I don't know what the numbers were, but I would guess there were more 6s than V8s, and for the 6s, more 3 spd than 4 spd transmissions. I think the only 4 speed would be the "Dagenham", named for the town in England where it was made. From a web site: "Dagenham's four speed transmission built for Ford Motor Company came equiped in early to mid-60s Falcon, Comet, Fairlane and Mustang models powered by standard 170 or 200cid, six cylinder engines. They were manufactured in England."

I remember a pickup in 1963 year with a 223. Also, the 240 was a standard pickup engine for years? Had one in a 66 van. Don't know anything about these motors in cars. The early 144 was solid lifters, and the much better 170 was just an increase in displacement and hydraulic lifters. I'm fairly certain that is right. I thought the 200 was just another size bump with internal mods.

I recently bought a 65 falcon 2 door and I was wondering if anyone new where I can find a set of front drop springs? I want to lower the whole car 1-2 inches, the right way, I know all the old school tricks for lowering the front end but I would rather do it the right way and the safe way.Any help would be great. Thanks

You should look at a Mustang parts catalog. I bet they are the same.
