    Can any of you suggest where I can find some good quality rear quarter panels or repair panels for my 1964 Falcon Convertible? Also, need a pair of rear outer wheel wells. The wheel openings on both sides are solid bondo from previous repairs. Thanks, Harold

    There are quite a few Falcon parts suppliers that deal in sheet metal such as Auto Krafters, Mac's Antique Auto parts and of course Dearborn Classics out of Bend, Oregon (who are great to work with). All should have what you are looking for.

    Hope that helps!

    XxStrait-EdgexX,

    LOL! lucky you, my '65 sedan it's share of rust here and there...but that is what you get with a beach car (Originally from Longbeach, WA..spent 12-15 years there. Purchased in Astoria, OR). Owned my '65 since 2001 and put her into "retirement" from daily use 2 years ago. Started pulling her apart now to fix the rust and hop-up the drive train a bit :D

    The problem I am running into is that all the above suppliers only have repair panels for the back half of the wheel opening on the 64/65 Falcon. The only way to get the full wheel opening is to purchase a complete rear quarter patch panel that is pricey and of questionable quality from what I've been told.

    Same here so I am using some 18 gauge and making the patches myself for the rear wells.I also might ned a rear quarter for my driver's side.Was rear ended back in 87 and it never got fixed.If you find a place send me a pm if you don't mind and I will do the same if I run into anything.
    Thanks,
    Muncie

    That is my problem, I can't seem to find a supplier for the front half rear wheel opening repair panel for a 64/65 Falcon.

    XxStrait-EdgexX,

    It has the original 6 in it now, and I intend to keep it (I love those lil' 6's and heard the ol' "you should drop a 302 in it" comment to many times). I plan to hop-up the 6 with an aluminum head/pistons, tri-power ( a set of 97's) and possibly a supercharger. The old 3-speed will be switched out in favor of a T-10 Borg Warner and will be connected to a 8" rear end. I plan to keep the body and interior fairly stock. I will definately be at the swap meet!

     
  15. Damn, you've got the same plans as me.....

    Correction to my last post...I found a left rear...still need a right rear.

    Found a rust free origianl pair from Colirado on eBay that were being sold seperately. Got outbid on the right side at the last minute!

    Bumping this one up because I'm working on a customer car with quarters they purchased and the quality is terrible. Anybody have any suggestions for 64/65 Falcon quarter panels that are decent quality?
