1963 1/2 Falcon Convertible Project Starting this Winter

Post #1 by CoupeBoy » Sat Nov 19, 2011 1:46 pm

And as such I will be randomly posting as much pertinent Falcon articles as possible. Mostly so I can easily refer to them. I'm trying to decide if I should post up this stuff on here or start my own blog/website for my brain dumps.

Mine is going to be built with a nod toward the look of the historic Trans Am cars. I like the look of the blacked out torque thrust type wheels on this car.

Nice smooth looking old bird with aftermarket gauges (I do not dig the hood scoop, very 80's tacky if you ask me)

I like a lot of what this guy has going on
Mustang leaf springs, converted gauge cluster
1960 Ford Falcon Two Door Sedan - Racetrack Raptor

But I am not a fan of the modern looking seats, rims, and steering wheel, to me they just look out of place

This one has a nice look to it with the blacked out hood and deck lid, but again. For mine I am going to go with a light base color (white or silver) and a black 'blanket' on the top of the car (probably from the upper body like UP) to blend with the convertible top. again I am not a fan of the 'modern' front end or motor treatment

Can't forget about this one either.. its got the right color (on the outside) a good stance (maybe a tad high in the rear) and a wicked six (I will not be discussing engine choices for my bird as it never was nor will be a six)

Then why are you posting this on a six forum?

Why not here http://www.tffn.net ?

The owner of that particular forum is a very interesting character and after a bref encounter with him a couple years ago I will not be going back. Interesting fact for you though. I have not had a licensed/driveable inline fordsix since I joined here in 2002. I come here to share ideas about these cars and provide basic information about fordsixes. I do have a project that was slated to be next (now) , '67 Mustand with a 250/AOD but that again is taking a back burner for this pproject (this one means more to Dad than my '67 does to me)

Don't you worry though, everything I poston here will be applicable to i6 and bent motors as the actual engine will not be discussed.

If it will make you happy I will swap in my 250 for a shake down run and some photo ops.
