About the unibody thing, I owned a 67 galaxie 2 door hardtop in the late 70's so my memories are kind of sketchy but it was built more like a camaro or nova than like a fairlane. It didn't have the spring towers that you would expect on a Ford. It might be that if the subframe mounts were in good shape and the body panels were adjusted right it would be fine otherwise you could build tubing gussets between the firewall and the frame. As for motors how about a 5.8 mod motor? It would fill up the engine bay and have a major wow factor when you popthe hood.
