Currently rebuilding a 55 Customline. Plan on installing a 5.0L FI w/ AOD trans. Any help with info on this swap would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome aboard - photos are always welcome of your project.

Nice project, convert the '55 to 12V, weld in some motor mount brackets, drop the engine in that cavern of an engine compartment and go cruising. Oh and upgrade that sloppy OEM suspension and replace the tender rear end with at least a minimum of an 8" though an 8.8" or 9" is better then add better brakes on all 4 corners. Other then that, ask lots of questions if you have them, and someone will have a logical answer.
