Can you fit a 460 Big block into a 67 mustang fastback?
No they bolt right in on 67-70 tarafield i think is his name on here he has a 429 in a 68 its a tight fit but he didn't have to cut anything but lose the cross member for oil pan room.The fe a 385 are almost the same size the fe is wider tho.
when i think big block, i think big car, unless we're talking 1/4 miles
early mustangs are small, and it doesn't take many cubic inches to get them moving in a hurry. stroke a 302 or 351 and u can make PLENTY of NA power and save yourself having to notch shock towers, beefing up your suspension, ect.
dont underestimate the possibilities a properly built small block has!
How easy or difficult would it be to fit a 460 big block into a 67 fastback?
Dead easy. All you really need is special motor mounts and headers, which are available. A stock 460 will give tons of torque as you say, and will look stock to snoopy inspectors. Small things like wiring changes and radiator hookup will need to worked out, but no big deal. The C6 trans shifter connection will require some adapting, and you'll need a C6 trans crossmember. Modifying the driveshaft sounds like a big deal, but can probably be done locally. FPA and others make headers for this swap.
