98 Mustang 4.6GT into 1950 Ford F2

I have been offered a 98 4.6GT engine and transmission with all the looms and computers.The package has done less then 4000 miles. Has anyone swapped these into an early model pickup. What other parts would I need to complete it and would it be worth doing?

It sounds like you've got all the parts to do a retrofit. I'd definitely give it a shot.

It's the differen't swaps like this that get your truck noticed. I saw this same setup in a 49 merc. That was a killer looking ride. I'd say it's worth a shot. It's always nice to see someone actually putting Ford engines in their Fords.

I have now bought the engine and box. Also I can have the pedal box etc. Everything is either stainless or billet. It was a bargain at 1500.00 (around $2400.00). Plus I can pick over what ever else is on the car, was thinking of having the rear end as well. My other choice of engine was a small block chevy. But decided to keep it all Ford.

is the F-2 wider than the F-1? I saw a 49 a few years ago with a 289 wedged in. The guy told me he couldnt get the engine in or out with the heads on. The 4.6 is MUCH wider than a 289. Unless you do a frame off and set the body down on top of the engine I dont have a clue how you would ever get it in. But it sounds like a good swap especially if you add a blower.
