64 F100 Engine and Trans Upgrade

9/16/2016

In this Tech Tip, John answers a customer question about what would be needed to swap some additional power in place of his anemic 233c.i. Ford.

Looking to upgrade from the 233c.i., what do I need?

“How are you?  I have a '64 F100 with a rather weak 233c.i. 6-cylinder and a 3 speed manual tranny.  I’m looking to replace the 233 with a small block Ford and maybe a C4 trans.  All of my car show buddies say talk to Speedway, so if you can help, I'm ready to get started.  Thanks,”

  • Don S.

Hi Don, You asked about putting a small block Ford in your 64 Ford pickup and Speedway can make it simple.  We offer a cut to fit engine mount that fits the 260-289-302-351W SB Fords, P/N 91618013. Crossmember kit P/N 7204136 would be the next piece needed for you to accomplish your desires.  These can be looked up on our website for full details and options for other kits.
