You can order them from Crites. Im about to put a set in my 67 fastback. I think you have to use their mounts though, I did. The engine fits in pretty decent too. Better than I expected. My father and I both agreed it was easier than installing the two clevelands I had in it before. I just had to slot the C6 mounts holes slightly and bam, like a glove. MPG also sells a mount and header kit but it is pricier than the Crites. The Crites headers sell for 339 and fit power steering but engine sits high for ground clearance so if you have a scoop your set. The MPG sets the engine down further and there headers only hang as low as a stock oil pan but that kit is 650 i believe for mounts and headers.

its a 70 mustang was origonal 302 with 70000 miles the guy i baught it from put the 429 c-6 combo in it but left everything else the same has an 8 inch rear with 2.79 in it :P runs very strong but i need to up grade from point and factory exhaust to electroninc and headers to really open her up.

ps can the 8 inch take 500 hp at the flywheel ?? have a few ford friends that said ill be fine with the 8 inch for a street/strip car.

I would not try and use an 8 inch with the torque of a big block.

It was a tight fit. I had them side by side...I finally wisened up and put the the bigblock in. More horses, less rpm, and none of that pesky radiator fluid seeping through the cylinder walls and into my oil. Jeds gettin wise in his old age <---24.

Its not hard to swap a 9in in this car. You could find one of the same year..thats always the easiest. Better yet is one from an old Bronco. Mine is from a 69 Bronco. They are small and will fit right under with no shortening required. Although, they do have a truck bolt pattern, so you would have to get some some axles with the car bolt pattern and brakes. All you need is some backing plates and the rest you can buy at Auto Zone.
