Glad to find thi forum! Recently bought a 63 a Falcon Futura Convertable for my son and I to restore for a daily driver when he turns 16. Needs the usual body work you would expect for a car from the upper Midwest. Since it runs our initial focus is engine, transmission and breaks.

Look forward to learning from the forum.

Glad you found this place.
I used a product called Rustmort? It seems to neutralize rust from what I remember and got it at the auto paint supply store. You still have to patch holes though but moderate surface rust it takes care of well.
