:shift: Hello to all. I'm looking forward to being here. My wife and I just bought a 63 Sprint,We have been looking for one for a few years now and found one last month.It is red on red with a four speed.Buckets and a console. I will need a few things to make it a real nice car. Thats where you people come in. I have been restoring Mustangs for years and have always wanted a 63 Sprint. So now we have one and the fun begins. Thanks for having us hope to talk to you soon

Hey don't go stringing us along... we need pictures! Sounds like a really cool car. I am from the Tri Cities. I have a few stock suspension part that might work for you. Let me know if you need anything or would just like some spare parts... I don't need them and my wife would love to see them go away. Then she might get to park back in the garage:bicker:.
We have a really nice car show here at the end of July (I think)... Cool Desert Nights. Come on down.
Welcome and hope to see ya around.

Thanks guys. I was told about the show when we picked up our Sprint.We were told it is going to be this summer.I think it will be in August.It is seven hours from Spokane But the drive was fun.Highway 97 can be a pain in the winter. We got lucky and the trip went great.We had the car taken to Bend from San Diego and I trailered it to Spokane.:)

I'd love to hear more info about the Pacific regional..

Nothings set in stone yet but the 2008 Pacific Falcon Regional may be in conjunction with the Ford Fever Show at the Woodburn dragstrip in Oregon. The date would be August 16. As soon as there's more information, I'll start a new thread in the Events and Announcements section.

63 grills pop on e-bay once in a while, usually not cheap though.
There is a place down in Ca or maybe Az that refurbishes grills, also not cheap. like $500.

Kenny,
I was thinking that the 08 regional would be held at Dearbon Classics.. I kinda put 2n2 together...Let's hope things get set in stone soon.. I'd love to start planning my next car show agenda.. This cold snowy winter is driving me nuts.. I can't even get my falcon out of the driveway. It's Icy..

I'd love to take a car to the show.. long drive for my birds, but myybe I'll have one ready by then..

I'd love to find a wagon by then...

I know where there is a 63 wagon for sale for 600.00 I was going to buy it for the grill. Then sell the rest of the car. I should see if it is still there.

63nhalf,

I passed on a 62 last summer. a maroon one with ghost flames.
I know where a 61 wagon is..

Kinda curious what $600 gets you.. Is that wagon here local?

I know where a nice 64 or 65 is, but he wont sell..

Modified17,

I am looking for $50 plus any shipping fees.
I can send pictures if you are interested.

It's striaght no dings or bends. Needs a good cleaning and a polish..

I tried e-baying it and no one was interested. So i was thinking about having it chrome plated..
