Does anyone know of a company besides Global West that makes subframe connectors for Falcons? I like the Global West units but not the extra $80 over the Mustangs price. Could they be "massaged" to fit?

thanks

tomstir...Not sure if the Global West Mustang ones can be fitted or not...it's one of those Mustang-Falcon mystery things that we all seem to want to know if the parts are interchangeable!

Dearborn Classics www.dearbornclassics.com
1-800-252-7427 has USA made weld in ones for 1960-65 Falcons for $99.95. Part#SFC100.

Yea..I should have mentioned that I looked at those already and didn't like the photo that they had. I was going to call and talk to someone about them. I was originaly going to buy from Delta Bay Mustang but they didn't have any in stock and I figured it would take a long time (past experience with them) to be made. But I was pleasantly surprised when I recieved a call telling me that they were in!!!! I am going to drive up there later today to pick them up. Thanks for the help.

They fit well. No altering needed. I removed the fuel/brake lines from the frame to get room to clean the frame off....I think it will be enough to weld. Tubes are 1.75 so they don't hang down too far.
