    Here's a page from the 1960 Falcon Owner's Manual, indicating the fuse box is on the rear of the headlight switch. You could search online for how to remove the switch.

    If you are still young enough and flexible enough you can see the fuses and replace them without removing the switch from the dash.

    I didn't say anything about us Carl because if I managed to get in position to see the back of the switch I'd likely be found there a few days later.

    On my '65, the fuse box is under and attached to the headlight switch. I found the best way(not to lose blood and patience) is to remove the instrument cluster to get to the switch. I finally got mad enough last month to remove the fuse panel and add a new one on the driver's kickpanel. Was actually pretty easy and now I have additional fuses and can get to them without any trouble. Now it is not 'concours correct', but too late for that anyway.
