Hello!
I have a very solid 53 F100 which is being ever slowly converted to what should eventually be a pretty nice street rod. I have a 95 Mustang GT and wanted to swap the front clip and the rear end into the 53. Has anyone we know ever done this or something similiar?? Any wonderful advice??

Have you measured things out to see if it appears to be a good fit ...??

First thing I'd do is see if the width of the donor matches up well with the width of the Effie. Both "Frame Rails" and "Wheel Track"

I have a Pontiac Trans Am front clip under a 54 Effie ...

Just remember the mustang has struts up front. That means you're going to have to come up with a way to mount them. The 8.8 is pretty popular, I'm sure there's a kit to stick it under the back of your Effie. Mine sits on a complete Nova (yuk) frame.
