C4 for a 1967 200

Post #1 by dmario21 » Tue Aug 31, 2010 6:04 pm

I recently put a 1967 200 in my 62 Falcon wagon. I mated it up to the original 2-speed Ford-O-Matic. She has plenty of power around town, but freeway and highway driving isn't much fun with that 2-speed. From what I read, I can run any C4 from a 1964-1969 small block V8 or a 200 I6 behind my 67 200, as long as I have the bellhousing for the 200. Is this correct? Next question, does anyone have a line on a C4 from a 200 or at least the proper bellhousing?

dmario,

I have one, but it needs to be rebuilt and it would have to be shipped from Mississippi.
It is a 69 or 70 c4 that was bolted to my 66 200 dual pattern block.

I do not understand what a swap to a C4 will do for freeway driving? Both trans are 1 - 1 in high gear.

I have a small round bell housing for a 200 engine.

I have a C4 trans too.. 1968 unit.

Converter would need to be located for the 24 spline input shaft on my trans. I might find that too

Won't having an extra gear keep her from revving so high? I don't have a tach, but it feels like she's winding pretty high at too much past 60 mph.

I'd be interested in your C4 if it comes with the bell housing-- or at least the bell housing. I have the converter that was on the 200 when I got it, so I should be OK there.

Crosley, I see you're in AZ. Shoot me a message if you're in the Phoenix area. I'd love to talk to you about that C4 or at least the bell housing.

the c4 won't change the reving unless the other transmission is slipping.however a c4 has a lower first gear so you can swap a better rear gear in and not lose any acceleration.

The 2-speed actually seems to be pretty strong. Do you think I'd get more bang for my buck by dropping a higher geared 8" rear end and running 15s in the back and 14s up front? Right now I'm running the stock 13" rims, and I haven't gotten around to changing over to 5 lug yet.

as I mentioned both the 2 speed and the 3 speed C4 are 1 - 1 gear ratio in high gear.

Sounds like you need a rear gear change or taller tires to help freeway speeds. I would spend money there first

Thanks for the advice. I'll start there and see what happens. We're in the same neck of the woods, so if you see a light green 62 wagon running around, it's me.
