Oil Filter Question

Hey guys, I just picked up this old 300 I6 and I have never seen a oil filter mounted like this. All the pics I have seen of the I6's have the filter screwed directly to the side of the block. Can you guys help me out here? Is this some sort of adapter to use a larger filter perhaps?

Not sure if it's original but they came on Econolines and are good to find when you do an engine swap and it's too tight for a filter. Usually they can be swiveled into different positions.

Found out after doing some reasearch that its actually a 240 and not a 300. SO from what I read and understand the block is the same for both but the heads are what makes the differance, but the 240 has a better compression ratio which give you getter power. It's been sitting for a long time and I'm hoping to get it freed up and and that its salvageable. I'm looking to put it into an 89F250 so room in the engine bay is not an issue.

I just bought this one:

Ford Racing M-6880-A50 - Ford Racing Oil Filter Adapters - Overview - SummitRacing.com

I have not had time to install it yet. It may not be an exact copy of the one used in the Econolines, but it is a Ford Racing part, so it should be good quality.

While cruising the junk yards, look for a 460...I think they came with an oil filter mount like that.
