Default mustang noob swap questions

I have access to a wrecked 03 mustang v6 standard. I also found a local 89 mustang shell, with subframe connectors, x box, tubular k member for cheap. I'm sure it would require some fabrication, but has anyone done similar. I looked, but didn't find a similar swap. I can use about all of the 03 except radiator and maybe front control arms. If anyone can give me a link to a similar build I'd be appreciative. I'm new to mustangs, although I had a 68 once for about a week until a dump truck totaled it with a hit and run.

Ya, it's definitely out of the ordinary. I was thinking of it as a cheap mode of transportation for now, while I work on my other car for a month or two, then putting a turbo on it later. It was primarily curiosity, I'm really happy with my autox turbo Miata turned daily driver. It's like a go kart on roids. But I always liked the fox body stang

Get on the FB group Mustang6ers. There are a few fox V6 swaps out there. At one point I had picked up a '90 5.0LX that I was going to swap. The 3.8L is a solid motor and a great platform to build on. You can pull more power out of them for less money than most realize.
