big block fe motor in 1974 maverick :-?
The FE will fit.
Hooker and Hedman both used to make swap headers for it into a Mav.
You will need to do some fabbing though, for sure.
The headers were just recently discontinued for lack of sales, so you would need to watch eBay or look for some used.
There is a 428 Maverick on eBay for sale right now.
I would recommend shaving the towers though, just to save your sanity.
Even a 351w or 351c needs to have the towers shaved to make reasonable access to the engine. My Cleveland powered Mav was not shaved and plug changes were impossible without lifting the engine.
