I've got a 67 500XL with a .060 over 460. What is the distance between the shock towers, centerline to centerline? I'm wondering, if with the weight of the big block, it hasn't pulled the towers inward a bit. Thanks

If I remember right, yours has a solid front frame for the engine and suspension to mount on. Not the same as the "unibody" is. Heavier, but far more solid.

No, mine is a unibody. I've installed frame connectors trying to make it more rigid.

Ford did put BBF in them, 390s with PS and ACs a 460 is right at about that weight. I would build my own brace and make it fit tight. How well does the hood line up on the sides? Usually that will show any sag since it pulls the fenders in a little too.
