The 69 Falcon has a 6, w/auto. What is the easy V8 swap? I don't need another ground pounder, just something I won't be ashamed of at the traffic light.
How long will the stock rear end last in normal V8 driving? what is the easiest limited slip rear, The Lincoln?
What radiator is a drop in?

Charles, the newbie

The rear will hod up with no problems. Griffen makes a drop in for it. But unless you have something special for a motor any 3 or 4 core stock rad. will work fine. If you went with a 5.0 with a C-4 and a 3:00 rear chuck you should be pretty happy.

Thanks.
Is this auto a C4?
Will a 302 bolt to it?

Notice the 69 Mav name. I just finished re doing a 73 Comet.

I probably should change my name as I have not been in the GM dept in 3-4 years.
