i bought a 460 bb for it but changed my mind as the weight factor ,and you need to spend a bucket load to get them to rev n go ,so i sold it

Hi mate, you may want to come up to Armidale for a look one day. I have about 15 falcons in various states. Some very clean xe stuff that I would part with for bugger all. Had a lot to do with clevelands in competition use and still have heaps of clevo stuff stockpiled. For rego purposes you will find that fitting a late clevo block will make life much easier. Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs but when you see what we got up to with clevelands you will understand the point of the post. All the best, Paul.

I forgot that I have a good Cleveland block in a Zk fairlane that matches your car year wise for rego purposes. Anyway this is not intended as a sales pitch, just willing to help out with the project if interested.
