I like my Global West SFC. All SFC’s need to be welding on to be more effective. Make sure all 4 corners are loaded and not off the ground. I prefer using a drive on lift. This way the car thinks it is still on the ground.

Yeah...what he said.
Many here on this forum have fabricated their own.

I used these as have some others here on this board. Powder coated finish and perfect fitment.

I think these are the best design that I have seen they are made by Maier Racing. The extra contact points and their overall design are a plus.

Crites makes a sq tube connector that will fit the Falcon and are easy on the pocket if you do not fabricate.

TCP use to make them for Falcon and ranchero but ran into fitment issues. I think they were selling the same ones they used for the Mustangs. These can be used as can any sub frames for the early Mustang but the front of these are spread 1/8 to ¼ wider than those used for the Falcons. They can be easily altered to fit or used as is and just pacing a piece of steel plate along side the sub fame when it is welded in.

You will find that any of the Mustang sub fame connectors are considerably cheaper that Falcons. It is the price we pay for the cars we love!

I used 2x3 tubing and cut the floor to fit then welded from frame to frame along with the floor also. Very strong this way.

Most guys seem to go with Global West. I just got mine from Crites Restoration. I test fitted them yesterday and I like the square tube, it matches the frame. Just make sure you go with weld in connectors. Bolt in units just won't hold up.

Here is my 2 cents. On my 64 I cut the ends out of the front subframe extensions. Predrill 3-4 1/2" holes inside and out of the subframe. I used 2 pieces 1x2"x .100" wall stiched togather side by side. Slide them as far into the front subframe as possible on there edge (4 vertical supports). Fully weld including plug weld the 1/2" holes you predrilled. You will have to cut the floor but is by far stronger. I can't help you on the back end at the torque boxes, as I installed a crossmember like a Thuderbolt.
