I had the C6, so I used it. I wanted my wife to feel more comfotrable driving the 60, so an auto was a good thing.
I believe that Marks makes adapters from the ford motor to the stock Tranny.
I had a 1971 Mercury Monterey with the 400 and a C6. It had a two barrell carb and would fry the tires at every light. The little beast made 400 pounds of torque at 2200 RPM (peak) and the sensation of being pushed into the back seat just never went away. I loved that car and I've always had a soft spot for the 400 ever since. I can only imagine what I could have done with a better carb, intake and exhaust.
i dunno, im not a fan of most v style engines. i like inlines. so if you want ford, go for the 300 strait 6. its a real strong farm style engine, it'll never die on you
And has all of the PITA of adapting a Ford motor into a LC and a serious lack in the HP dept compared to the V 8's...
300 is a good motor. But not enough of an improvment over the LC six IMHO.
