The best of both worlds.  I am sorely tempted to go look at this one for myself.  Joe-JDC

When I saw the subject line I immediately thought  '66-'69 Falcon.   Fairly light, different (like the 352 in it!) and an FE ready engine bay.   I believe Fairlane specific FE engine bay stuff will work, like headers.

Note:  Fairlane front end sheet metal supposedly bolts one, too.  I like the Falcon look, though.

What does it entail to put an FE in it.

Fairlane motor mounts, transmission mount,  FE radiator, and transmission lines if using an auto with cooler, driveshaft, and I would install a 9" rear with at least 31 spline axles.  Just about anything that fits a mustang or fairlane that came with FE will cross over.  The motor mounts are a tricky part because of the offset for the through bolt, but again use a fairlane mount, and it bolts in.  Upgrade the front springs, sway bar, shocks, and you have a mustang in a falcon body.   Joe-JDC

My understanding, haven't done it, is that it's all the same as a '66-'67 Fairlane or Comet.  Same motor mounts and headers.  Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Yeah, including shock towers. 57 has none

'66-'69 Falcons share the engine compartment with the Fairlanes-Comets of those years.  The Rancheros and station wagons share the same chassis but the rear springs are inset an inch or so. Any of the parts used to mount the FE in the Fairlane fits just fine.

I've got this one sitting on my trailer to sell right now. Issue is I'm having an issue getting the title straightened out.
62,000 miles I last drove it in 1972 then have stored it since.
