Can you tell me is the dirty bird heavier than a fox body ?
it should end up being lighter. i had a 71 maverick years ago and fully dressed (no lightening efforts) it weighed 2800# with me in the car and a full tank... now, i weigh a little more now, :surprise: but it should still be an improvement since the falcon is basically what the maverick was based on.

Any updates? I know the weather has ruined some progress with some folks.

i wish i had more to share, but like you mentioned the weather has not helped things, plus busy time at work, remodel project on the house AND getting dark at 6pm SUCKS! i dont have a garage, so all my work is outside :frown2:. the parts are stacking up on me, ive now got all the parts for the front suspension completion (brakes, ect), almost all the ignition system and alot of the fuel system, new floor pans, new hobart 140 mig and sand blaster... everything is sitting and waiting until the "tumblers to fall into place".

Sounds about right. Not to hijack your thread but Ive been buying parts left and right. Decided to do a little black friday shopping on LMR and picked up a whole rear end setup. Rear end should hold better once its setup. Im like you no garage. I just have Have a place to store the car and then go work on it when time permits. But i was able to pull my shortblock out finally and i pulled it apart. I think its ready for the machine shop. I think my stock cam is trash. Theres some good wear marks. Maybe ed curtis can set me up with a good cam. Sucks not having a garage. A heated/cooled garage would be sweet right about now

Thanks guys. I had to modify one of the mounts, but they came as a part of the front end kit.

well... things kind of went sideways on the falcon... the cancer in the floor was worse than i had anticipated, so i removed all my stuff and sold the car as i bought it. thats the bad news. the good news is, i put everything in a 76 F100 and since my last post (over 2 yrs ago) it is taking shape nicely!
