Mustang-powered early Maverick... So much want...

The 73 comet I recently became the care taker for needed a carburetor for over a year before my almost father in law decided to just buy one. I kept threatening that I was going to put a 5.0 and a 5 speed in it and shit can the straight 6.

Always thought this was the best plan, until I saw what a tight squeeze the V8 is in a Maverick...    ^_^

Why would that be? They came with a V-8 as well as the 6 Cylinder

Indeed they did. It was a tight squeeze from the factory too.   ^_^

 

If you have the shallow "block hugger" iron manifolds (like the factory used), it fits decent. This car had Hooker long tube headers with some denting I would personally be uncomfortable with. It would be a simple fix before the engine went it to notch the strut towers for better clearance. 

 

And plenty of stock engine bays look like 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag...    :P
