Default 1960 Falcon with V-8??

Anyone know if a V-8 will fit in a 1960 Falcon without major modification to the car?

I am considering purchase of this car.....

Yep, they used to do it back inthe 70's. Not sure you can find all of the conversion stuf today or where to even to start to look. The falcon was alledged to be the predesessor of the mustang so some mustang parts may fit..

Looks like it was done, (wikipedia) but what's that part about an Econoline front suspension?

OK, what caught my eye was that (offy?) three carb intake.

I've seen somewhere that the Econoline shared the same front suspension as the Mustang, but figured it was a typo. Actually I've seen it in several places now.

Who'd a thunk it?

I've seen it on several falcons - I loveeee falcons. Fast as heck when you drop a V8 in there.
