My '68 had a 460 in it right before I bought it. They made custom motor mounts to move the engine down and back a bit. My dad didn't think a 16 year old needed a 460, so we traded the 460 parts for a running 289 2V.

A 429 fits fine in a 1970. Here is mine, originally a 351/FMX, now a 429 TKO. No cutting of anything.Image

It's not easy to get one to look that good. Nice work on that green '70 for sure! If I was going to do this I would use aftermarket aluminum cylinder heads, intake, and water pump to shed 100 pounds from the 460.

That is beautiful. I love how you made the 429 look like a stock upgrade.
