By 68, the 429 should have been available in the Galaxie so I would think there is an engine mount readily available. You may need different frame pads as well.

BTW, this is the For Sale section. Post a Q in the Galaxie section. You may have a better response.

been doing some homework and from the looks of it, with the 460 being 1" taller than a 390 and the Dearborn kit mounting the engine 1" higher your not going to be able to put much of an air cleaner on there...I ran into another post on the forums saying to modify your 390 mount and you will have a nice fit. I will give the guy a call this week and keep you posted. Doing this on a 68 myself.
