I'm able to get my hands on a 302 windsor off a mate, and I'm thinking of putting it in an old s**t (can be anything, doesnt need to be a ford and CHEAP) as a paddock goer or whatever we decide to do with it. I dont mind if there needs to be a little bit of fabricating for mounts and such, a little bit of challenge is good sometimes.

some ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers.
Sam.

Any of them. 351 Clevelands have been fitted to Sigmas before so a puny WIndsor will fit.
Also a windsor would fit a 80's model bluebird. There used to be one kicking around Melbourne with an injected 5.0 Holden in it.

Ok thanks mate I'll do a bit of research. Wouldnt mind something with a ladder type chassis and leaf sprung. But whatever will work will be great. Just want something random to mess around with.

I actually saw a guy over on Fordforums fit a 460 big block to a centura a few years ago.

this or this,

DEFINATLY THIS!! A wagon on a farm/property is invaluable, collect wood for fires, transport people to fire, Transport grog to fire, when it rain get shelter from weather while watching fire, drive back to camp after fire is finished.

Fire is awesome.

BTW, a 302 drops straight into a volvo 200 series bay after you fabricate mounts, dellows makes a 302 to moss box bellhousing as well.
