1966 mustang with 429

I was wondering if a 429 from a 1973 Grand Marquis will fit into a 1966 mustang? Also was wondering what kind of horsepower a 429 of this vintage would be making stock? I would appriciate any info that you guys have!

Thanks!

Ryan

I don't know if you could stuff a 460 into a 66 Mustang without removing the shock towers. In 67, Ford enlarged the engine bay of the Mustang to accommodate a 390 big block. I have seen one 460 in a 68 Fastback and it was extremely tight. I think the guy who owned it had to pull the motor just to change spark plugs.

It is true.429/460 family will not fit the '66 bay.351 W is already a tight fit.

Ther are now a couple of MII front suspension kits that would allow you to clear out the shock towers for room plus give a better suspension.
