Part Number: RF103B
USA made, reproduction kick panels for 1964-1965 Ford Falcon, and Mercury Comet (convertible) cars. We offer kick panels that are 30% thicker than what is being offered on the market. Our kick panels are made with 0.125” thick Seville grain ABS material. While we have increased the thickness of our kick panels, we have made sure that they fit just as nice as the original kick panels produced by Ford Motor Company. The thicker material helps support the weight of the speaker assembly you choose to install. Our thicker panels also resist to warping once installed.
Notice how the bottom area that contacts the sill plate has a flange molded into the panel to cover the exposed area between the kick panel and the cabin side wall. No other reproduction kick panels offer this cosmetic feature.
Note: The 1965 model requires a rectangular cut out along the top edge for the factory fuse block. WE DO NOT CUT THIS NOTCH! We instead have embossed a trim line on the back side of the panel if you choose to cut this out for the factory fuse block. We do not cut out this area because the 1964 model did not use this application and many of our 1965 customers have installed aftermarket electrical harnesses that have the fuse block in another location. Trimming of our panels for a custom fit is very easy with a dremel tool, die grinder, or snips. Please be aware that if you have installed sound mat, extra carpet pad, or other material on the floor of your vehicle that you may need to trim the height of our panels to custom fit your vehicle.
- Speaker Size: 6.5″
- Pre-cut hole: 5.125″
- Depth of pod: 1.875″

These speaker pods are designed for 6.5″ speakers. The kick panels will accept a speaker grill with the outside diameter of 6.75”. We machine a 5.125” diameter courtesy speaker opening in the panels to assist the installer in their installation process. Your choice of speaker will dictate how much additional trimming may be required. The depth of the pod allows a speaker with the maximum depth of 1.875″. Our tests used Kicker KS5.2 speakers. The depth of pod inside is approximately 1.87”. Compare the specs of our test speakers to the specs of other speakers you may be considering.
Speakers are not included in the sale
In our test vehicles we choose to move the dimmer switch inboard 1.5” although that is not required, just preferred for ease of operation of the switch.
