I have recently purchased a 1965 Mustang
Coupe. It is entirely a base model car, with a 200 CI 6 cylinder and a three speed stick. Its in excellant condition.
My plan is to install a 5-speed and a I-6 300.
We will do everything to make it look as stock as possible.
A true sleeper.
The question is, are the motor mounts the same on the 200 CU 6 as they are on the 300 CU 6?
Here is my logic, let me know if I am wrong or right.
The 170, 200, 260, 289, 302 and 351 in the classic mustangs were interchangeable. (In terms of mounts, mount location and transmission bolt patterns.
The F-150 that I am getting the 300 from has the 302, 351, and 300 with the same bolt pattern. Does this not also mean the mounts are the same?
I know you can take a 302 or 351 from a truck or mustang and bolt it into a car like a 87 turbo couple T-bird.
So, since there are so many bolt-in cross-overs, does this mean I will be able to bolt in the 300?
