I saw a 65 Mustang on Ebay that had the whole front suspension on his car, but he used the whole front clip......shock towers, frame ect......it fit.

Sure. With a good welder, a big hammer, a lot of patience, and the skill of David Stribling, you can make anything fit.

You probably won't be any better off than you are now, though.
