'63's had the 260 V8 as an option, with the 170 6cyl as the std engine.. so you have a source for the parts.. now you'll need a v8 parts car.. theres a few things like spindles and brakes can come from a Granada/ monarch ( with a tie rod adaptor ).. but IIRC, the '63 v8 stuff was a 1 year only deal ( the cars retained the V8 for '64 but there much diffrent, even tho simmilar cars in mech design ).. I know the frame to engine brackets were diffrent than '64-'65 so you'll need them and also to do the swap 'correctly' a V8 steering box.. power steering might be possible with a mustang P/S box. also, you'll want Maverick 8"... why not a warmed up 6cyl? it'll move the light roundbody just fine.. 1 '63 runs in the 10's on a turbocharged 250 and it's streetable
