    Just completed a disc brake conversion on my 1964 Sprint, necessitating the swap from 13” to 14” wheels. My friend (a mustang guru) said that the best size tires are 205/75/14. Just seeking other suggestions for a good clearance in the wheel well.

    Hello, I'm planning a Coyote resto-mod on my 1965 Falcon. And I have a general idea what needs to be done. My only question is, if I plop in a new rear end (a 8.8" or 9") and pair it with the existing 170cu l6, what challenges can I expect? I plan on using 31 splines with 5 lugs, but may use...

    hi everyone my name is Jarod and I am almost 16. I got my first classic a 1964 falcon 2dr sedan. I love it but the stock 170ci i6 makes only 100 hp gross. I just think that's to low for me.

    I have a 64 Falcon Futrua 4Dr and the brake lights will not come on. The headlights work just fine but they are about the only electric thing that currently works. I've checked all the bulbs and wires they seem to be in good condition. Not sure what else to check.

    does anyone have pictures or a diagram of the vacuum lines on their carb? The previous owner had lines plugged and clipped all over the place and its not the original engine. Its a 200 straight 6 with a single barrell carb.

    Hello all. I have been working on a 1963 Falcon project for some time now and decided to start posting it on a forum. The details of the build up until this point are here: https://skylersfalcon.wordpress.com/ This is a pretty extreme restomod; there is very little Falcon left. Here are...

    I recently became the proud owner of a 1960 Falcon with 144 ci straight 6. From what I was told, it has been sitting in a shed/barn since 1994. The engine wants to run but doesn't seem to be getting any gas. The shop replaced the gas tank, fuel lines, sending unit, and fuel pump, as well as a...

    I'm looking to purchase a unmolested 63 Sprint Hardtop as close to stock as possible. I'm not looking for all the bells and whistles. It's just not me. I've seen all the ones on eBay, Classic Cars, and Hemmings and they are either too modified or too expensive. I was hoping you could lead me to...

    Anyone have photos that show how the weatherstrips on the doors are oriented for a 1965 Falcon or Ranchero? Close ups would be appreciated as I'm not 100% sure I even know which strip is my passenger side and which is my driver side (I stupidly removed them from their bags before I realized...
