140s don't have much room

245 should work

That is a LOT of motor to stuff into a 140. I have seen a DOHC Ford stuffed into a 240, pretty dang tight squeeze.

the 140s kind of kill a lot of big engine options with narrow engine bay (inner fenders come in to center a lot) and there isnt a lot of room from front to back like a 160/240

I like the old Ford engines having had a big block 67 Mustang and still owning a 69 F100 Hi Boy and I'll still vote no. The 460 is a low end torque engine. They don't make all that much horse power. Too big and heavy for a small car. Great truck engine.

If you have to ask if it's a scam, it is.
If you have to ask if you should swap it, you should.

The room in a 140 is just shaped differently than the room in a 240. The 240 is a bit narrower up top because of the shock towers, but whatever room it has is pretty nice and 'square', going down to the frame rails. The 140 inner fenders come in a lot more down low, but there's a bit more width up high. If that's any help with a big V8, I don't know. Maybe if the headers go up and back instead of down and back?
