Yes it is possible. You will also need the transmission and any engine controls and wiring. Demolition derby?

Yes, would it be a squeeze or would it be easy?

Easy is when you have done this a few times and are good at fabricating.

Plus the 1999 Century was a FWD car, the 400 Ford V8 engine and transmission were designed for rear drive. Way too much time and money to spend on a car you are going to demolish

Why spend thousands on a car that will be worth $50 after ten minutes?
