Holy crap. Those are nice. I will see of I can bribe them to ship them.
If not, maybe there's a HAMB'er in the area that could pick them up and ship them for you.
I started a relay thread: https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...relay-lansing-mi-to-san-francisco-ca.1065724/
The seller has not responded.
I have an old friend about 40-miles down the road from there, but as my luck would have it, he's away on vacation.
I got the seller to ship!
It's Ron Morris with Penske shocks.
sorry having a hard time navigating this site
Gonna bring this thread back to the top
My 21 yr old son bought this one yesterday
So we will be back on here with a lot of questions
Little rough around the edges but a good starting point
VIN says it was factory V8
Currently has a 302 with a lumpy cam
Automatic with a floor shifter
And AC that doesn’t quite blow cold enough
Manual disc brakes on the front
Missing a lot of parts from the interior , dash is hacked up around the radio
Has some mods to the suspension
Trying to figure out what exactly
She's a beauty!
I’d drive it! Good looking wagon. Congratulations

So I'm hunting down a set of headliner bows for a '62 Falcon.
Can anyone confirm if they're the same as the ones in a '62 Mercury Comet?
If anyone has a set for a Falcon.....I'm interested.
Can anyone provide a picture of the engine bay brake line routing from the m/cylinder? I have a t-piece and brake light switch (not shown) as well as the split union as pictured, all of which came off it, but can’t figure out which lines are T’d where.
Does the rear come off one outlet on the master and the fronts off the other? Or does it not matter?
63 Falcon by the way
Right side feeds rear brakes, front port feeds front by going to a splitter. Brake light switch on top port. Best I can remember.
Mines other way round. Pressure sensor is on the bottom. But yeah. One to the rear and a spilt fitting to the front for left and right.

Thanks guys, that's great. Just wanted to be sure before bending any brake lines
its been ten years... any thoughts on how this mod could be done?
Next silly question: what size brake unions are these? I’ve discovered they’re not 3/8 - 24 / UNF....
I would source a second taillight opening and put it on a hinge from a gas door. Mount the taillight on that. Reroute the filler pipe up to the center of the opening. The original quarter panel opening will have to be enlarged but must retain the ring section to maintain its shape. Coming up with a latch is another job
