I'm using the Moroso 30929, but keep in mind pretty much everybody agrees on here it's a horrible pan. I'm using mine on a 57 Ford and it fits beautiful, which was
my main goal. I have Crites headers and have no clearance issues and pan sits fairly high also. Iv'e not had any oil starvation issues, either braking or accelerating.
My car isn't fast, runs mid-11's so even the stock 69 front pan would probably work with a baffle welded in.

I cant speak for fitment of the other pans you listed.

Milodon 30929,  8 qt, 9 1/2" deep
Canton 15-750,  8 qt,  10" deep
Canton 15-764,  7 qt,  8 1/2" deep
Stef's 1070,  7 qt,  8" deep

Street driven Ranchero, any one would probably be OK for me, I'm more
concerned with ground clearance I suppose. Have Hooker 6126 headers.

Just wondering if anyone has a particular favorite.

I use the Canton 15-764 with good success in most cars but, sometimes the headers used won't clear the wider, kicked-out" "T" sump section.
In those cases, I simply use the 15-750 pan. To deep sump in most street applications.

They do have a Cobra Jet "copy" oil pan with a simple slosh baffle; #15-745

That Stef's pan looks nice but its expensive and Summit claims its 9" deep but that could be a mis-print. I'm in the same boat as you JBR, I need a front sump for my Galaxie and at this point I'm gonna go with the 15-750 with a custom pickup. I am going to make some custom engine mounts to raise the engine and put it exactly where I want it though.

The 15-764 is going to be the best choice for that chassis. A deeper pan may have interference issues with the cross-member and/or stabilizer bars. 6126 headers are a non-issue because they go back and over the motor mounts and cross-member.
