63 Falcon Side Moulding clips

Post #1 by pikesan » Sun Dec 11, 2011 1:07 am

Is it real or only fantasy that the 63 Falcon service manual says how many and what size moulding clips are needed for a 4 door wagon?
I have a few to match up, and I guess I could count, but it'd be nice to know exactly what clips I needed.

Anyone already been through this?

I also have the same question for floor plugs, but those are easier to measure and count...

:hmmm: It would need to be a "body assembly manual" to see how its installed and in the service parts book for quanity and part numbers.

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

:hmmm: Sure once in awhile will see an original one for sale. But you can also get a reprint, here is one source for them

Got the Falcon Body assembly manual as suggested. Here's the deal:

On my Model 71 Wagon there are 4 clips types needed:
A (these use a nut) C3DB-6220876 - used on the front of the back door - need 2 per side
B (most of the clips are this kind) C2DB-6429120-C - need 17 or 19 per side (depending on if you have the stock location gas cap) - probably just get 17 and if one's missing per side, I bet you could get away with it
C C3DB-6220994-A1(these use a screw) - used on back of front and rear door need 2 per side
D C2DB-6421094-A1 (screw in around the gas cap) I'm using a RH molding cause I moved the gas cap up on top of the fender. - need 2 per side

I hope I got these right, this is what I'm going to try and find since my clips are almost completely missing!

Hope this helps someone.

I think these are the "B" clips I need, but not sure...

I think I could use these too...
