460 swap into a 68 fastback

I was considering putting a 460 into my 68 mustang. It originally had an FE motor and those are pretty bulky (more of the V diminsions). I hard the 460 is bigger (taller, longer, and weighs more) but it is actually narrower from strut tower to strut tower. Anyone know this for sure?

They are the same width as a 351 Clevo, but longer, not sure on the height though.
There is a 68 fastback with a 460 in it, on www.ebay.com have a look at that.

I did see it... Not bad - tight fit. I think they are narrower than the FE blocks.
