Newer transmission in classic mustang

I'm restoring a 1968 mustang and am thinking about getting a roller motor from a fox body mustang and possibly the overdrive transmission. Is it hard to get the transition to work or what all would I need to do for it to work?

Thanks

I'm doing the same thing with my 68 fastback. It's a lot of work, but not hard. Do your research, develop your plan and you'll achieve what you want. Are you going fuel injected or carb?

I'm keeping the carb. And I found a motor and tranny from a Lincoln and it's the same motor so I'm gonna put different cams, headers, heads and intake on it. Then the transmission might be a little harder to get done.

Tranny is the easy part if you ask me. If you got any concerns let me know. There's kits for everything when it comes making it work.

Should the tranny fit or will I need to get new mounts? And hopefully the tranny isn't longer than the one I have right now.
And thanks, I'll let you know if I got any questions

Yes tranny will fit and you will need a new tranny mount. I picked one up for $100.

It's an '86 Lincoln with an overdrive tranny. Should it bolt right or will it require a different length driveshaft?

86 Lincoln is a longer car. My guess would be you'll need a new drive shaft.
