I'm thinking it's a good thing you're going with a different front end
on your Comet. The early Comet stuff is all unique and I've heard a
lot of BS about what fits and where it was sourced. A friend of mine
who runs a shop was recently working on a '62 wagon and a lot
of what he uncovered indicated that the Fairlane, not the Falcon,
had been the original parts source. (steering box, etc)
You'll conveniently side-step all of that hoopla, because you sure
don't want to be sourcing Fairlane stuff for your build.
