That's one sweet looking falcon! I love the shaved bumpers. I'm glad you posted a pic of the back, as I am interested what you did there. Good job!
I am also very interested in your front bag set up as well,as I will be there very soon on my 62 wagon. I have the air ride system with the built-in shock for the front. I was going to cut out the top of my shock tower and make a higher cup for the bag and shock mount.
I am almost finished building my three link for the rear and am ready just about to mount the bags. I am also planning on running 15 inch steelies. Do you know what a good rim width and tire height would be? I may also go with Astro Supremes and white walls. Does anyone know a good source for these wheels? I have to decide this week so I can get moving. Decisions decisions!

Well a lot has gotten done!!! Including me almost killing my self by inhaling to much filler dust as i sanded in the car with no respirator but lets not dwell on things in the past. Hopefully pics this weekend. Got everything filled and smoothed out. Going to pull the springs and lower the front on saturday. Installed pertronix and a flame thrower coil, what a difference !!!

looks awesome, but don't forget to protect yourself! Where are you going to put the fuel filler?

Installed the radio in the glove box, and got one of the custom autosound speaker for the dash sounds real nice for the price.
