1961 Comet

I see that this forum is for 70-77 years but I have a 1961 comet and I'm looking for ideas, not sure what my options are with this car. I'm looking for a V8 motor for this and for a rear diff set up. What I am looking to do is swap the six cyl for a V8 and change the brakes over to disc. Any and all suggestion are welcome

For the most part, your car is a Falcon. Any 260-289-302 will be an easy swap using factory parts with little trouble.

RThomas771 is the go-to Falcon guy on the board.
