I have one in a '66 Mustang. Swap headers are required. I have the type that cross under the oil pan but I believe FPA makes a more conventional style now. I wrote up some notes on the swap a while back:

i think the to put a cleveland in you have to modify the shock towers to get the headers to fit in a 64.5-66.

if you can find a windsor, that will fit w/o mods with longtube headers

Tubular Automotive also makes 351C headers for a 65-66 Mustang.
Brandon you ever seen a 64 Mustang?
Refer to them as a 64 once more time and you go to "time out" for a day!

I've done it and I love it. Not to say it was easy, but nothing that can't be overcome with a little hard work. Shock tower modification is optional. More details to come if you decide to do it.

I got lots of digital pictures, but I'm not so smart when it comes to posting them.

I've got a set of x-over headers in excellent shape for the 65-66 mustang I'll sell! I'm not sure if they're for a boss 302 or 351C though.

I did not modify the shock towers. I did heat a few spots and knock them back a little, but it was not required. Depends on how much space you want to work with.

Alex, did you know that your bio on IHRA.com has you down as driving a 1964 Mustang?
