FMX is heavy. i have one in a 69 torino i just got and it looks like no one has ever done anything to it. the car has 81k and sat for at least 17 years but the transmission shifts perfectly. i traded a 67 cougar that i had just had the c4 rebuilt in and the fmx shifts harder than the fresh built c4. it does weigh almost as much as an engine, though. i have a c6 in a 79 f 100 and it sounds like the front pump might be going but i think it has 144k original miles on it. had a 59 f 100 with a built up 460 and c6 last year and the c6 was jam up. i've had a couple of other old fords with c6's and have never had any trouble out of them. i'm not a racer, though.
