Pull valve cover...260 will be makerd on heads, Pull heads measure bore, block number, you'll have to remove starter, but the 63 289 and 260 blocks have the same casting number, a falcon would came stock with the 260, the 63-64 289's were a Galaxy thing manily....Post some numbers, always willing to help....

If it uses a 5 bolt housing it can be a 221, 260, 289. If it is a 6 bolt it can be a 289,302 ,351w in stock factory form.

62 fairlane came with the 221,not used much.
