falcon tubbing?

Post #1 by hipdqwik » Tue Dec 03, 2002 12:54 am

Does anyone have pictures or advice on tubbing a 62 falcon sedan? I want to fit some decent meats back there but I'm lost as to what I'm getting myself into. I would like to hear from anyone who has done this with a 9 inch and maybe some price quotes, or even pictures. Thanks in advance, hipDqwik@msn.com

8) how large a tire are you planning on using? if you are going to use a relatively normal size then you dont need to install tubs. if however you are planning to use something like a 14" wide mickey thompson tire, then you not only need tubs, but to relocate the inner frame rails. jegs, summit racing, and chris alston chassis works carry wheel tubs and rear subframe kits that relocate the frame rails and suspension.

Unless you are going to be really wide moving the sub frames is not needed.

Measured my '65 between the fender and frame there enough room for a +/- 11" wide tire. It would take a partial tub, not to make wide or bigger, but to replace the rounded inboard top of the wheel wells . So with the right wheels you should easily run 10" wides.

Ya mean like this:

Check out Don's site - he not only tubbed his car but transplanted a nicely built 351-C.
