Re: Update on me.

Good to see you back in the hunt Mike!
I used an Unlimited Products fiberglass tear drop hood scoop and front bumper on my Falcon. Both were pretty nice as received.
They make a ton of different style hood scoops http://up22.com/scoopw1.htm

Re: Road Race 64 Falcon

So here's my other project: Back in May I bought a pair of Falcons. Both 6 cylinder hardtop 64s. I parted the really rusty one that was complete and the less bad one I'm keeping. The plan- build a road race type machine with mostly vintage parts. Solid lifter 289, Toploader 4 speed and 8 inch rear....

Re: Doug's 65 Cyclone build

On my track Falcon I punched a hole in the rear trunk panel and ran the battery cable forward alongside the right side rocker. It’s covered in a black Heatshield protective wrap. At the firewall I punched another hole and the cable runs forward next to the shock tower to the starter solenoid. I used...

Re: 64 Falcon Track Car

Sure enough Fred. I’m planning on going back in October. I’d like to get a GoPro and have it cage mounted by then.

Re: 64 Falcon Track Car

Wow! Love the elevation changes. Up somewhere around the top it looks like you might get a bit of air? Too bad about the "slow" cars in front of you! Fred Hey Fred! Yeah that track is very fast and the elevation changes make it pretty exciting. Coming out of the 5th turn you climb and at the top yo...

Re: 64 Falcon Track Car

Ran the Falcon again this weekend. 2 days and it ran great. A small issue with steering wheel shake on Saturday. Sunday morning I isolated it to a little looseness in the roller idler arm. Tightened the nut and the shake went away. Here’s a YouTube video of a slow couple of passenger laps. They said...

Re: New here! 65 comet!

Hey Slowburn if you’re talking about the nut on top of the steering gearbox be careful with that. You could go from loose steering to a destroyed steering gear if you tighten it too much.
