95 GT 5.0 swap into 66 Mustang

Gents. New here. I recently purchased 95 GT with plans to do engine swap. I know there tons of articles but my question is what else can I use off this donor? It has no tranny. Originally a 5 speed. But still has bell housing attached. Engine compartment is complete. Suspension is all there. I would like to use ac stuff like condenser, hoses, etc. Mayor power steering?
Thank you for any pointers.

Unless you're doing a major restomod there is very little that can be used. The front and rear suspensions are completely different between '66 and '95. So is the steering. As far as A/C components- you may be able to use the condenser but a new one that fits correctly is extremely inexpensive.

Like 120mm said, engine, transmission, and that's about it. For your purpose you could have gotten the same drivetrain out of F150 if it's an automatic. And likewise not been able to use anything else.

You'll be able to use the accessories with some work. But hoses, steering components, AC components (outside of the compressor), are all junk for what you have.

T5 can be used, but it's longer by an inch with that bell housing. The bell housing you have will not work with a fox input shaft. It'll be too short.

Harnesses, intake, EFI, all of that is relatively not useful for your goal. Same goes for the headers.

All that car will be good for is the longblock. And even then, you'll need to swap the pan out and find a way to add a front dipstick hole in the timing cover.

Thank you guys for the tips. I was hoping to use a lot more than just the block itself. Maybe even the rear disc brake set up, not actual rear end. Or even clutch cables or clutch itself. Any little stuff helps. I know everyone says it. But I’m on a DIY BUDGET. Lol.

What do you have on your 66? Is it a V8 or I6?

You can always recoup some of your investment by selling the rest of the car. If it has a title and isn't totally wrecked out or something. I've got an eye out for '94-5 to put an engine in myself.

I used a bit more. But in your case, the 3g alt is about all.

Thanks for the offer. I have driven to Dallas from here and I'd say it's a bit far for a rust belt SN95 for me. Not quite worth it. Me and #2 grandson have an idea of finding one with a bad 5.0 and dropping in an Explorer engine which will up the power over a stock GT 5.0 appreciably with no other changes. Or maybe one that just needs a transmission. Dealing with rust and missing parts aren't really in the plan. Thanks anyway.
