Bells are available for either.

There are adaptor plates here:

Modern Driveline, Inc. - Adapters

They mention '67 and later 200s for one particular adaptor. I know the later 250s have the SBF V8 bell pattern, but I don't know what is different about the '67+ 200s.

Looks like more of the same here:

Classic Inlines Performance Parts - Ford Inline Six Products

We had a 200 in a '65 Mustang, and while I hated it, I can see that a 5er would have made a huge difference in performance, vs. the C4 it had. That and some decent brakes and tires...
