Hey, all! We'll be looking at a '63 Falcon and take in as next project. Got to gain as much knowledge and just glad to found this community. I'll be reading around

The six cylinder cars are easily converted to V8. The 63 1/2 came with a 260CID. Not common. Most people find newer 302s and drop them in. They look the same. If you want something to keep completely stock then search for an unmolested 63 1/2 Falcon Sprint with a 4 speed.

Good luck with your project and welcome.

Also, I discovered all 63.5 Hardtops have torque-boxes even when they came with a 6 cylinder. That's good. So you can swap to an 8 using all 1965 V8 suspension parts (except for leaf springs). Just beware a V8 car to make sure all wheels are 5-lug.

Saw a 63 2 door for sale at the Old Steel car show in Yakima this morning. 170 6 cyl, manual transmission. New windshield and upholstery is nice. Reportedly everything works. Will need a paint job for sure. Send me a private message if you want the phone number of the seller.
