With $$ you can do anything to a car. You could do it but it'd be expensive.
I have 4 Gs and I can get the engine from this car that's total for like 400 and 1970 that has bad engine for a 1000 so u think I could get it installed with the rest of the money?

Wouldn't you still need to look at a new rear axle? Trans?

I'd be surprised if, at 4 grand all in, the car you'd come away with would be any good as a driver.

Maybe think bout seeing if justa taking the body off the new mustang and fix frame damage and whatnot (if any) then stick the body of the old one onto it. Might work out better. If thatd be possible

If u had a 1970 mustang gt could u put a 2011 engine inside it??
Short answer: yes. I've seen a '65 with a Coyote swap & it was sweet. I am certain they spent far more than the $4k you mentioned to do it.

Can you get the transmission, computer, wire harness, axle, etc. off that car as well? I'd try to get everything you can if you decide to try this.

I highly doubt you will be able to attain a mildly used coyote engine for $400 even from a total. Take off engines run over 6k by themselves and you still need the trans and CPU/harness as well. Plus all the other things you need, your looking at 10k minimum and that doesn't include labor if you can't fabricate what you need yourself.
