Probably, taking everything from the T-Bird. Motor mounts and frame mounts, trans mount and crossmember, engine and trans, shift linkage and carb kickdown link, and the driveshaft. Everything should be a bolt-in, only thing that might trip you up is needing to change the driveshaft length. Not to be a Dic* but if you can't figure things like this out as you go or lack any automotive experience, you are in over your head, find a friend or someone local to you who knows Fords.
