|23/11/2003 16:47:55||Senor Burt||It will definitely bolt up to a Ford Granada/ Capri box as the V6 engine used in these cars will bolt straight onto a SAAB V4 box.(It is basically the same engine plus two cylinders)
I would guess that most RWD Ford boxes have the same mounting pattern. EG Escort or Cortina.

|24/11/2003 09:45:48||Senor Burt||V6 Mustang?|
