    Ford V-10 into a 71-73?

    Has anyone ever tried (or succeeded) in putting a V-10 into a 71-73 Mustang? I don't think the earlier cars have the room without some serious cutting, but th 71-73 might. Not sure if the performance potential is worth it, but it would be an interesting conversation starter at a car show.

      Interesting concept! I've never seen one but I'd love to!

        i think its possible there is a TON of room in the front of the rad support, you could relocate the radiator in front of the support and gain at least 8" of room

            Yes, me too, I have never seen a V-10 in a 71 -73, but I guess if there's someone who's capable of doing that, it would be one of the coolest cars ever. I'm so excited to hear more about it.
