I know the spindles will interchange with the early Mustangs and did the Fairlane not have the same suspension as the Mustangs and Falcons?

well i'm not sure. I have noticed that some of the kits for 64 fairlanes do not work on 63's, but i don't know why. I do know a lot of mustang parts will interchange, but will this work????

this is a post I found on another board...............joe




The front disc brake system off the Ford Granada series will interchange with your 63 Ford Fairlane drum brake system. Use the Granada disc brake spindles, disc and calipers to replace you drum brakes spindles and drums.
The Granada spindles are a bolt in replacement for the 63's drum spindles and you should replace the 63's master cylinder with a split master cylinder off the same model year Granada as the disc brake system you use. I would suggest you upgrade to a powder assisted (PA) master cylinder (much easier to find than the non-powder assisted master cylinder) You can use a PA master cylinder off a Mustang II if space in the engine compartment is a problem.
FYI, new or remanufactured PA master cylinder and new flexible brake lines are fairly inexpensive and are more reliable than junk-yard parts. When you step on the brakes, you want to be sure you can stop.
If you want to go all out, you can re-plump your brake system to the split brakes system used on all newer cars,
Good luck

Powder-assisted, for explosive braking force!
