I'm looking for a good source for 1961 Falcon fiberglass. I need a one-piece frontend and doors. Thanks

Can't get either link to work Mike. They both come up as "web page can't be found". US Body is crazy high priced for their stuff, so I hope it's hand laid! They don't show a one piece frontend, but do have fenders and hoods that could be glassed together.

Another source is Unlimited, but they don't have a great reputation for nice fiberglass parts.
Nobody seems to make a one piece frontend for our early Falcons anymore.

Try just the showcars-bodyparts connect you have, they have a one piece front end for $889 (60-62). Also have a front end wrap (dont know what that is) for 64-65.

Thanks Mike. Took me awhile to figure out how to find their catalog. Wonder what the difference is between '61 and '63 with a glass frontend? The grilles are different, but I don't know them well enough to see the differences otherwise. Unless it's just the bump and fake "scoop" on the hood?

I'm not sure Vall. I thought 60-63 were all pretty close in looks. I'm sure there is some Ford folks out there that can school us non-believers in Ford lore. :)

The 1960-63 frontends are all very close. I could work work with a 62 or 63. Thanks for the help with this.

This is what they are referring to as a "wrap". Frontend, minus the hood, but with the grille:

I just got a reply from these folks to an inquiry i sent them. The prices on their site are incorrect, as they state $879 for the one piece frontend, and it's actually $1095. Shipping estimate to me was $325 on top, so I doubt I'll shell out that coin for a glass frontend. I may consider building a mold and making a glass frontend later, if I get bored or tired of tilting the steel!

I did some research and found a lot of complants about that company. So I guess I'll pass and the search is still on.
