A Stout 460 maybe but not a 429 at least not at a reasonable rpm and it would take a shit load of money to do it.
When I say reasonable I don't think you'll make 700 under the 5,700 that he would need to turn that impeller.
Here's a little reading for my fellow Ford friends:

I sold a 428 Ford shortblock on eBay for a friend of mine. It came out of a boat that he had bought and the boat had 428 Super Cobra Jet painted/pinstripped in 3 different places. So I had to research the whole 428 CJ/428 SCJ, 428 PI/ 428 passenger car engine so I could determine to my potential buyers what the engine actually was. What a freakin joke Ford was. If they didn't have the correct set of rods on the shelf for the engine they were building Ford would use a different set to get the engine/vehicle delivered/sold. Same for pistons, cranks, blocks, etc... that is all fact which was documented (poorly) by Ford. If Ford was willing to put together a 428 SCJ engine together with a 428 passenger car block, CJ rods, and a PI crankshaft, why wouldn't they have also used different heads if the needed heads weren't on the shelf? In 1969 Ford used 6 different sets of rods in just the 428 SCJ engine.
Sorry for the short thread jack Jim. Good luck.
