Welcome aboard, lots of good information here...have you got any pictures? Would love to see some of the Tri-power inline six.

Beuatiful car, I love the slots, kinda period correct. I'm not known to be a huge Ford fan but have always loved the Falcons and Comets, very nice looking ride and clean as well, how was the body, it sure looks great in the picture.

I have had to replace both full floorpans ( due to leaking cowl ) and have the typical falcon / mustang problem problem areas, door corners, cowl and rear fender lip but for the most part in fair shape for it's age. I will tackle the doors first, then the cowl and save the rear fender lips for last.

Well the car does look good and well worth it, I don't know how much experience you have but if you need any information on paint and body, I'd be happy to help.

First off, let me say that is very impressive! What transmission in it and what rear-end gear ratio? Do you know the total weight of the car and do you plan on taking it to the strip, if only to see what it will run?

Bill ,thanks, I run a stock c/4 with a 3.20 gear, I think the car weighs in around 2,700 without driver. I have made a few passes untuned and went 10.57 at 61 M.P.H. in the 1/8th with a bit of wheel spin. not a barn burner but enough to have a little fun. The roadrunner had a fresh 318 with a RV cam, edelbrock intake and carb and full length headers.

Still respectable for a six, I like the fact that it'd not your typical small block 289 or 302...wouldn't be scared to open the hood at any A&W.

64falconsix 01-03-2013 10:40 PM

Yeah ....to say the least the cruise nights are interesting. The little six gets plenty of attention.

With more info (shift RPM and tire diameter and your RPM going through the traps) I could probably recommend a gear ratio to get you well into the nines in the eighth, but you wouldn't want to run the quarter mile. Also, you might think about using a better tire, at the track.
