I got 27mpg all day with the original cruis-o-matic 3 speed auto.

The above could do 32+ at 60mph (maybe 65)

Rad mod....what rooster said!!!!!!

Ther is a mustang straight six website.
I almost agree. Were it me, I would (1) modify the head to accept a direct mount, small venturi progressive 2 barrell (alternatively, you could use a 2 to 1 adapter), (2) recurve the distributor after upgrading it to one of the electronic distributors, (3) manual T-5 transmission, and (4) re-gear rear end accordingly.

With the 200, the selection of auto-overdrive transmissions may not be great, that is why I suggest the widely available T-5.

I would very strongly recommend you go to the following website: FORDSIX PERFORMANCE • Index page

The people there are awesome.
