69 Falcon wagon. Is it a uni-body like Mustangs, Mavericks etc? Are parts from the above mentioned interchangeable or does it have lots of model specific parts? Where are the trouble spots to look for?
Thanks a ton guys,,,,,,,and gals.

Yes, it's a unibody, and it shares a good amount of drivetrain and suspension parts with other models.

Hey Jerry-

The Maverick was largely based on the 1969 Falcon, in fact the entire front suspension in the 69.5 Mavericks, among other things, was identical to the Falcon. So that means lots of parts will interchange as assemblies, and many of the same modifications can be done.

Thanks for all the good info guys. I think I'll stick with the 2 Mavs for now but it's a nice little wagon from the pics.
Thanks again,
