:shock: Do you realize this is The Ford Six Site? To answer your question though a 351C isn't going to fit without some radical surgery to the shock towers. I did this many years ago on a 63 Fairlane (a Gasser drag car) it didn't handle or stop very well. Good luck :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

If its a true 351 CJ Torino Id hope the body was trash or wrecked or something. It'd be a crying shame to waste one nice classic to ruin another. Just my $.02.The Cleavland would be a real tight fit and forget about changing spark plugs once it's in unless you do a Mustang II front end and get rid of the shock towers.
