Default Falcons done right?

Just scored a 1960 Falcy from a HAMBER... throw some pictures at me of any 1960 to 1963's done right. I like the way this one looks right now, and will drive the shit out of it the way it is... just want some inspiration for when my wallet gets a little fuller.

Here she is... I'm so stoked!


C'mon... I know somebody's got Falcy's lurking on your harddrive somewhere!

Had this '63 V8 sprint 22 years ago. Falcons look good high up in the air or real low.

Nice Falcon. There have been several Falcon picture posts before, try a search. Check out Haring's Falcon too if you can find it - it's worth a look

If and when I get my 64 Tudor together I'm going to try to trade it for a round body Falcon - good lines there...

Here's mine before I tore it apart to do the body work. It's sitting as low as physically possible now (it's on the rubber snubbers) but I want it lower. I haven't figured out exactly how yet but once I dive back into it this winter i'll figure it out.

Here's mine - 63 1/2 Sprint. 302 and 4 speed now. Convert to RH drive and DAILY driver!


And here is the one we did as a project car for the Beach Hop back in 2004. Was a 4 door sedan when we drove it into the workshop and then SEVEN days later it came out looking like this - all for US$2000 including the purchase of the car. It was GIVEN away at the festival by lucky draw... the owner has since spent over $20K on it - new 302/C4/8", smoothies and WW, rechromed bumpers and is currently in the paint shop! He plans to take it to the Wintersun in Australia in 2006 and "doesn't want no damn Aussie picking it apart!"

Must be something about this car Brandy! I got "flashed" by a bunch of rather good looking young ladies while cruising the beach in the car last Summer. It was "show us your tits" without me having to say it!!!!

The rear end isn't Fairlane. We decided during the build that it needed fins so used some exhaust tube and panel steel to make them. Just a bit of mild customising.

True story - I cut my finger REAL bad (2mm of bone left) while cutting the back angle on the fins with a hacksaw - needed 2 operations to put it all back together and there are still metal filings coming to the surface - 2 years later! Lesson to be learnt - if one cuts oneself, don't just put a band-aid on it and hope it will get better by itself......

Well, even tho it's certainly a Falcon I'd own.......you STILL wouldn't get to see my tits. You know how I feel about Kiwis. The fins are awesome, they really look Fairlane from this angle.

Cmore--- it's the flu man.......I need meds.

Flatoz----I know PLENTY about Kiwis................and they know PLENTY about me. But I have a feeling that car is more real then Mel Gibson being Australian.

Here's one of my dailys, the forgoten year 67, no respect for these years, and hard to find parts for the 67's. A lot of one year only parts on this one, like the dash, bumpers and the front fenders(notice the little indentations). This car has never failed me in at least 10 years, I love it.

What year/type Mercury front bumper is that?
That's smooth, I like it.

Hey, found a guy still making full-fiberglass-frontclips... if anyone is interested PM me. I'm thinking strongly about flip/fronting mine...
just to be stupid. Ultimate addition for that gasser look, and lose a few
hundred pounds.

it's a 63 Mercury Comet front bumper flattened, then sides cut of remaining extra. The Falcon is proably about 4-6 inches wider than the Mercury.
You could use a 64 Fairlane too for the same look, but then I think the bumper is too wide.

I built a 61 gasser styled Falcon a few years ago, wished I hadn't sold it to a guy who had to have it more than I did. He supposedly drove it thru the brick wall in front of Kent State University. Anyways, I used front fender lips to radius the rears like the one earlier pic in this thread. It's real easy and looks great. Get an 8 or 9" rear and you're all set for racing, they're just so light. A good hopped up six and a modern stick will get you running with the V-8's in no time. It sure would be different.

hey ChrisDP:

what is that front bumper on your 'chero?

