It will fit, it bolts in using the same motor mounts since it is the same bell housing as the one you are taking out. You can bolt it right up to the existing auto in the car or invest more in doing the stick conversion.

Everything fits, except for the exhaust. In looking for specific parts,(like headers) you'd want to specify stuff for a 70 Stang with a 351C. The 67-70 engine bays were the same.

351c

I ran a 351c in my 67 for about 10 years. No mods needed. The longtube headers were a real headache though. I had Hookers which at the time were the only ones available for the 2v Aussie heads. They scraped on most driveways and eventually crushed the tubes. Changing plugs is a couple of an hour affair also. I have since swiched to a Paxton supercharged 302 and love it.

Sounds to me like Hooker copied the FE headers for these cars in designing the Cleveland headers. Same story with my 67 with a 390 and 427.:notnice:

When I found the headers I have I didn't think they were for a Mustang because the tubes were so long and snaked all over the place. There was a '67 Cougar in the shop at the time with no engine so I mocked it up, and it fit perfectly down to the previous owner's dings in the tubes to clear some components.
