Default small v8

I have seen a lot of 302 swaps and some 289 swaps but has anyone done a 260 v8 from early falcon. I am considering this just because im not looking to race the truck just make something cool and differant.

I have done many motor and trans combos into a ranger. 255 289 302 351 460 By far the most impractical was the 460. To much front end weight.

The 260ci is 3.80 bore/2.87 stroke. 289 is 4.00 bore/2.87 stroke. 302 is 4.0/3.0 stroke. the same amount of work will be involved and 302's are easy to find. Might as well get the most for work involved.
