Windsor into Torana

Just removed my 302w from my XC Hardtop (burnout car).
To fit it to a LJ Torana as my hardtop is just too heavy,
My question is, Is there a sump (and oil pickup) I can buy
that has the pan at the rear or one that will clear the rack?

I think you will need to get a custom one made. I would aldo expect to have to repeat myself and get some funny looks when you ask for it !!
Still, better than a chev into a capri I suppose !!

Gary's new car is a 396 chrysler Hemi

Have a look at a Bronco sump as the oil pickup is at the back

Not to mention when people look at it later on and realise it's not a Holden V8!
