Hey Oregon. I know this is Ford Trucks, but come on. I got a new indoor winter project. I've been busy. I picked up a '63 Futura 2dr. Falcon. It was a little banged up in the right front, and had a little rot in the left rear. I got BIG plans for the little bird. I've got pictures in the photobucket link, so check 'em out. It came with a parts car, that was pretty rough, but will yield some pretty usable parts, so I'll be building away.
That's cool. I saw an article in an older Falcon book where they stuff a built 312 T-Bird motor in a '60 Falcon. It was pretty trick looking. I'm going the route of a 347 Stroker with EFI. I got a 5.0 roller block from an 86/7 Town Car with a roller EFI 5.0 in it. I'm going to top it with AFR heads, and an aftermarket EFI kit from FAST, and it should be in the 450+ range on the HP side.
Well, I got some more accomplished on the Falcon. I got the parts removed from the donor body. I am working on cleaning up, and prepping the nose section for installing on the '63. I will hopefully get the nose on the '63 tomorrow, and maybe even get the quarter panel prepped for repair
Looks like you are having alot of fun with that Falcon Joe.

To understand Joe, is a feat no one person could possible undertake on his or her own. When it comes to Fords, just about all pre 70ish cars, or trucks will do. So, to answer your question, it is an unwavering YES.
