engine, dash lights, etc... Took a ton of troubleshooting to figure out it was...
  17. Newer oem mustang wheel fitment in 63 flacon

    Falcon Pages
    I would save some time and $$ and just get the spacers you already have milled down 1/8" or so.. That should ensure the wheel hub gets centered on the Granada hub. Unless I'm missing something, that seems like it would be a quick and easy solution.
  18. Looking for the best place to find 5 lug Spindles

    Falcon Pages
    Slight Hijack here... Are the V8 spindles and bearings considerably stronger? I was planning on keeping the factory 6cyl ones, and doing a Scarebird swap to 5 lug hubs and discs. Difference being, my engine is a 2.3 Turbo. I don't know the weight off the top of my head, but I'm thinking...
  19. Looking for the best place to find 5 lug Spindles

    Falcon Pages
    Am I wrong in assuming that the hub can be replaced? Or is the OP asking about a disc swap too?
  20. 1961 Falcon--My First Build

    Falcon Pages
    Jd1973, it's not nice to hijack someones thread. The OP mentioned budget build. Which is exactly what I'm just getting rolling on. IIRC, a 302 with headers will fit in between the strut towers, tight, but fits. Check out Crites. They offer a number of options for our 1st gens. Be it...
