Re: 64 Falcon Road Racer

It’s pretty tight with the 225s out back, I had to flare both sides and I see a little tire rub from cornering.
I considered mini tubs but decided it would be outside the main plan for this car. I’m just having fun and the tires are wide enough to scare hell out of me when need be. :lol:

Re: 64 Falcon Road Racer

Hey Joe- Are you running 205/60- 15s on 7" wheels? Thanks Joe II Hey Joe, the tires and wheels in the pics are a set of street tires I got off a buddy that sold his Mustang. They are 205/60- 15 front and 225/60 rears. And yes they are 15X7 Americans. The Hoosier race tires I’m using are 225s on 15X...

Re: 64 Falcon Road Racer

Getting the Falcon ready for an October track event. Swapped out the 4 speed cast iron tail housing for an aluminum one with the later style wide mount pad. Allows me to use a polyurethane isolator… and it’s super light :D Adjusting valves and timing as well. And took it for a test drive out in the ...

Re: Joe's '63 1/2 Tinkering Thread

Hey Joe! The ethanol and other additives in the gas out here in CA is tough on my Comets 4100 as well. I had an accelerator pump harden and leak a couple months ago. And it seems to leave a gummy residue all over the place. Let’s see how long this rebuild lasts. Last one wasnt too bad, its been abou...

Re: 65 MPH Speedo - interchangeable with Mustang?

I think the speedo numbers font is different between a Mustang and Comet. The face can be swapped though.

Re: Accelerator pedal

I used a 65/66 Mustang gas pedal bell crank on my 64 Falcon. I ended up cutting the upper arm to change the angle and I had to bend the lower arm to get the pedal height just right. Also I mounted it just to the right of the original gas pedal linkage opening (and I installed a small plate to block ...
