I've seen a few Fox Birds and Cougars with 460s. I don't know how much work it would be but if you want to do it I personally think it would be worth it.

It should be the same as a 460 into a fox Mustang. You can buy the motor mounts from Summit so that the 460 will set right in.

Turbo Coupe??

Hello

So is it a Turbo Coupe if it Does NOT have a turbo??

I have an 85 Coupe, 302 - C4. Not a turbo anymore.

Thinking of installing my 4.2 V8 + a AOD for my son.

Yes. An engine swap will not change the model of the car.



I wouldnt put a 4.2 in anything id leave the 302 and swap in the aod.
