Budget 460 buildup for 91 Crown Vic
I'm looking at tossing a 460 into a '91 Crown Vic. I'm very familiar with small block tech, but I'm a stranger to the big blocks.
I see that I can get many 70's 460 cars for less than $500. Is there one car that would be a better donor than another?
Ultimately, I will be using the car as a "fun" or show car. The point is for it to fry tires and go fast, so performance is part of the equation. Money is the most significant factor. I payed $250 for the car, I'd like to keep the engine swap and upgrades under $1250.
Thanks for your opinions!
