I'm pretty sure you'll have to fabrcate any of the brackets that you need. I've never herd of anyone trying this swap.

Just curious why would you want to use this set up. Is this going to be used for racing or driven daily. If you plan on driving it daily I would stick with a ford set up. Even though useing a GM product in a Ford it will probably run better. LOL

Sometimes using what is on hand can be more expensive than buying the correct stuff to begin with. Anything can be done but you don't always wind up with a desirable end result. If you want an ill handling Mustang, you can buy a used Ford/Lincoln/Mercury with a 460 and C6 for $500 and bolt it right in and have something that you could sell easier later on.

This engine was what I had available. It's sitting in a 79 Cadillac. I've also heard that Olds. makes a good engine block. I'm on an extreme budget right now. I would find a ford 302 or something but I haven't the time or money. I also wanted to try something that nobody has done before. CARGUY, let me know how your friend pulled it off in his mustang II ...

You say that you don't have time to find a ford powerplant, but it will probably take you more time to fabricate the mounts to put the olds engine into the mustang. I'd look around for someone in your area to swap your olds engine for a ford v-8.
