Thumbs up Re: 460 in a Grand Marquis?

I'm pretty sure it could be done with only changing the motor mounts and making sure the radiator and some of the external engine components would be able to cool, etc. the new motor.

Re: 460 in a Grand Marquis?

Depends on the year. 1979-1991 will fit a 460, use a duel sump pan with I think 70-79 rachero squire 460 motor mounts, reduce the fan by 1.5 inchs, best to use a 4 core radiator from a mid 80s bronco. I have a 1982 crown victoria hurst with a 460 linked up to a 9" 3.05 ratio rear gear and complemented with nice mag/aluminum 5 hole mustang wheels from 1985 :) Or if you have a welder, spear metal, and creative juices then it will fit :)
