I saw these headers on ebay and the guy says that they came from a 60 Falcon that had a 390 in it. Would one fit or would there have to be major mods?

I don't know for sure but that has got to be a tight fit?

Those are the Hooker Headers for a 65-69 Galaxie. They won't fit any Falcon unless the shiock tower are cut out.

The 390 heads will hit the shock towers. They can be cut and notched, but it was not a popular swap as it was just to heavy and large to be done often. In 1960 Ray Brock installed a 312 into a Falcon. Find the 1960 issue of Hotrod that has the Falcon on the cover for the story. Sorry I dont remember which month it was.

Crites selles a shock tower kit that will allow the FEs to fit but no way will they fit in stock condition.Back in the day the guys used to cut out the shock towers and put in a straight axle out of an econoline van.I have a 63 which is almost identical and a small block is a very tight fit!
