There is a lot of information out there about putting a 5.0 and a T-5 in a classic Mustang. Most of the information is about installing an 89-93 5.0 and there are some differences in the timing setup and the computer between it and the 95 version you have.
If you have any specific questions there are several people on this board that can give you some pointers.
I haven't seen much about adapting a newer Fox suspension into a classic.
1969 Mustang Coupe 5.0L EFI, AOD
The fox body 8.8's are the perfect width for that car, but I believesn95 rear axles are a little too wide. The 94-95 Mustangs are kind of a hodgepodge of new and old parts, so they don't make the greatest donor cars. For instance, I believe the sn95 T5's have a shortened input shaft which would prevent them from fitting properly in your 68.
Thanks to everyone for all your help. I will check the t5 to see if it will fit and I know a friend that has one out of a 1990.
As for the timing issue I have been told I will need a 1993 or later distr. The 8.8 will fit good with late model wheels so I was thinking of boyd cottington Junkyard dogs.
I will try to get pic's of my mustang out here in the next 2 weeks, it is not in bad shape now but still needs alot of work.
