Post Registering and smoging

I was wondering if I can put a engine of an unknown year into a 68 mustang and if I have to get it smoged even though the mustang is under 72'

Probably depends on where you live. In LA it would be no problem.

Carmichael, CA? I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter since you car doesn't require a smog check. So your options should be unlimited.

As of January 1, 2003, vehicles 30 or more years old are smog exempt. The DMV publications state that the way to determine the last smog exempt year is by subtracting 29 from the the current calender year. Soo0.....1974 is exempt. I have personally checked the DMV documents for this AND I have a buddy who was expecting to have to smog his 1974 Dart a couple of months ago and was told it is now exempt.

There is a law that states that when an engine swap has been performed, the vehicles emissions must meet the requirements for the newer of the two (vehicle or engine). However, this law only applies to vehicles that fall under the smog requirement. Therefore...you do not have to smog your car regardless of what engine you put in it.

That is unless Davis gets his way and changes the smog law to 45 years.
