Hey guys have a 1964 Falcon Futura the needs the steering box (non-power if it matters) either rebuilt or replaced. Have heard that I should got to a '65 steering box for parts are easier to find; is this true? Any other suggestions? Thx

I have a used 64 Sprint (V8) box complete with steering arm and column but than you need to use the V8 tie rods too. Your box can be rebuilt too. You might make sure your tie rod ends and idler arm are in good condition sometimes it's thought the steering box is bad when it's really the idler arm and or tie rods that are worn out. The 65 Falcon steering geometry was improved this is in the center link and the tie rod lengths, Not sure there was much of a difference in the steering box but the safest way to do swaps and be sure everything is compatible is of course is to swap everything together, IE the box, steering arm, idler arm, center link, and all the tie rods. Good luck

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.

I had mine rebuilt by CJ Automotive in South Gate, Ca.
They only charged $125 at the time, about 3-4 years ago.
They do a lot of rebuilds and have massive stock in the back room
Turn around time was only a couple of days. Ask them to rush.
