New possible project

Asked by Jun 27, 2016 at 12:41 AM about the 1978 Ford Mustang Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have this 78 mustang lx that was given to me. It
has the 4 cyl and a 4 speed. I was to know exactly
what parts Are required to turn it into a 5.0. Im
familiar with Cars but this is the first time I'm going
to try it on my own. Does anyone have any
information? I also want to know what other model
years I can steal parts off of. Thanks

Like Kelly said, not worth messing around with a 4cyl car unless the body is rust free. Maybe best to sell it to fun a V8 Project.
