I'd like to have one of those with a stock exterior. I'd put on a blue wig and a string of pearls and drive 45 mph in the hammer lane with my left blinker on, just waiting on some rice burner to come up behind me and flash his high beams.

292 and 312 shared the same bell with the big block?? so I could actually pull the 360 out and leave the C6 in it and it will bolt right up to the Y block I have??

ford used more than 3 different bolt patterns. the "Y" block, which is the same as the "FE" block,352, 360,390,427 and the 428- the small block, 289, 302, 351W, 351 cleavland, and the big block, 460, 429, 351M, 400.

The C6 was introduced in 1966 and was available behind the FE engines, so yes, you could just pull the 360 and use the trans.

Here is a link for a company that makes an adapter that will allow you to put a modern AOD transmission behind the 312 also.

The R/ R engines that were being build for the P51's were a combined design of Rolls Royce , Packard and Merlin. More more power, range and altitude. One thing they all lacked over the German power plants was fuel injection.

WOW! Great info Paul! Fuel injection back in the 40's and the first jet! I also read about how Chrysler built there first Hemi for an aircraft engine but the jet engine was around the corner so they scrapped it, but I think Jay Leno has one of them ( V12) in a car
