Yeah, about 110-120 mph if you find a good hill. Very dependable engines though, and simple to work on.

I replaced the head gasket on my '61 Ford Falcon with a 177 c.i.d. I6, and it took about 1 hour. Only because I forgot the torque specs and had to call my dad to read an old shop manual he had.

Gotta love the sixes!

Your brakes are tiny trying to stop fast at that speed won't happen that's why.And the inline 6 cars wasn't the best handling early mustangs either.

ANY of the early Mustangs didn't handle well!

It doesn't matter what motor was in it, although the bigger block cars had it worse being very heavy in the front, opposite of what you said.
