Why not just change the whole hood?
The front lip is different and it won't interface with a '60-'61 grille.
The most surprising thing about that Falcon is the fact that someone went through the trouble to make it a five lug.
After health problems forced me to give up on the Anxious gasser Anglia i purchased this cool ride.....
302 and c4 auto
that's a fullsize car for England, isn't it? did you get it converted to rhd?
I figured id post this up here, hopefully ill get some response. I took the grill and headlight trim off my 68 falcon and the damn tabs that the screws go into fell apart, i dont have a single good one. Where the hell can i order some before i attempt to rig something up.
Oh yea, does anybody make sheet metal parts for the later falcons? looking for a fender and possibly some other stuff.
This was my 61 Falcon Before I sold it. I miss this car.
Where is Grantsboro NC ??? Would that be greensboro NC ?
I have posted pics of my car in progress on here before,but a friend of did this photoshop for me and I cannot wait to work on the car now!I get giddy as a school girl everytime I look at this picture.This is what gearheads call hotrod porn.
i get that all the time, grantsboro is right around new bern. I work down at MCAS Cherry Point.
Have you checked www.dennis-carpenter.com, www.falconparts.com, www.macsautoparts.com?
I like that a lot! Well done.
Try googling 'Rare Spares'.
I just got the motor and tranny set in, im going back out to my man cave.
My youngest son just put his 64 on the road this evening, he did most ALL of this car himself including rebuilding the 302 he swapped in place of the 6, replacing both rear quarters, welding up the trim holes, body, paint, and buffing.
I am pretty stoked with what he has done with it, he turns 21 on Saturday...
I have been waiting to post this in the "Falcons done right" thread for a while now...
here is my comet so far, i have been going for the mild kustom thing, everything is shaved, all emblems, reverse lights, 5.60 13's gold top gloss black body, im gonna put the chrome on soon, block and bag the back and then lace paint on top and maybe watson style scallops and stuff, the inside is white tuck n' roll with 1 inch pleats and shiny gold piping, also putting in the engine out of FLAKED62MERC's in soon, im gonna paint it gloss black with gold pinstriping, but not too cluttered, it has fishtail tips I got off a shovelhead at a swapmeet but might do bellflower tips after i do my exhaust. here are some pics so far, still have a ways to go. this is my daily driver for school, work, commute etc.
Looks like your son has done an out-standing job on his 64. If i was close to you'll i would show him how to make custom door panels. All in all very ,very good job. tell him to keep up the good work.

Love the sedan delivery, had a 62 in late 69-70 with a hopped up 260 and 4-speed, 2-v carb. Engine came out of a 63 comet that was ntl. reacord holder in P-stock for years. Come to find out ,it had a roller cam in it and no one ever caught it during a protest.
Give a Fat-Back sandwich if i still had it or one like it.
