Engine, trans, motor mounts, trans mount, different length driveshaft (maybe). Since it's carbureted wiring it up will be easy. You can fit it under a stock hood too, if you are careful in your intake manifold and air cleaner choice, and use an aftermarket K-member.

I hate to say this on a Ford forum...being a Ford guy... But a BBC is really the way to go. You can build a stock crank/rod/trw pistoned/stock casting 454 that will murder a 460. I think someone makes a k member for it and stock Chevelle headers bolt up.

Just a thought.

castration of all the B a s 'Tards that put a chebby block in a FORD.....!!!!


just as a stock chebby can be put in...just install the 460 ford.
a stock 460 type block can EASILY be stroked and becone 512 inches... no stock chevy block can do THAT...


either way, and no matter the actual size of the engine, the easier mannor to do the install is with a tubular K member and a motorplate.. because this will allow you to move the engine forward and / or up to create better traction and transmission clearance.
I have done a number of them....

I saw a nice 460 fox build at a shop last week and the owner said he wish hed spent the money on a different motor. He wasnt happy with the results. I didn't question him much but the motor was all decked out with some nice aftermarket stuff.

im a Big Block Chevelle guy at heart , i have owned a 68' SS and a 72' both with 468ci motors. I wanted another chevelle but they were just too damn expensive now so i picked up my Mustang which was my 2nd choice. If i was gonna build a motor from scratch for my Stang it would be a Rat motor without a doubt. When i met my wife i was in the process of putting the 468 from the 72' chevelle in a tubbed 86' GT , somehow that turned into a House instead

BBC crank is rated at 450 hp

BBF crank can handle twice that

BBF bock can b made 557 cubes with no problems

BBC can't do that
