Hey guys i found a pair of 65 falcons on a farm.. They are to good to pass up but what do i do with them?
2 to make 1 thinking of putting my 427 fe in it and selling it. QUOTE]
You just made me think again of a question that's been bugging me for a long time! I see that terminology "fe" used when people are referring to either front engine dragsters, or Ford engines. So does "fe" just mean Ford engine, or some particular Ford engine?
You'd think I'd know this by my age, but never been a Ford guy!
I've got a buddy with just what you need Mike! A 1974 Ranchero with 428 in it. It's a complete driving car, and actually pretty straight! rust free Central Oregon car, and he's selling it for around $1,000. Would make a nice donor car for the drivetrain with the 428, C6, and 9" rear.And 390s and 428s. I could use a 390 for my '59 T-bird. It's a 352 (not 351) and it needs the heads rebuilt. I see good running 390s for less that it would cost me to fix the 352, so it sits. There are also MEL engines (Merc, Edsel, Lincoln) that are totally different from FEs but were built around the same time.
If I had a spare FE I might look into these: http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/cto/3201391643.html
I need another project like I need a hole in the head. Maybe I can help Vall with his dream of building 'em by being his broker... that would be fun.
How did the cars go over with your OL? Have you brought them home yet?
