Wow,looks like it belongs in there,It probably makes more power than the old 6 banger and is way lighter,should be a fun ride.I saw a 64 Falcon with an engine and trans from a turbo coupe here in So.Cal.Can you tell us a little more about the front discs?A good friend wants to put them on his 63 Ranchero.

If I remember correctly the dual plug set up started when they went to fuel injection. I got the wiring harness for the motor set in. got my fuel pump, and lines 80% done, got to get the 8 inch rear in so I can measure for the driveshaft cant wait. hope to get it ready for the summer
