2wd 460 powered 70's pick ups utilized a front sump truck specific pan with the drain toward the rear.
Longer sump for an additional quart of capacity.

We keep several nice front sump pans just in case someone insists on one.
They are NOT serviced in the aftermarket to my knowledge.

We default to the rear sump truck pan for ALL truck applications.

Thank y'all for all of the replies.

Yes the pan I had to remove (cut out) from the truck was a front sump that sat right above the engine crossmember shown in the post above^.

It sounds like the rear sump pan I have may indeed work. It is not a foxbody pan, but from a motorhome, I'm not sure what differences, if any, there are between them.
Depends on the type of chassis. Class A possible. Class C van with the centered sump likely no.

There are 3 differing sump positions between truck, van and F53 depending on year.

If push comes to shove you can get the A460 oil pan kit from summit racing.
Though sold as a fox swap pan it is just a late model EFI med duty truck pan.
