Will a 460 fit into a 72 cougar convertible without modifications, and are 72 and 73 body parts interchangeable?

Yep and I don't know.
The 460 is the same block (385 family)as the 429 that came in the 71/2/3.
I believe that most body parts are the same for 71-72, but am not certain if that held into 73.

Bob, correct me if I'm wrong but wasnt the 429 only in a cougar in 71 like it was in the mustang??

I know it would fit in a 72 and 73 just as well just checking. mm

Yes, Mark, my bad. I lumped them together as possibles in my mind and as actuals on the keyboard. Thanks for the correction. :)
