52 ford questions

7872 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Inthegarge
A cousin of mine has a 52 ford that someone dropped a 302 into, problem is whoever did it butchered the front crossmember. Any ideas on how to correct this problem would be appreciated.

I don't know what the car looks like underneath but am going by what was said to me.

I am in the process of building the motor for the car but want to do the swap right as my cousin intends on driving this thing as summer fun car so i want it reliable.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I had to notch the front crossmember in my 52 Vicky to install a BB Ford. They have a rather large front crossmember. I boxed mine in and believe it is stronger than the original. Hope this helps :hy: RW
