late 80's Ford truck engine and 5 speed tranny.

so a friend of mines father has a late 80's f150. runs fine. efi. only thing wrong with it is the clutch is gone. he wants 400 bucks for I think the engine and tranny. I know the engine can fit. but the tranny. is there s difference between the ratios in trucks and mustangs?

That transmission would be difficult to "shoehorn" into a car, and yes, the ratios are VERY different in a.truck transmission.
Try to get the whole truck for $400. When you're done scavenging parts off of it, you'll be able to scrap it and get your money back...

If it's still in "acceptable" condition that would be the most practical plan...

Even if it was the correct 5.0 HO motor (it isn't) or the right trans (it isn't) it's not just a drop in and go for a V6 car. You'd need a harness, fuel system, computer, all the sensors etc... etc...

Scrap it or fix the clutch and drive it IMO.
