    a friend of mine had a MKIII zodiac with a 302 in 20 years ago I don`t think the bulkhead was cut .I recall it had stock front suspension but with narrowed 8 inch rear mustang axle.it had 14 inch steel mustang wheels all round

    302/c4 fits easy. even the umbrella handbrake can still work, just re angle the cable roller bracket towards the o/s to clear the rocker cover. 351w and 351c similar story with the additional job of adding a flat to the side of the fan housing to clear the n?s rocker cover. i even had one with a tall deck 400m although the servo had to be replaced with a remote item due to the width along with an internal heater fan. mounting the gearbox from memory i turned the chassis mounts upside down to lower the crossmember a little bit for tunnel clearance.
    regards, neil.
    ps here's one with a 351w i prepared earlier, note the heater fan housing with the 'flat' part.

    Got a Cleveland in mine but the steering is tight around the sump. Junked the drag links in favour of a rack now. Wheels are standard American fitting. Got 8x15 Cragars on the back of mine, had to cut the inner lip off the arches and put a rod from the chassis to the diff to stop them rubbing on traffic islands and tight bends.
    No longer selling anything Hot Rod related. Not on this site anyway. Don't bother searching Ebay either, they got too greedy.........
