i didnt do the conversion,(previous owner).i did alot of the " getting the stupid out" no longer gonna use the computer anymore so if you want your engine bay to look clean there is gonna be alot of going through wires,figuring out what you dont need anymore.i am sure its a pretty easy swap though.

the price of the rebuild is gonna depend on what you want to do with the motor.

You can always get a budget block to save time and probably money. Latemodel restoration has them for 699.

You can try to find a 98 and up ford explorer motor it's got the GT40 heads nice foundation and put your carb on it. They go for about 800 complete.

You can use a 96 and up, but change the cam.

There are plenty of budget rebuild kits available in any CU you want and any style of kit. Some with rings, bearings and gaskets. Some with all that and crank, rods, and pistons. crate motors there are tons of short block set ups available, which you can add whatever heads and intake you want. If you want a good combo for a good price I'd go crate motor, or long/short block from ford or DSS as you can get a warranty and you'll know what your getting and have a tech dept to help you make the right choices.

As for the car there are several options as well. Repo auctions, public auto auctions, finance companies. There are several insurance salvage yards in my area where awesome deals can be had. Mustang Parts Speacialties in GA used to have lots of stangs for sale. There is always eBay and craigslist, where you can find good cars, or even a rolling chasis's that are built with everything but your motor. Don't be afraid to shop away from your local market either, sometimes you have to go and get what you want.