FYI first generation camaro rear bumpers are an almost bolt on, at least some of em, not the 69 z/28 or SS i think. but the regular wrap aroun bumpers, right now i have i think a 68 bumper on the back of my wagon, and a 67
in the attic, the 67(i think) is a little thinner with more wraparound, but may be a little tight it's narrower, but perfect if you're doing bodywork anyway. i'm workin on bodywork around the bumper of mine right now, roll pan and straightening the dip under the taillights where the stock falcon bumper dips but the new bumper is straight. i'll also be narrowing the 68 bumper that's on it an inch or so, it's fine as is, no longer than the stock bumper, but i want perfect.

No they weren't exact copies but the USA had Falcon based rancheros the same year they began 1960 and 60 was the same year you guys got Falcons.the OZ Falcon was American based from 60-71 and starting in 72 was the OZ exlusive model.

Hey Ray, I'm not certain, but I'm guessing that front bumper is off of a Plymouth Valiant--about a '65? It sure cleans up the front of that little Ranch. The Mercury bumper looks pretty slick, too. Next time I see you at a swap meet, I hope I can take some time to check out your wagon. It sounds like a kool little kar! E

Ray, OG lil E is correct, it's a Valiant bumper, but from a '63. I have a few Camaro bumpers as well but I don't know what years they are. The stock bumpers on '62-'63 are dumb. It makes no sense to me why the hood and the grille have a peak but the bumper is straight. The Valiant bumper is peaked but the license indendation mucks it up. I never got around to finishing the thing and I kept getting pulled over for not having a rear bumper so I stuck the stock ones back on.

Nice BrainFrz. The 63 1/2 are my favorites. Is there an engine in yours? It's sitting so high in the pic… What other plans for it?

Holy crap - for a car some have called "too small" and "ugly", this thread sure has shown just the opposite. GREAT examples of what can be done with this sad puppy of a car... and there are plenty of them still out there ('cause they aren't Mustangs!)

The Black 63 Sprint was sitting in the pits at the Coronado Air Base Vintage races in San Diego. I dont know anything about it..other than it is a totaly Fabuloso Falcon. It was sitting there in amoungst an incredible collection of full blown Trans Am cars ,all kinds of Mustangs , Camaros, Cudas,Challengers and it stop everyone in their tracks
I always have liked the 64 and 65s in road race trim .
Thanks Mike Hayward for the Pics.

Was a 1 owner little old lady special with plenty of petina
86,000 miles on the clock
Bought new & spent its entire life in a small town 60 miles from my home town


Wow I did not know someone made a visor. Does it fit correctly, like it was made for it?

Love to find one.....

I'd say 70 to 80% of all the 60 to 66 early Falcons sold in Australia had a sunvisor fitted from the dealer before delivery ( genuine Ford part )

How many would you like ???

She sold it last summer We got it dialed in and she decided she liked being my co-pilot more than driving by herself to shows. Stock drivetrain, gloss black with silver flaked roof by crash haley, pinstriping on trunk and hood by Cisneros, cut coils up front and 3" blocks out back. I miss that little beast!

Here is my version, it's an aussie 64 with a later falcon inline 250ci 6 with rare factory 2v high performance head. I did all the work myself
and it's my daily driver.

Here's my Ranchero. Pretty much bought it this way, but I'm switching to 5-lug pretty soon and putting it on air. Just bought a Toyota rear end -- two inches narrower than stock so I should be able to fit a decent wheel under there. I know, bad photo, and I'm a photographer so it doubly sucks.

Nice Falcons kids, keep up the good work. I started this thread last year when I bought mine, now another HAMBer has it, thrashing on it some more... how funny.

Sweet, I like the way they look on the car. Those look larger than 13inches, are they 14's?

Yes, they are 14s. The rims behind them are chrome with holes, nasty if you ask me, and the front tires rub on corners. I'm gonna try a set of stock early Mustang rims til I get the 5 lug conversion, but that'll be awhile.


Heres a pic when i got her...

