I saw an AOD in the boneyard shackled to a 302. If it works on a 302, it will work on a 351-C. So yes, I agree that an older AOD will probably work, at least bolt up anyway. You shoul also be able to use the old driveshaft, too if you have an FMX or C-4. If you're rodding, I'd recommend a souped up C-4 over an AOD. C-6 is a great trans, but it will rob a kindly chunk of horsepower. C-4's are rumored to rob about 25% less horsepower than a C-6. If you're burning too much gas, you can get some shorter gears which might help. There's a world of difference between 3.8's compared to 2.7's.
