From what I read in the Mustang Monthly archives, use a 86 - 93 because they are non computer controlled. I will be doing the same swap on our 1965 but we are going with 4:10 gears. Several companies...

If you like your automatic you could do an AOD swap. It has a .67 top gear so you could pretty much have you cake and eat it too, so to speak. It would put you somewhere around 2300 rpm at 72mph...

I will have to go out and compare the angles but I don't think they would be the same. The flat lip that the window sits on is okay, it is the part that wraps into the roof line that is rusted...
