Can I fit everything in a 1990 ford mustang 5.0 to a 1953 ford F-100?

I have a 1953 ford F-100 that im trying to restore the cheapest and easyest way possible. Will most of the parts off of a 1990 mustang 5.0 fit to my truck, by that I mean front and rear suspension, steering wheel, and all hardware

Nothing will fit without adapters and some welding. You have plenty of room, but it will take a lot of work. It's not going to just bolt in : (

The suspension on the mustang will not fit under the F100 which has twice more weight on it the than the stang.most of the other part like engine and tranny steering parts but but you will have to modify greatly if you want to go through all that trouble of trying you would be better off buying the right parts that will bring the value of this classic up instead of down . here is a website you can check out lmctruck.com that will have every part for your truck except the engine and tranny

WARNING: Do not cut any of the wires that go to the motor. It will interfere with the computer and cause you some major headaches. Easier to convert to electronic ignition and carb, although it looses some "cool factor". The down side is if you are using the automatic AOD-E it needs a computer. Good luck.

almost all of it should fit. but you may run into a thing or two where you may have to make some new brackets and things. i would say parts from a 1990 over to a 1953 will require some modifying.

Why not check with Ford truck restoration shops, there are loads around. One in particular is called Blue Oval Parts they specialize in your year trucks, I included the link. They can help with any conversion kit you might need. There's a lot of room under that hood to fit a lot of motor.
