We have finally started for real on my 1963 Falcon Gasser restoration project. The car was originally owned by Dana Hefman of Fredericksburg VA. The original rollbar and straight front axle were done by City Welding in Fredericksburg. The car was originally powered by a 390 Ford FE (topped with an Edelbrock cross ram style manifold) and a 4 speed, built by Tommy Jacobs of Stafford, VA. The car was turned into a race car in 1965 (according to Tommy). It has been parked for about 30 years, and has gotten pretty rough. Keven Hedrick, proprietor of the Auto Muffler King in Newport News VA has taken on the challenge of doing all of the metal repair and suspension/roll cage installation. I want to keep the original/period appearance of the car inside and out, but I also want to be able to race it in some of the nostalgia events. The front end is being upgraded to a Speedway Motors tube front axle (4" drop) with Mustang II front brakes, and the roll cage is a S&W Race Cars 8 point kit. But first, the rust has to be fixed (trunk floors, front floor pans and cowl area). Keven's already got the trunk floors done. No one makes trunk floors for a 60-63 Falcon, so he made the side floors, and repaired the front panel cut out of my parts car.
