Hello people. This is my first post here. I wanted to know a bit more about the 260 in my FalconFutura. My dad bought the car for me when I was a freshman in high school and we spent a bit of time rebuilding the motor, front end and gave it a sweat paint job. After eight years it needs to be worked over again and I need some good places to get parts(to rebuild the engine) and maybe fenders. anyone that can teach me something feel free to do so. Thanks

One place that has rebuild kits for a 260 V8 is Egge Obsolete Engine parts: www.egge.com/

If you want to "upgrade" you will need to find an early 289 with a 5 bolt pattern for the transmission bellhousing (later 289's and all 302's have a six bolt pattern).

A good place for misc. falcon stuff is www.falconparts.com

Welcome to M&M CRS! You could look try a Mustang parts store as well. The early 65's had the same motor.
