The new guy

Post #1 by oldgriz » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:08 pm

Hi all new to the forum. My son just picked up a 1960 four door falcon true savior car mostly original, but very worn out in the drive train and suspension. I have an extra 250 i6 and three speed that he can have but don't know what it will entail to install it. The car doesn't have seat belts! It's in about in the same shape a s me as were the same age 56 years
The car is pretty much a rust free new mexico car. I also have a 1970 Maverick grabber with a 250 i6 that I'm working on
I like the i6 as it is different from the usual 302. I also have a 1972 comet GT That's waiting it's turn. Anyway thanks for letting me in.

Welcome to the site! The 250 six going into the 1960 Falcon requires some extra work to get them to fit searching the old posts in the small six forum will find some of that info. Or you can also get the Falcon Six book which goes into detail on what is needed to do that swap. 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.

Welcome this sounds like a fun project glad to see others wanting to keep vehicles inline instead of going the cookie cutter v8 option.
As bubba said the Falcon Six Perfomance Handbook is a life saver for that kind of install as it approaches pretty much every obstacle you'd face installing that motor into that car. Good luck!
