Need the help and experience of others here. My brother and I are about to purchase a 56 ford fairlane 2 dr. in rough condition to build into a 14 sec footbrake bracket car for fun. I have little experience with older fords. What engines have the best fit with the least modifications into this car? I have access to 302windsor, 351 cleavland motors now. Or do the FE engines fit best? any help would be great.
