!964 Falcon Sprint

Well I am still working on my 64 sprint and after looking a too much data I am totaly confused...Many part supliers specify 1964 1/2 an up when they talk about suspensions and other related parts.
How can I tell what my car is?
I have a 70 mildly built 302 that I will install to replace the 260, If anyone has done this conversion I really would appreciate a mentor for any problems you may have encountered , or any input at all would be appreciated. one problem I can see is motor mounts as the 302 has different mounts than the 260 .... any Ideas there?
Thanks , Ben

1964 up has the common tie rod thread used on all Mustangs, Mavericks ect... that's the only real change in the falcon line, is prior to 1964 there was a diffrent tie rod thread and you need an adaptor to run granada spindles...


The motor mounts on a 260 are diffrent, but the frame pedastals are the same.. just get 302 mounts.

Ben, the 260 has a 5 bolt bell housing pattern, the 302 has a 6 bolt bell pattern. You did not say if you have a manual or automatic transmission? There are adapters to mate a manual 6 bolt bell housing pattern to the transmission pattern used with the 5 bolt bell housing pattern. I am not aware of any adapters for the automatic trannys.

That would be a 2spd Fordomatic I think anyway.. best to upgrade that w/ a C4
auto, Fordomatics were not great transmissions when they were new. I did forget about the bellhousing change.

Thanks Guys

Yeah, I should have mentioned that in my first posting but, I Do have a c-4 to install I really would like to to the AOD thing in the future but a c-4 in the hand is worth more than a AOD in the bush lol.... ,
Do you know if the c-4 is a direct bolt in as far as the transmission mounts, or will I need to fabricate something.
Take Care all, and thanks again, Ben
