Hey guys,

Im looking for a 460ci ford engine for my fairlane. The 351 that is in it atm has been sitting for about 4/5 years and i would prefer to have another engine ready to bolt in before i remove this one.

Does anyone know someone who is selling one or has one they want to sell?

Here is a pic of my car. She needs some minor work done to her. Poor thing.

I had a 351 Manual fairlane like that once, Shaker out the bonnet, LSD, was a sweet ride, was so low i had to take runups to get over speedhumps cos i used to get beached, and the tailshaft used to rub on the body when there was more than 2 people in the car, god i miss that car....Anyway go the 460 man, and as mentioned, head to Ford Forums, some guys that really know their falcons and ford motors, i think are more than a few 460 plus ci motors in some of their cars too...

My mate has an old boat - I'll ask him to raise the anchor chain and have a look for you.

Thanks for the serious responses. Some of my family are ford nuts but they got rid of thier 460 ages ago. It was in a XF Falcon at the time. It was nuts.

Im just on the hunt for a big engine like that. It would be my dream chassis and engine combo.

I am currently sorting out new carpets and getting everything on the car fixed up back to show condition. The engine is the only let down for me. It was just rebuilt and there is nothing wrong with it, but i just dont think it suits this car.

Dont get me wrong, i love my holdens, but they have no big block offering, i dont want a chev.
