Hey Y'all

I just bought a 1965 2 door Falcon sedan. It's a driving restoration project and needs a ton of work. I can find almost all the trim online except the chrome trim around the windshield. Need the small corner peice over the top driver side windshield Trim. Does anyone offer those in reproduction or new old stock? Thanks..

Does Falconparts.com not have anything? Your best bet may be to search CraigsList for a Falcon being parted out or sold really cheap. Try Craiglook.com to search across the US for the part.

Thanks for the ideas. I really don't have room to store a parts car, so I will just have to buy the parts I need as I need them I suppose. I'll check Craigslist. I've been watching E-bay, but no window trim on there yet. Thanks again. C-ya

The first result from Craiglook when I typed in Ford Falcon Trim was the complete trim from a 4 door 65. You may have to buy more than you need but it may be worth contacting the guy. Better to have too much than too little though.

Funny thing, used to go to swap meets and it seemed that everyone had a few of those Falcon/Comet trim corners in their booths. It's one of the easiest parts to remove from a Falcon. I always asked, "Who would want that?".

Now people are looking for them. I have a few, somewhere. Let me look and get back at a later date.

Thanks. Not in a hurry for the trim, but would like to get a couple of peices after I get it running better. Did the rear window trim go around all 4 sides or was the bottom of the rear window trim less? Just noticed I only had trim around the rear window on 3 sides. C-ya

is it the same as a 63????????? I have them
They look to be the same, but someone with more knowledge would have to verify. If the OP doesn't want them then I'll take em!

I've been in no hurry but, coincidentally, I need the same piece for my 63. Let me know how much you want for it

To the last message, take off and "redo" stainless steel (not chromaluminum as I originaly stated 6/21/10) pieces??? That would be a waste of money as the parts are too thin to redo, especially if he had lost the parts to begin with.

All of the TALL indshields from 1960 through the 1965 model years had the same "chrome" trim (which are actually an alloy of chrome and aluminum.WRONG!). (Which are actually STAINLESS STEEL)Likewise the hardtop and converts during 63-65 with SHORT windsheilds used the identical trim pieces which were UNIQUE to those short windshields.

I did find a pair of front corner pieces in my toolbox, they fit the TALL windshield of the sedans and wagons, NOT the convert/hardtop. Send me a private message through this site as I will be montitoring the site next week.


As for the back glass: Sedans: If there is trim then it covers the top and sides, NOT the bottom unless the car is a hardtop.

However, not all trim levels had trim around the back glass, just the bare rubvber sealer.

Hope this is not confusing as the more I write today the more confused I'm getting!


Brain fade on my part. The Falcon's front and rear glass trim are made of thin stainless steel. "Chromealuminum" was the alloy which was used for logos (the car's brand name, etc.) and are stamped out. When I was working I made tooling for several car logos and perhaps that's why I originally said "chromealuminum". Sorry bout that!
