68-69 Torino vs 70-71 Torino engine compartment & mounts

Post  FalconEh on November 16th 2015, 11:41 pm

Looking for any dimensional information available on the differences in size between the 70up and pre70 engine compartments for a potential street build (pre-70 Torino) I have a set of 70-71 Torino 429 engine mounts and do not want a motor plate on this deal. If you can help with some key measurements it is appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks Steve,
What I am really interested in is the distance between the top of the shock towers on the inner edge (closest distance between them), and the distance between the frame rails in front of the bottom of the shock towers (again closest distance between them on the rail not the lip). Last would be from the shock bolt to the firewall straight back (passenger side is easiest)

If I'm not mistaken, they are identical in size.

I have a 302 in my 68 but I'll do the best I can in the next couple days to get those for you.

That's what I believe, but a few inches can be a game changer.
