63 1/2 falcon outer wheelhouses/wheel wells needed
« on: Dec 30, 2014, 08:54:02 PM »

Working on the rear quarter panels of my dad's 63 1/2 falcon and found that it needs the outer wheel wells replaced.  Are there any aftermarket pieces available?  I've heard that the pieces available for a 65/66 mustang may work, can anyone verify that?  If those two options are out, anyone know of a good source for "used" panels?   Thanks, I'm new to the forum and need help.

Hi Welcome to the forum.

I looked for years and never could find any good used parts to replace my rear wheel wells and 1/4 panels. I'm not sure about the 65 66 Mustang inner and outer wheel wells working on a Falcon and I can't be sure that they make reproduction parts for the 1960 to 63 Falcon. I ended up getting front and rear 1/4 panels from Macs and making inner and outer wheel wells from a 4'X8' sheet of metal I bought at a machine shop I used to work at. I have include some pics. of what I had to deal with before and after shots. I have more pics. if you want to see them email me.
