79 Big block

Ford did do some factory installs of big blocks in those days so you should be able to find motor mounts and such that fit the car..try looking for parts from similar chassis..

This is a straight up engine R&R if you find the right pieces..I am seeing these types of cars in the local shows now and they are nicely done and very clean..doesn't take a lot to have a nice looking good performing car

You may wish to look into some police springs and swaybars to help the handling as this is a nice touch on one of these..

Thsi one is mostly some sweat to get done..Good luck..

If ya get lost come back and ask for some specific and someone will try and help you out..

have a good one

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
