Does a 327 SBC into a Dodge D-50 (Misubishi product) mini truck count?
Some of the most fun I've ever had was driving that truck. Go for it!

I'm useing my 302 Granada - From my '75 Pinto. With the Granada Rear End. (FIT PERFECTLY)

I'll use the Granada C-4 But will have to check the Courier Rear End. I Have a '70 Merc. & '76 Ranchero Rear Ends To use. Rim to rim to U Joint.

The '76 Ranchero has 2.75:1 / '70 Unknown.

In the Ranchero with 460 R. V. Cam /C-6 Thurmo Quad ~ Passing gear From 55 M.P.H. Pinned my back to the seat.

I have a 4 bbl Manifold for the 302 With 750 Holly.

I wonder How the Exhaust & Stering Box will work.

If I find out in 2 Mo's. I'll send Pic's

I put a 302, c4 in a 76 ford courier,I got the motor mounts,radiator, and headers from a company called chassis engineering. The stock rear end held up fine, but the brakes wouldn't slow this beast down.The headers went through the the fenders and limited my steering.I also used a remote oil filter due to frame clearance issues. This was about 20 years ago.

I have seen one in a Courier chassis, but it had a Model A body sat on it, so it probably had a different engine location. I have to say that it was a sweet swap(body and engine) and is worth considering for anyone that wants a fairly inexpensive rod build...gives IFS and Discs up front with no alterations.

Rear End. I Have a '70 Merc. & '76 Ranchero Rear Ends To use..

These are probably 9" rears

The Granada, depending on year, time of the day, phase of the moon, or whatever reason, usually had an 8". The 6 cylinder cars were (usually) 3.40 for the 200cid and 3.55 for the 250cid engines w/standard. They also occasionally had a Chey style, spread and dump out the back style WER 8.7"/2.47 ratio that was a POC for your useage (I had a '76 V8 Granada parts car that had one)

Not much better SBF trans than the C4.

If the granada is a 6cyl 200 CI, than your transmission will not work, as the bellhousings are diffrent

There are several different bell housings that will take a C4 from a 6 to a V8 - but not a C5 or FMX. A C4 is a 'universal' Ford transmission. There are several websites that describe the differences

And Down as low as you can go with at least 1" From Stering Arm Stuff. Then Build - to make Engine mounts Work. Than Make Room For Big Radiator. Than Build To Make Work...

I would sure like to know more about that combination... Do you recall the year of the Courier? How well does the Model A front end mesh with the Courier? I have a 31 truck body, in the family since 1934..
