6 bolt fitting is for early Mk2 Cortina 1500 ( yes 1500 which is part crossflow and part precrossflow) and then the later Mk2 Cortina 1600 plus Escort and Cortina crossflows.

Not that I know of, the early Fords are a pain even on a manual to make sure you get matched ring gear and starter motor ( different pinion teeth count).

depends on your level of skill as it could be possible to convert the 6 bolt to fit with a fresh centre or an adapter but whatever thickness could cause issues with depth of torque convertor mating etc..

Yup/\ or could be one of the super rare Bendix Westinghouse autos that they used on the odd Consul Capri.
