    Yeah...Ok.
    The car must have been real rusty so he did some Hot Rod thinking to get a safe and viable suspension/frame under it.
    No reason that can't work if some thought goes into it.

    At least it isn't on a 78 Chevy 4x4 frame!!!:p

    I say give the guy a chance, along with some help and guidance.;):D

    This style of chassis swap really screams Stock car/Modified to me!
    If done right as a street vehicle it could bre a real road burner.

    Good luck on the frame but I think its going to be way to wide .

    This was my falcon 4 years ago when I was in the Navy. It was one of the best running cars I have ever owned. Real easy to find parts for because they can be swaped with Mustangs. This was a 61 with a 170 inline six. Your Falcon looks like a futura which is the sports model. V8 all the way.
