The later 250 is a good strong motor ,, they made them for many years but don't know how many of those even exist any more though.

 

BTW even though this seems to be settled ,,  i had a Falcon window van,,, and it had a falcon emblem on it .


So somehow while i was driving back from Eaglerock swap meet i somehow caused YOU to post this,,,, do really think members on this site are that stupid to believe i caused it??

Found a clean 250 from a '70 Mustang, but he's really proud of it. The 200 I found is from a '65 Mustang and about 1/3 the cost, so...


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

I'm also not sure the 250 WILL bolt up to my tranny.  I read on the Rumorpedia that the 250s had a different bolt pattern.

I know the 250 I found won't.  :blush:

 

 

Picked up a reman EI dizzy from a late 70s Granada for it today. Should be a nice upgrade...   :thumbup:

I say stick with a straight 6, it's harder to find one of these with one still in cus everyone drops a v-8 in them but Here's my real question, does the van have a unibody build or does it have a frame like the f-100 did?

Unibody. Almost all older American vans are unibody.  :thumbup:

Well dang, there goes the idea to throw a crown vic front end under it. I found it surprising that the front end out of a 1996? to ??? would bolt right up to many f-100 Trucks. I take it then that the van does have a straight front axle or does it have a arms?

Yup. Straight out of 1935.   ^_^

 

 

But oddly, in demand from guys who build "gassers".

I wouldn't say bolt right up,,, with a ton of work they fit .

 

 

And yeah the 250 would have later pattern,,, which would make using the 3 on the tree much more difficult to keep.


So somehow while i was driving back from Eaglerock swap meet i somehow caused YOU to post this,,,, do really think members on this site are that stupid to believe i caused it??

Hey yeah, there would be one hell of a mind boggler, do it up gasser style with a Skyline RB26 in it! Think about, still a straight six but hell of a lot different than any ol v8 setup! XD

 

 

I wouldn't say bolt right up,,, with a ton of work they fit .

 

 

And yeah the 250 would have later pattern,,, which would make using the 3 on the tree much more difficult to keep.

 Really? Most the guys I've talked to that have done say that the crossmember out of the crown vic line up prefect with the f-100 pickup frame holes to bolt to it. I've never done it myself so what da hell do I know? XD

That is one sexy van Tim. Oh, and the one on bags looks decent as well. Sad to see the subaru go though :(

 

Not that this is a vote, but I like Tim's idea of the L28. Seems like it would be more unique that way, but what do I know :P

Welp. Too late.   ^_^

 

 

200/C4 from a '67 Mustang picked up today...

Just needs a freeze plug replaced, so I'm hopeful we'll have it running by summer...   :thumbup:

 

And no, we won't be using the C4 trans.   ^_^

No sir, keeping the original 3-on-the-tree. 

 

 

I would go AOD, but there's zero chance Tim will.    B)

See, you say this, but we all know that may end up is a go cart or lawn mower and that project might be finished before chickenhawk :P

 

EDIT: And they'd both be finished before my coupe :(

All morning I kept saying to myself, "You are a retard! Work on the Chickenhawk!" but kept right on futzing with the van engine.
