Hey everyone, new to the forum. My son recently purchased a 64 Fairlane 500 4 door. The car has 6 cylender. My question is, will a 289 or 302 fit the motor mounts. Thanks for your help in advance.

Welcome to the FFO!

It will fit as 289 was an option for that year.

You will need different motor mounts
In addition many other things will need to be changed -
Starter
Fuel line routing
Accelerator linkage
Radiator & hoses
Drive shaft as the 289/302 is a different length
Front springs if original Besides being worn out they will be lighter for the 6

That year all units got 14" wheels which should be 5 lug. They will be drum all the way around and need to be in good shape for the added power. Stock auto trans would work I believe.

I've got a T-10, Hurst shifter and bell housing for sale but you'll need to take some measurements to see what shifter location works best with the Fairlane. Mine's a 64 Falcon.