Don't know if everyone will agree this is done right, but here's mine so far. Grandma's 64 with 170 in it. Lowered 3 inches and added Comet brakes up front. Maybe next winter it will get a v-8. The other pic is a photoshop of what I'd like it to look like when it's done.

man, this thread has been goin forever, but i never bothered to post my GF's car here yet, so here it is:




on airbags in front, sitting at ride height in pic, super tall rear tires for mileage, hence the excessive rake...running a 250/t5/8" drivetrain. induction is Offy 3x1 with holley glass bowl carbs, split exhaust with straight pipes. otherwise engine is stone stock and TIRED...getting yanked soon for a pretty hot build topped by FSPP's new aluminum head for the ford six's. should make it go! this is a pic from last year after i slapped on a quickie coat of rustoleum before a local show, top is silver flake. it's blown into a million pieces right now as i try to find time to finish the bodywork and get a coat of real paint on it.

My dad a cherry 63 sprint convert if it wasnt so highly optiuoned I'd be on him to do it up. Unfortunatly I dont have any pics of it. It is in one of the books on falcons though. Grandpa and my uncle there all some sort of falcon nuts. Some how I missed the sickness and got a Buick fixation.

It is chopped, but it doesn't look sectioned to me.
(I think the front wheelarches are lifted. I could be wrong.)

It's such a perfect low-mileage granny car (with a peppy 289 under the hood) that I'm not gonna do a thing to it, except swap out the wheels for some vintage American mags.

The front wheel wells are definitely higher than original which gives the Ranchero a sectioned look. An earlier post on this thread of a 1960 two-door wagon reflects a similar look with the raised front wheel wells. The side glass is one piece without the vent windows but the sail panels and rear window are not '60-63 Ranchero and actually look similar to '64-65 El Camino. The shaved doors, trimmed rain gutters and removed bed chrome make this one smooth truck front to rear.

There are certainly a lot of subtle custom touches to this Ranchero which make it extraordinary to say the least. Any idea what's under the hood?

Richard, you nailed it with the front headlight treatment! Damn, that looks killer and retro. Very nice. I don't have the heart to immitate it but damn I wish I'd thought of it first. Keep us in tune with this build.

The JapRanchero fooled me. The raised arches combined with the wide angle front grill shot gave it the appearance it was sectioned, but second look, maybe not the case. At any rate, very nice take on a kustom Ranchero.

RICHARD you totally stole my idea!! i tossed around the idea of using the econoline headlight buckets myself when my duddy used to have his '67 econo. i placed them on the front to get a rough idea but never got around to trying to make it work. you pulled it off nicely dude!!

and RETROSPEED the rear sail panels are leaned forward similar to the rancheros in austrailia. it looks like he may have started with an austrailian version and did ALOT of work to that back window/pillar, he thinned it out and got more of a nomad b pillar going on now. instant cool! oh and that japanese ranchero was at one time painted red.

This one that was in that Rustoleum paint story in Hot Rod was pretty good looking. Just basic and simple.

That Black Gasser is great. It must be a riot to drive to High School. Me, I had to pushstart '64 F100; it did have a straight axle... I don't know about a teardrop though. Thanks Eric on the complement!

Chris DP,

I had no idea the '63 Sprint doors were so different than the Ranchero's. Chopping the top and adding the Sprint windshield to your truck will look killer and definitely turn heads when it's completed. The fact you're doing it to a rare V8 Four Speed '631/2 Ranchero, will have some people scratching their heads wondering if it's factory original.

2 door wagons are rad dude! with the v8 conversion already done, that even sweetens the deal! i say snatch it up!

here's a pic of my ranchero, i added the astro's last night but they barely rub against the inner fender, so till i can radius the wheels wells to match the fronts i'll have to keep my chrome smoothies on it.

