Re: 460 in a zf fairlane

Answering you question with another question, how did he get it? On ebay? bought from there in person? and how much did he pay for it.

I've never fitted a big block to falcon or fairlane so I dunno, but should be easy as cause they're big cars, bigger than falcons at least.

not a great deal really you can buy all the parts you need. the problems arise from the fact you need different parts to make it all work. such as exhaust, engine mounts,hoses,transmission,but they fit relatively well. just the extra dollars for the incidentals + engineers report.look and read through the 429/460 tech there is a lot of info there.what condition is the mtr you are buying in

Falcon and fairlane engine bays are the same size in the same year models


:D

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss
