I have only seen a few M II`s with 460`s in them. Anyone know of a place that sell a kit or has Insrtuctions or advise. I know its a tight fit but I know it can and has been done.

Iv'e seen some with 400's in them,never heard of any with a 460.I dont think that motor would clear the the suspension in width,if it did it surely would twist that car into a cork screw.

My buddy said I needed a big block in mine so we tried a 460 mock up in my II to see if one would fit. The cross member and oilpan clearance don't work well (none), another problem was the frame width and the block width being tight giving little room for the starter and exhaust. I think Mark's advice was right on, except he forgot the full tube frame.
