The AOD, AOD-E, 4R70, 4R70W, 4R75, etc. "family" of transmissions were never offered by Ford behind anything bigger than a 302 (save for 351Ws put in '80s-'91 Crown Vic police cars) and, as such, do not come in any bellhousing patterns other than the small block V8 pattern (3.8 V6, 221, 260, 289, 302, 351W and C, 240 & 300 inline 6).
People make conversion adapters so that you can bolt an AOD-line of transmission behind a 385-series engine, but those conversion bellhousing adapters and necessary hardware generally run $700-800 unless you score one for a screaming deal, which is a pretty rare deal.
You can't simply find an AOD/AOD-E/4R70/whatever to bolt up behind a 429 or 460 because Ford never cast such a piece. A 4R70W out of a '96 Mustang would have the late model 4.6/5.4/6.8 V10 bellhousing.
I'm not trying to hijack the OP's thread, but turbo2256, while I commend you for suggesting what you have, I don't think you're quite accurate/familiar with the information you're providing.
The AOD-E/AODE (which had a 2.40 first gear just like the AOD) was what Ford designated the electronic "AOD" replacement transmission up until roughly '95. Once the 4.6 powered Mustangs and trucks came out in '96, the designation was retroactively changed to 4R70 (no suffix...no E...just 4R70) and the '96+ model year vehicles (Mustangs, trucks, full-size rear wheel drive passenger cars) powered by 3.8 & 4.2 liter V6s, 4.6 V8s and SOME 5.4 V8s had the 4R70W transmission behind them - the W being a designation for "wide ratio."
An AXOD or AXODE/AXOD-E is a front wheel drive transaxle that came in 3.0 and 3.8 V6 powered cars and minivans like the Taurus, Sable, Lincoln Continental, Windstar van, etc.
An A4LD which morphed into the A4LD-E, then 4R44E, 4R55E and 5R55E. This transmission or series of transmissions are/were found behind 2.3 liter 4s, 2.8 V6s, 2.9 V6s, 3.0 V6s and 4.0 V6s in the likes of Mustangs, Rangers, Bronco IIs, Explorers, etc.
