manglass is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Not to hijack this thread nice1960f250 but following are a couple of the many sources of crossmembers for an "fe" swap in a 1960. This swap has seen plenty of action in the past, mostly 390's, occasionally a 428, and...dare I say it...even 427's. The outside of the block is the same as a 360. I don't think you have to remove the original crossmember and I would want to leave it for the strength anyway.

Try here:
Engine & Transmission-No Limit Engineering

or here:
Chucks Trucks LLC., Chuck's Trucks, Chucks Trucks
look on pp. 83-84 of their catalog

Good luck with it and start a seperate thread for the swap so we can all follow along and help where you need it.
