Well my grandad gave me a 64 Ford falcon he bought in 1989 for fifty dollars no motor or trans. I went and got it from "the farm" thanksgiving day this year. Skip a few weeks we started working on it. I've bought me a maverick parts car so we could convert it to five lug and take the 250 and auto trans out.here's a few pics from beginning to recent.

Cool! I think you'll find the 250 is too long in length to fit right though. If you're going through all that trouble put a 302 in it.

Hey man that is a GREAT PROJECT AND FOR ONLY $50! Sounds like a steal to me even if it was in 1989. Just give her a little love and your $ AND TIME and she will be close to your heart...hahahahaha! Oh yeah I am talking about the car!

well im in high school and dont really have the funds for a 302 right now if i wanted to do anything else to the car. I read that i can use the maverick motor mounts to make it fit just going to have to put new holes in the frame.

Cool project - I am of course a little biased toward the 64-65 sedans...

You can make it fit...I was told by lots of people that an FE was a bad idea...too heavy, won't fit, old technology etc....just go with a 302/5.0. Well now that it is in and running all those guys seems to think it is cool and have forgotten about telling me it was a bad idea.....
