    I have 64 and 65 Falcons, as well as 64 and 65 Comets. No Falcon (at least released in the USA) ever had the "electric shaver" style grille.
    Falcons had larger headlights, so this has to be custom, built out of a couple of 64 Comet grilles. Sorry.

    The '64 grille was designed off the Lincoln Continental. I'm betting that's a wide Lincoln grille, possibly Mercury Marauder.

    Do you know the driver of the '63 S-22? I'd like to meet him and get the scoop on his setup.
    Thanks ;)

    One of my favorites but.......
    Is that 2 different cars (one a clone one the original?) I noticed Jardine header decal missing on the last few as well as window decals.
    BOTH cars really 'trip-my-trigger'!
