Hello..

My wife has a 63 Falcon 4 door 6 cyl. I want to change over to v8. Rear axle and front end ect.. I have an opportunity to get a 64 Falcon that is a v8 car. Other than body, Are the other parts interchangeble? The rear end as well as front end parts? The 64 car is equiped with power assist steering. What parts do I need to get off donor car to make the swap? Steering column/steering box?

I'm not picking up the whole car as I have no way to transport it back, so I want to be sure I get all the parts I need at the time I go there.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks, Rob

hmmmmm...hopefully the same stuff i needed when i switched my maverick over to a v/8:
motor mounts. the frame mounts that the motor mounts bolt onto. the transmission mount. the radiator. accelerator cable as well as all the stuff to attach it to the v/8. snag the radiator also. as far as the power steering stuff goes, it is your call. our mav had a 200 inline with manual EVERYTHING. we kept the manual steering. kinda sucks while parallel parking but aside from that we like the road feel of manual steering. the front springs is a good idea because of the heavier engine. may as well snag the tranny too. there is some kind of little harness from the v/8 car maybe. my mav had one. If i think of anything else, i'll post more later. best of luck

Rob,

Welcome to M&M - great site with lots of help. I don't have info on the Falcons but I'm sure there are lots of others who will pitch in and answer your questions.
