All I have right now are these two pics. Can anyone tell me what era and type of vehicle this might have been in? Has a C6 attached.

'68 to '71 Thunderbird, as a wild-a$$ guess

Hard to say. The tranny looks like it might be the short tail variety that'll fit a Mustang. I think I can see the flat pad for the tranny mount. The T-bird long tail had a 45* mount and a really long tail.

 

Engine does look right to be a Thunderjet. I had a '72 T-brd and the gear on the engine looks earlier vintage than mine, so I'd agree with Don on 68-71.

 

Get some more pics and casting #'s & dates so we can see what you've really got there.

I sent an email to the guy for some additional pics and date code.

Ribbed tranny case is a good indicator of early origin.

 

Don't trust any "description". Casting numbers and date codes tell all.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.

The air cleaner assembly age doesn't appear to match the engine age. The presence of smog equipment, a Ford rebuilt Holley 4180 carb with what appears to be a governor says heavy truck engine to me. It could even be a 370. Chuck
