tube grills are still available for these falcons, but a simple nose and deck job plus moderate lowering is all that is usually needed cuz compared to late model ford offerings these sedans look custom.

Make ya own for around $60 out of chrome curtain rod and the brackets to suit, i made one for a Val sedan in 2hrs once and everyone thought it was a Cal-Custom original.

TUBE GRILLS for falcons...

J.W Enterprises (customgrills.com) in the states DID make Falcon tube grills once, but now they don't cause the problem is the headlight surround is joined to the grill. Personally since your enquiring about a store bought item i hesitate to believe you may lack the skills needed to build your own grill, so here are a few options that will bolt in, either left stock or altered with minor trim removal.

Canadian frontenac 1960?, i think they were a one year option but as different as a edsel grill.

American falcon, squire and ranchero used grill options not available in Australia.

ARGENTINIAN Falcon they made these from 62 - 92 and 1970 isn't a bad grill but the frontend altered after these to accomadate later square light arrangements, scope em all out and also the taillight setups cause these were cool and most are bolt-in tho you would need to get the whole setup like light surrounds and grill..

Purchase is as easy as bidding on e-bay.


Falcon 15" 4stud smoothies?? i'd ask on the H.A.M.B. or tha U.S falcon forum.

try antiquetyres.com.au - they have 14's , might have 15's too, be warned though that I have heard there is lowering issues with 15's in terms of clearance. Might have to go bags and chassis mods in the rear to make it work....supposedly anyways. I am new to the falcon game!

15's look to big in the diametre (size) with medium sized cars , i know there big by todays pipsqueek sized shopping trolleys, but early holdens and early falcons have small wheelarches and big rims can give em a Keith Weesner type cartoon look from side on.
R,S,AP5&6,and VC valiant+ can get away with em for some reason.

nothing wrong with the cartoon look art that keith weesner does, ive seen some copy cars of his work and they look sweet, i gess you just have to be into that type of stuff but.
I recived the wheels yesterday and i got some center bullet caps and they stick out about 3 inches, its going to look sick. wide White wall tyres should be a couple weeks away. I picked up some tri star hubs also, but i want to drill out the center and put some bullets in the center also. I also picked up some sweet polished tube bars to do a tube grill.

Those tri-bar caps sound like 56 Oldsmobile Fiesta hubcaps, i have some early ribbed tri-bar 13" accesory hubcaps on my 56 dodge and it runs 14" rims so i just pop revited the 13's into 14" trim rings from behind.
Mate i dig the hotrod cartoon look of Kieth Weesner theres a weesner clone on the H.A.M.B. of his Emerald Tide P.U. you should scope it out
its completely scratchbuilt. My own channeled 5w lowboy coupe is styled along the lines of WEESNER ARTWORK.

Prob need to do a bit more research with your prices. Your ebay starting prices were way off the mark.

Why are you selling all your gear anyways?
