Hi there, I'm an early Falcon specialist - yes, this indeed a possible conversion, but an extensive one. The heads will fit between the front suspension towers, but clearance may need to be made for a custom header - exhaust system. Transmission will have to go with it as well as at least a 4 pinion BW rear axle. Engineering will require a brake upgrade as well to late 2 pot PBR calipers..Any more questions please ask..CheersScott
