I could've SWORN that the 460 was on the Granada option list. Cars were so crappy back then, maybe it was just wishful thinking. Maybe Lem remembers back that far.

Yeah, the Granada was the last of the Falcon based unibody cars, and the 351 Windsor was the largest available engine.
The 460's were reserved for full frame (body-on-frame) vehicles.

I think Torinostyle has it right, 460's only came in full frame, full size cars, the 429 however was offered in intermediates (Torino, etc) as well as some of the full sizers. There was a recent post that seemed to settle on the 385 being offered in 1/2 trucks (2wd only), 3/4 and 1 ton (2 and 4wd) and was never offered in the Bronco. There was also some industrial and marine usage as well, certainly a very common jetboat mill.

In regard to the Granada, I was pretty sure it's actually classified as an early Fox body.

Perhaps a better question is what cars can a guy stuff a 460 into, most Fairlane, Mustang and Falcon's with available kits and anything else with enough determination.

You can look for a bbf 429 or 460 in these cars...

68 to 76 thunder bird
68 to 78 lincoln
69 to 78 mark series lincoln
69 to 78 ford and mercury full size, LTD, galaxie, marquis, monterey, etc...
70 to 76 mid size torino, montego, cobra and cyclone
74 to 76 cougar, elite
71 mustang and cougar (rare 429 cj)

After the 429 was discontinued for passenger car use in 1973 the 460 was offered in the intermediat line until 1976 except the mark which was until 78. The mark 5 even though it was huge was still on an intermediate chassis.

In full size trucks until 86 with a carb and till 96 with EFI but the heads are different on the fuelie engines so they are not the best choice because of manifold and header fitment issues.

Wouldn't the Granada be closer to the Mustang II and Pinto's? Fox bodies are strut cars.

From what I can remember they never offered it in the 1/2 tons either 2 or 4wd and was only offered in teh 3/4 and 1 tons in 2wd until 1980 then offered in 4wd also but still only 3/4 and 1 ton.

The Granada was built from '75-'82. The 75-80 models use shock towers with upper and lower control arms. The suspension is very similar to the early Mustang and Falcon. Many of the parts will interchange with the most popular swap being the front disk brake spindles and brakes. The 75-80 Mecury Monarch and 77-80 Lincoln Versailles also were the same.

The 81-82 Granada used a strut front suspension and could be considered a Fox. The 81-82 Cougar was also on this platform.

Ford also used the Granda name in Europe from 72-82, but that was a totally different animal.

In trucks the 460 was available in the '73 and up F-250s and 350s. When the F-150 was introduced in '75 it had a 460 option as well.

I don't see why it wouldn't be available in 4wd for the 150, but could come with 4wd in 250s and 350s...

Once Broncos went to a full-size, shortened F-150 Frame, they got the 351M and 400 and that was it. I'd like to shake tha hand of whoever's managed to get a 460 int an earlier Bronco than that.
