Are you talking the parts that are spot-welded to the floor pans, or sub-frame connectors to connect the front frame rails to the rear frame rails? Falcons don't really have frames, per se, being a unibody car (some call it unit body, since the body and the frame rails that do exist are one unit), so it's not clear whether you are needing to replace some rusted-out parts or not. If you have rusted out parts, I'm not sure these are available in the after-market. You're going to have to keep your eyes out for another car to scavenge from, or someone who's parting one out.

Patrick has a set on his `62 and I think he got them from a company called Global West. I would google that and see what you get. He seemed pretty happy with the fit and quality.

I know of the Art Morrison stuff. They ahve a complete rolling chassis that retrofits uni-body cars to full frame cars. It requires that alll the sheet metal be removed from between the rockers and tabs welded on. Careful measurements must be gathers from the car. These are all one-off items and are big dollars.

I have the Global West sub-frame connectors on my 62. They fit well and noticilly tightened up the chassis. These weld in between the front and rear factory frame rails.
