Yes there is a difference. The 66 Falcon/Ranchero are based on the 66 Fairlane chassis which has a much larger engine compartment then the 65 Falcon. You can fit an FE big block in the 66. So I don't think those headers will work for you

the 66 ranchero swap headers wont work for you, but 66 mustang swap headers should.