Here's my Shelby Falcon Sedan Delivery, a clone of Pete Brock's famous early '60's Shelby American shop parts chaser and tow car for the 289 Cobra roadsters. His was a '63, this one is a '61 with a 302, top loader, 9 inch rear and Sprint Interior. Fun car to drive a real head turner around town.

It's going to take a lot of work to make it right, luckily the cowl and lower windshield trim is the same between the two cars. There is about an inch gap between the door glass and the rear pillar. To keep it in proportion, I think I'm going to have to move the trailing edge of the pillar forward at least the same distance as the gap I need to fill. The post will look fatter as it is from the chop, If I just filled the gap it would look even worse. I think I'm going to move the rear window forward a bit as well and maybe straighten it out and possibly have it roll up and down. I don't know yet.

I really dig that. It almost has a factory feel to it.

Eric,

Your Ranchero has definitely come a long way since I first saw it in Baldwin Park with the orange paint and chrome wheels.
I thought it was cool then but the shaved doors, new paint and Astro Supremes look awesome on your truck.

thanks Retro, your old ranchero was definitly inspiriation for mine, the motor ruled and the stance were killer. i loved your old motor! my goal was to build a nice 6 banger done up like yours but i found a screaming deal on this one (an original V8 car). more work to come in the near future and as time and $$ provide, this is my daily, its hard to work on the daily.

Very cool! What's the rear end ratio? What did you have to do tothe C-4 to make it live? What kind of times does it turn?

I use a 4.56 axle ratio, the C4 was just built with high performance clutch's and TCI valve bady and converter with a hardend input shaft. The best its run was 2 years ago and that was a 11.60 at 118 m.p.h. Its 11.70's in the cool weather and 11.90's to 12.00's in the heat at are local tracks. If you go were there is any elevation it falls off quick into the 12 teens. Putting together a new motor over the winter and hope to run 11.50's in good air and 11.70's in the heat.

Can't let the cat out of the bag just yet! Just a teaser shot! The back will go up a little bit (not crazy) and it is getting lettered in 60's drag car style. It has a very, very healthy 302, C-4, 4-11 rear. Should be a total blast when Chris gets it done.

Cleveland and Thompson drag raceway will be nuts with gassers next year!

Sorry about the late reply. Will have to hunt and see if I can find some more photos. We used 1" exhaust tube cut on a taper at the door end and screwed to the panel 1/2" from the end. At the tail light end I drilled a 1/4" hole in the top of the fender and under the exhaust tube and used a length of threaded rod with locking nut to raise and lower the heigh of the exhaust tube until we got the desired look. When we were happy we made cardboard templates to fill in the panel between the car and exhaust pipe, cut out these shapes in sheet metal and then welded them in. The threaded rod was then removed and a quick grind and smear of body filler finished them off.

I hope this helps!

Found some pics! Remember this started as a 4 door sedan (rusty) and ended up finished as a 2 door convertible just 7 days later! The car now has a mild 302, C4, 8" with disc brake front end.

Cheers,

Noddy

We did plenty of planning and prep for the challenge. You may see in the photos the door panels weren't finished in time - about the only thing we didn't manage. The team was made up of a couple of panel beaters, school kids and local car friends.

This is no bullshit - not like certain TV Shows. Kiwis know how to make things happen - quickly!

Thanks! The car was built as a promotional vehicle for a Festival I help with - www.beachhop.co.nz and given away in a prize draw for $5. The winner had never owned a classic/custom car or Hot Rod before and has upgraded the Falcon with a 302/C4/8" etc. He now has the bug and recently imported a 65 GT K code and 66 GT A code convert Mustangs - and we are starting a 38 Chev pick up for him as well.

We've done a number of cars - 27 T roadster (matt black with flames), 52 Plymouth (green with purple scallops), 57 Nash Metro (gold flake), 27 T roadster (green flake) and our latest project a 59 Poncho that will be given away at the Festival next April. Check it our here http://www.beachhop.co.nz/2008_give_away_car.htm

Have fun!
