i guess it is possible that it came from a 80 and up truck. i should have looked closer at the pan. does anyone know what this came out of? the ps and a/c bracket is throwing me off. i havent seen one like this before. well i have once. but not with a/c. and it had been transplanted into a 68 F100.

The casting number for the block would be onthe side behind the starter. The D9te would be the later model block, c8,c9,do, or d1 would be early if that helps.

It looks to me like it's off a 75-78 Lincoln Continental/ Mark V. I have a continental with a 460 and the brackets all look exactly like that.

good thank you. forsoem reason i was beginning to think it was out of a 80' model truck. im goign to check another 80 something truck tomorrow and find out for sure. the oil pan should also give me a clue to car or truck i think.

Bassed on the accessory layout, accessory brackets, distributor, carburetor, lack of thermactor passages, and emissions label, I would say it is positively a 1973 429 or 460.

The MM are definitely 72 to 76 t bird or 72 to 79 mark...

They are the only combos i have seen that utilise that accessory bracket layout and saginaw pump....

Those motor mounts will allow that engine to drop into any 72 to 76 torino or montego or ranchero
74 to 79 cougar
77 to 79 cougar, ltd 2 or thunderbird or ranchero

SAVE THEM !!!





:D

that engine could not possibly come out of a 1980 truck. (as OEM)
460 were not available in the trucks from 80-82, and it has a front sump pan.
