    So I got the little 200 cu in I-6 in my 50' Ford fixed up to where I can drive the car but I'm just not willing to sink the the time and money into a 30+ year old inline six that the engine needs to be fully corrected after years of abuse. What I want to know is has anyone done an engine swap on a 50' Ford? Mine is already cut for a C4 transmission and has a Mustang II front end but how does a 302/351 engine fit into the engine bay? Can you get say a 460 in there and still run power steering & power breaks.
