350 into 67 Mustang

Hello friends,

I was wondering if anyone could help with my latest project. I have an extremely well built 350 Chevy and Turbo 400 that were suposed to go into my 73 Camaro...Don't ask how but i ended up with a beautifull 67 Mustang with a 289 and C4. My question to you is this, has anyone done this swap? Is there a resource available for mounts etc etc? The car is beautifull inside and out and i dont want to do any cutting or fabricating that will ruin the integrity of the car. If anyone can offer any insight i would be greatfull. Thank you for your time.


Nate~

why not sell the engine and tranny and get a ford 351 or something like that...That would gaurantee that there would be no fabing or cutting the car and the car would at least seem somewhat original, if thats what your looking for...But it would be very different to see a 350 Chevy in a Mustang...

I had thought about that, however i have almost $15,000. into the 350 and the T-400. It's a bracket motor i built last year (or had built) that has about 10 runs and 500 street miles on it. If i were to try and sell it i would get almost nothing for it i am sure. Also i don't know anything at all about Ford motors. My first car was an elCamino and i've never had a Ford. I guess i could always learn and as for the being different i LOVE being different. I'm the kinda guy that would put a 350 Badge on the side of the cowl hood.

Even though I bleed chevy orange this car deserves a ford. Why not try to sell the chevy combo and build or buy a ford. Flathead?
Just my 2 cents worth.

I know this has been done! I've seen it at the track, now i wish i had paid more attention Besides it's good to break out of the norm. Anyway, if anyone has done this themselves any info would be awesome!

Your tellin me Redcamaro4spd! I basicly saved every penny i made for a year and a half and bought every part piece by piece. I still remember picking it up...it was so pretty! I made 5 passes with it in my 68 elCamino before i took it out for the Camaro that was not to be. It ran 11.90's with the 12.50 MT's spinning through 2nd gear. That was fun!

Jesus, 15 grand for high 11's? My FOUR Banger is running 12's for lets see..200 for the car, 150 for engine, 250 for rebuild, 25 for inter cooler....anyways, for a whole hell of a lot less, like, 2 grand at most.
I hate people that put chevy's into fords. put it into a chevette or something. if i see another chevy in a ford, im going to kill some people, including myself.

Do NOT put the chev engine in the Ford, the amount of money you will loose trying to make it fit will buy you a ford engine of reasonable power

why not build up the 289?? i know of a superstocker that is running a 289 and going 10's.

put the 350 in something other than one of the most classic and sought after years of Ford Stangs

you can't be die hard chevy if you drive a ford so either sell the motor, or keep it and build the 289 till you find something else to put the 350 in

All you need are custom engine mounts, trans mounts and a front sump oil pan...can you weld? Have you ever heard of an engine plate? Here's what they look like.

Seriously though I would sell the Stang as is, you could get some good cash for a 289 1967 Horse in good shape. You could buy a Camaro or other GM body for less and pocket the difference.

Or you could just give it to me, I happen to have a nice 400 Ford looking for an early Stang to shoe horn into it. I'll even come and pick it up!

Uhmm if you could post those engine specs I would like to see them. Also is it a new 289 in a newer mustang? cuz that could make a lot of difference.

289 were only made until they changed it into the 302 in 69 or 70

it's an old 289, the superstock driver is Alex Denysenko, and you would need to talk to him about engine specs
