We just purchased a 1962 Ford Falcon with the 170 6cyl and 3 speed on the tree.
Joined the group hoping to find ideas and information. Especially on swapping the 3 speed to an automatic transmission.
Looking forward to all

Welcome to the forum awcoyote66, and good luck on your 62 Falcon build. :thumbup: :nod:

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.

The 62 Falcon is a good one to have I learned to drive in one that was a family car. It had the 170 and column shift also. I do not know much about your trans swap other than it would be a c4 most likely. However I can recommend getting a copy of the Falcon Performance Handbook it will provide lots of ideas and information. You will see what a great resource and value it is.
66 Bronco-1970 250, NV3550, DSII, 4 turn ps, uncut, 1" bl, 2.5" sl, front disc, twin stick D 20, 30 x 9.50
NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

New guy? Get the Falcon Performance Handbook and Ford six high performance parts from https://vintageinlines.com
