Ford Transmission Swap

I am rebuilding my 56 Ford and am going to stay with the 3 on a tree. I have a chance to get a 3 speed out of a 1985 F150. Are the truck and auto transmissions for the later years interchangeable? I know in the earlier years the input shaft was longer and heavier and the bell housing was alot deeper. I am putting a 302 with the bell from a 69 Mustang and I need to know if this transmission combo will work. I really appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks a bunch!

The later cars didn't have 3spd manual trans and I thought that they used the 3+1 (re-designed top loader) on the later models' which would include '85.The trans pattern is the same either way, so it should go right up to the 302 bellhousing.
