Falcon defroster ducts

Post #1 by michael_cini » Mon Oct 25, 2010 1:28 am

I need new defroster ducts for my '63 Falcon. I went to all of the local stores, and no one has duct that size :bang: I got online tonight and found the ducts from Falconparts.com for $35.00. Then I decided to check for the pricing of '65 Mustang ducts, and found a couple for around $20. From the pics they appear the same, does anyone know if they are indeed the same? Thanks.

The 64 Falcon and the ..65 Mustang are the same....
The clips that hold them to the dash may be slightly different but will work just fine..

I used Mustang ducts on my '60 because the ducts wasn’t being reproduced when I needed them. The fit is not perfect but I made them work. The Mustang ducts, different part number, have a smaller funnel and the clips do not align up to the holes in the dash. http://www.melvinsclassicfordparts.com has the 60-65 Falcon defrost hose and ducts listed for $25 in their online catalog. I'm sure this might be an old price. Having the correct part that fits will be worth the extra $5-$10 in my book.

thanks for all of the advice guys. i ended up calling melvin's and the price had gone up to $34. i bought them anyway. at least on this project i thought it would be nice not to have to wrestle with the wrong parts.
