    I'm hoping someone on this site can help me. I own a 1964 Falcon Futura with the 170 CI straight 6. Rather then do the typical 5.0 swap I an thinking about a carburated ( 1982-84) 3.8 but I cannot find any information regarding the oil pan. I need a front sump oil pan for the swap, can anyone tell me if there was ever a 3.8 or 4.1 with a front sump oil pan? thanks

    This is a blind stab but possibly look into front wheel drive 3.8s, possibly out of models like Taurus, continental, Windstar, freestar - I am left to assume any RWD 3.8/4.2 have rear sump style. But then i would've also assumed they were all rearward on FWD too. :shrug:
