If you're considering swapping your 6 cylinder to a V8,. here's some quick information.

We sell a front end 6 cylinder to V8 conversion kit - Click here

The engine of course is the first part of the swap.

Right off the bat the spindles will need to be acquired used, the front springs, the tie rods inner/outer and adjusting sleeves, idler arm, idler bracket, center link, pitman arm, the brakes, the rear end, the rear brakes, and it's likely that the driveline will have to be addressed, but not always.

Forged Spindles are available. However they are for the 70-73 based bearings so the front brakes would have to be for the 71-73 Mustang with OE disc brakes. We also sell a beautiful coilover kit from TCP.

1965-66 cars use a specific rear end. It has a 56" track width and is considered an 8", specific to those year V8 cars. Even harder to find is an OE 9" one that is correct. The problem with going with later years is you will have a rear end that is wider. So the rear wheels will stick out a little bit. Can cause problems with wheel fitment going forward. Here's some good info on rear ends.
