    I agree with that. In my ideal world, I always have a driver and a project.

    Otherwise you're either too tempted to mess with the driver to have something to do, or you are without something fun to drive.

    Looks good as it sits to me. Sounds like it's time to buy another car to build!

    i agree wholeheartedly!

    i was just looking for ideas. i will definitely be lowering it a couple inches in the rear and probably picking up some lancer hubcaps.

    As stated above...Thank you for serving this great country !
    As to to your "Bird"...it is really sweet as is, but you did ask, so my comments would be maybe a wheel change, and upgrade any safety issues...
    Other than that, spend some $$$ touring this country in it !!!
    Cheers.......

    Thanks, I already put disks up front and I put a 5 speed in it. So a long ass drive is what's in store for it when I get home.

    Whoops lol. I missed The post that said it already has a 5 speed and discs. I was gonna say maybe interior but From The little i can see in The pics it looks nice already. Have you thought about Air ride at all? maybe start on some subtle body mods

    If you were really feeling crazy, I've always wondered how a Falcon sedan might look chopped with a hardtop/convertible windshield (two inches shorter than sedan/wagon) and the rear window laid down a bit.
     
  11. That's precisely what a 1963 1/2 Falcon is.
    Of the 100,000 Falcons built in 1963, the last 10,000 were registered as a 63 1/2. This model had a 63 body and a 64 roofline, 2 inches shorter, raked windshield and no B pillars.

    there are a number of these falcons in our are. the guys all started with upgrading the suspensions, fresh wheels and tires. small block fords of yur pick. these cars all look like they could embrass a bunch of high dollar sport and muscle cars. light cars with high revving small blocks. that can turn and stop. they look way fun. as your car does also . thanks for your time overseas. figure out what you want the car to do. be a cruiser or fast. then build it that direction

    First off thanks for your service without guys like you we couldnt do the thing we do now.
    The car just needs a couple of things. Its own garage attached to the house you can buy with the saved money. Next a wash and wax, gas and like others have suggested a long derserved drive for you so you can see what you have protected.
    stay save and welcome home........

    Low and level is where it's at for a Fordor. Looks great.

    Enjoy the cruising!
