I did not know the letters FALCON were on the quarter panel.

Assuming this is factory ........
Typically letter emblems of that era are a pin and barrel arrangement.
The emblems have a pin and they engage a barrel clip that is in the sheet metal.
If correct those emblems are removed by gently prying up the emblem from the back side of the emblem.
Gently pry up in multiple locations until the emblem has fully disengaged the clips.

The letter on the quarter panel are part of the body side molding based on the MPC Illustrations. (See attached)
Post a picture of the inside of the quarter panel with any decorative liner removed.

The hood letters use the pin and barrel as described above.
Each letter has 2 pins. The pin engages the barrel clip in the hood.
The barrel clip is Ford part · 375890-S (shown as item F in the attached)

I have a 65 Futura and those letters were put through the metal piece that is surrounded by the chrome and the small studs were peened over before it was put on the car and the chrome placed around it. Let me know if you find any of these as my car needs them too
