Well,all these parts just fell in my lap,
a bronco II parts truck,perfect frame,T-TOP
Mustang II,good body, and a 302.
The wheel base on the bronco,left to right is
about the same.front to back its about 4 inchs different. Choice. Choice,use V6 and puit a monster hood scoop on or stick the 302 in that Bronco.
Now if I were me!

Gidyup302, my son-in-law and I put a 302 in a Bronco II not too long ago, if that's the way you go, it's a good swap.

My .02c
I checked it out 'cause I have a Bronco II too. You can get Ranger v-8 swap stuff aftermarket but the C4 is (I'm told) by far the easiest way to work the 4x4. The man. trans. in the Ranger/BII is way weak, and I'm unsure if a V-8 AOD from a late model fullsize Bronc will go but do some searching and you're sure to find a page about it.Or call these guys

We used the 302 out of my 75 Ghia II. Pretty much stock( bored .030, alum intake,4 bl carb ). Used the orginal C-5 trans. Shorty factory headers off a 90 Cobra( I think ). Orginal rad.( heats a little in traffic ). Any more questions let me know, I'll answer all I can.

p.s. I'm installing a '66 289 in my II.

Did away with all the computer stuff. Put in the old points system. Don't know what rpm's it runs on highway, but does'nt sound wound too tight.
