my 1966 lost falcon

so last November i bought myself a birthday gift. a 1966 ford falcon completely strip for about 550 with no motor or gas tank but it did have a three speed trans.....




when i picked up the falcon that day to my surprise the owner had the original seats, emblems new steering wheel and even a brand new wire harness kit.





after i got her home i started to think about what motor i should drop in her...while looking on craigslist i found a old school chevy motor head that was willing to get rid of his ford 289 for cheap.... needless to say i jumped on it..... while looking closely at the engine i found out to my knowledge the bottom end is a C code 289 but most of the top is K code. and yes forged pistions are in there along with roller rockers..... all at a killer deal of 500....












now with a killer engine i knew i had to find a new transmission and luckely for me i found another person on craigslist who had a spare rebuilt AOD trans willing to sell for cheap... now i need help finding a good torque convertor guys and some stupid motor mounts lol....

Welcome! You don't see too many post 65 Falcons being kept alive anymore - so good on you for saving it. I know the mounts on the 66 - 69 are all pretty much the same, so you shouldn't have too much trouble tracking them down. You might consider using Craigslist as a search tool and do a WTB ad. Maybe someone will have what you need. Nice find on the motor too.
