Original cars of any type are valuable as a learning tool, if not so much financially, so I always hate to see one heavily modified...but...the Mustang was originally designed to be optioned the way you like and after the sale was no exception. Who am I to draw lines? I've only had one I6 car, a 68, and it had a modded 250 and C4 so it wasn't "stock".
I suppose, even though it would be a lot of work either way, you can always bolt in your V8 conversion, and if you decided later you could change it back, but who'd wanna do that?!
